FINGOLD, REUBEN: Age 107, on Wednesday, January 23, 2013. Husband of the late Helen Half Fingold and father of Betty Fingold. Brother of the late Henry Fingold; Rose Denawetz; Sarah, Abraham, and Simon Fingold and brother-in-law of Gertrude T. Half. Uncle of Joan (Robert) Spirtas, Judy Half, and the late Marjorie Stein and Belle Altman. Great uncle of Joan (Scott) Berry, Erica (Simon) Manses, Michael Spirtas, and John (Becky) Spirtas. Also survived by five great-great nephews, three great-great nieces, and many cousins including countless Half family members. Stationed at Mitchel Field in Hempstead, Long Island from 1942 to 1946, he served his country with vigor and pride as a Legal Claims Officer in the U.S. Army, achieving the rank of Major. He returned to his native Pittsburgh and resumed the practice of civil law, working into his late 90's. In 2009, his 76th year as a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association, he was recognized as its longest living member. His long life is a testimony to his love of the law and his profession, his weekday two-mile walks, and the devotion of his most remarkable late wife Helen.
