HERBERT HELLER: Born December 4, 1930, passed away peacefully Saturday, October 15, 2022 with his daughter and son by his side. He led a full life – graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in Electrical Engineering at the top of his class and had a fulfilling 40+ year career as a design engineer at Mine Safety Appliances where his many patented inventions significantly increased safety for miners. His primary interests were amateur radio, Pittsburgh sports, and bridge. He was a passionate Pirates and Penguins fan and an avid bridge player who played competitively and won within weeks of his passing. His life was a testament to the value of maintaining an active mind – he was sharp as a razor until the very end. Herbert lost his wife, Phyllis Heller in 1998 and is survived by his daughter, Tammy Garcia (Xavier); son, Bryan Heller (Maria); granddaughters, Katarina and Raquel Garcia; and loving companion, Sally Kellar. All who knew him will cherish his memory forever. Interment Service is Friday, October 21 at 1 PM at Beth Shalom Cemetery.
