Bishoff, Harry L. 85

  • Died: 2015-04-22
  • Funeral Home: Sperling, Mc Candless | Get Directions
  • Harry Louis Bishoff, 85, died peacefully surrounded by his family Wednesday, April 22, 2015. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Irene Kelly Bishoff; his son, Timothy John (Kerry) Bishoff; and daughter, Kelly Ann (David) Rembe. After answering a call by Uncle Sam and serving two years in Texas working on the then new radar system, he graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in mechanical engineering and later received his professional engineering license. He worked in various engineering capacities for many years. He loved the challenge of engineering work, but his greatest gifts were helping others. He began donating blood when he was discharged from the Army and continued as an aphaeresis donor for 47 years until his health prohibited him from further donations. He volunteered at several children's homes and was St. Nicholas (a very big one) at various homes for the aged. He loved music, and while in the service he sang in a televised program and later in the choir at Sewickley Lutheran Church. As a life-long Lutheran, he served in various capacities as a member of the board (including mowing grass) and taught Sunday school to teenagers at Nativity Lutheran Church. He was always the first to volunteer to help in any situation and was not satisfied until the project was completed to his satisfaction. He spent years coaching little league and later basketball with his son. He taught his son to golf when Timothy was just 12. He also coached Kelly's short-lived experience with both softball and soccer. He loved to read and expand his knowledge especially in history and the Civil War. He loved trivia questions and telling jokes and his bright, blue twinkling eyes awaited an answer to his questions. He had a terrific, out-going personality. However, his greatest love was his wife, his children and his four grandchildren, who brought joy, pride, and laughter to his life, Joshua David Rembe (12), Kelsey Ann Bishoff (11), Sarah Mae Rembe (10) and Kathryn (Kathern) Ann Bishoff (9) loved their Pap-Pap as much as he loved them. He was preceded in death by his parents, Harry and Susan Bishoff; his sister, Charlotte Bishoff Dott; his brother, Edward Daniel Bishoff; and his cousin, Geraldine Brown Rickart. He is survived by his beloved sister, Marie Dometrovich; sister-in-law, Fran Bishoff; sister-in-law, Joann (Paul) Bischoff; and numerous nieces and nephews who played an important role in his life and frequently referred to him as "Uncle HeHe." He was greatly loved and will be dearly missed. Friends will be received from 2 to 8 p.m. Sunday at SPERLING FUNERAL HOME, 700 Blazier Drive, McCandless. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, April 27, 2015, in St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 13301 Walters Road, (North Park) Allison Park, PA 15101.

An only child, she grew up in the small town of Roseboro, N.C., where her mother taught school for 50 years.

Levinson, Arlene S. 89

  • Mt. Pleasant
  • Born: 1926-03-02
  • Died: 2015-04-23
  • Funeral Home: Galone-Caruso, Mt. Pleasant | Get Directions
  • Arlene S. Finesman Levinson, born March 2, 1926, in Toronto, Ohio, the daughter of Morris and Bess Pearlman Finesman, died Thursday, April 23, 2015. At the age of 19, she left behind the icy winters of Ohio, boarding a train for the University of Miami. There, in 1948, she received her BA in English literature with a minor in drama. Although she had considered remaining in the Sunshine State, a blind date introduced her to her future husband; they were married six weeks later and she moved to Mt. Pleasant to be with him. He was building his practice as a general practitioner and she accompanied him on his house calls. Many times these bills were paid with fresh vegetables or eggs. They were married for 65 years until his death in 2013, and together they raised three children. She loved to entertain and could host anything from a small barbeque to a dinner for the entire staff of Mt. Pleasant's Frick Hospital, all of which she would do with beauty, grace and matching dinnerware. She applied her minor in drama to costume-making for her children and grandchildren, so that on opening a certain trunk stored in her basement, one could find all the makings of Betsy Ross, Raggedy Ann, an angel and countless more characters. She always ensured a "sweet New Year" for her friends and family by sending out honey cakes and streudel. Arlene was active in her community, working to raise the funds to renovate the Tree of Life Synagoue in Mt. Pleasant. She had an uncanny ability to know exactly what you needed before you did, and she brought a sense of magic to the world. Throughout her life, she came to be called by many names including "Sissy" by her husband, "Mom" by her children and "Gammy" or "Grandma" by her grandchildren. Arlene is survived by her loving family: her children, Linda E. Levinson McNally and her husband, James, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Diane S. Levinson McLane, of Tucson, Ariz., and Mark E. Levinson, M.D., and his wife, Lisa, of Winchester, Va.; and by her adoring grandchildren, Leah McNally, M.D., and her husband, Philip Hall, M.D., Brittany McLane, Carter Levinson and Rachel Levinson. In addition to her parents, Arlene was preceded in death by her husband, William D. Levinson, M.D.; and by her brother, Alvin Bert Finesman. A private graveside service and interment will be held Sunday in the New Light Cemetery, Shaler Township, with Rabbi Alvin Berkun officiating. The family suggests memorials may be made to a charity of one's choice in memory of Arlene Finesman Levinson. Arrangements have been entrusted to the GALONE-CARUSO FUNERAL HOME, 204 Eagle St., Mt. Pleasant. To offer an online condolence, please visit our website at: www.galone-carusofuneralhome.com.

Riley, Richard 87

  • Zelienople
  • Died: 2015-04-23
  • Funeral Home: Boylan, Zelienople | Get Directions
  • Richard "Dick" Riley, entrepreneur and philanthropist, 87, died Thursday, April 23, 2015. He was a self-described "kid off the streets" from North Side exemplified the Horatio Alger story. "I'll make things happen." He said it and did it, in every facet of his life. Husband, father, serial entrepreneur, philanthropist, Cub Scout leader, mentor - to these and many other roles Dick brought intensity, laser-like focus and an energy-level that exhausted others. An iconic son of Pittsburgh passed Thursday and a legion of admirers including family, partners, friends and employees lost a legendary teacher who typified the notion of leading by example. The fifth of six children born to Gwynn and Ruth Riley, Dick was raised on the North Side during the Great Depression. Working with his father from an early age formulated his work ethic and led him to lifelong achievement, including the founding of companies in the mill erection, equipment rental, commercial insurance, steel fabrication and property development sectors. His childhood memories of the Depression had a dramatic influence on both his ventures and his lessons to others about the merits of self-reliance, industry and the avoidance of debt. "Dick had a dream, and I held onto his coattails," said longtime business partner, Jim Bonzo. Sacrifice, relentless effort and force of will made that dream real. As a youngster, Dick found the traditional classroom learning environment to be challenging due to his energy level and recreational pursuits. He learned that descending the downspout of Latimer Junior School provided the fastest path to his own education on Pittsburgh streets. Street-fighting, he would later share, gave him his best life lessons in self-reliance and leadership development. Knowing Dick's penchant for physical exchange, his paternal grandmother gave the boy a billy club to assist him in the street-version of conflict-management training. 1940s era Pittsburgh was a fascinating place for adventure-seeking young men, with its nightclubs, gambling haunts and late-night entertainment options - and Dick embraced them all. He would later entertain friends and family of all ages with tales of early morning craps and barbooth games with milkmen and policemen, driving a beer truck for Duquesne Brewery at 13 and owning a North Side pool hall as a teenager. His youthful travels also took him to New York City with two amateur boxing friends where he unloaded railroad cars to pay his bills. Unfortunately, a landlord tossed Dick and his friends from their lodging after the three young men stopped a street gang from mugging an old man. The landlord told Dick and friends that the "gang will be back to kill you tonight and it won't happen in my building." Shortly thereafter he returned to the Steel City. Dick's neighborhood travels introduced him to a beautiful North Side girl, Carolyn "Mickey" Giesy, who would become the love of his life and the inspiration for all of his future success. Smitten, Dick proposed to Mickey shortly thereafter and the two eloped in 1954. The doubts of those family members who opposed the wedding and questioned Dick's commitment to Mickey provided a source of amusement during the couple's 60th wedding anniversary last year. Mickey and Dick went on to build a family of five children and 10 grandchildren. Dick often shared with family members that he "owed all of his good fortune to Mickey," and few who knew the two of them would dispute his claim. His legacy will reflect the strength of his character and the breadth of his achievements. While no man of letters, to those with whom he communicated the spirit and intent of his message was never in doubt - and his word was an immutable bond. He defended the troubled, interceding in legal proceedings as a character witness for young men in New Brighton in whom he believed. He supported the efforts of the underprivileged that aspired to and sacrificed for a better life, as evidenced by his financial support for a young African-American entrepreneur in Beaver Falls. He respected all who took pride in a job well done regardless of title or compensation; working men (like Frank Pivik, who could shovel dirt out of a 16-foot ditch for a 12-hour shift) were those whom he called friends and who Dick used as positive examples to his children. Driving tractors for neighborhood hayrides, leading Cub Scouts, supporting the Merrick Art Gallery, donating to Beaver County each of the New Brighton Public Library building and the Beaver Falls Tribune building, providing moral and financial support to those in need - Dick saw no task as beneath him and no goal as beyond his reach. Audacity, character and effort yielded results and trumped talent - this was his message and his example. A principled man for whom loyalty and family supersede all else, the essence of his life code was best distilled by his wife Mickey, "Like you or not, he was fair to you." Mickey, his dogs, his children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family - these were Dick's loves. "Pap and Grandma" to their grandchildren, Dick and Mickey hosted family at every major holiday to share love, laughter, second helpings of Grandma's Yorkshire pudding and Pap's no-holds-barred assessment of each family member. No matter the miles to be traveled or the schedules to be changed, all shared the same holiday destination. All family, friends and visitors were welcome, and once welcomed to Dick's home it offered both respite from the harsh realities of the outside world and a safe haven. To his loved ones, being in Dick's presence and being safe were one and the same. Mr. Riley was a member of the Freemasons and served in both the Army and Merchant Marine. He was preceded in death by his father, Gwynn Riley; mother, Ruth Riley; and siblings, George Riley, Mary Muecklisch, Ruth Jacob and Pat Duffy. He is survived by his loving wife, Carolyn "Mickey" Riley; his daughters, Carolyn Riley (Charles Lang) and Mary Hess (Mark); his sons, Richard (Tracy), John (Kate) and David; his grandchildren, Richard Riley III (Brooke), Ian Hess, Alex Riley, Ilsa Hess, Liam Hess, Kellen Hess, Riley Lang, Reagan Lang, Sean Riley and Dylan Riley; brother, Tom (Bette Jean); and Dick's beloved dog, Sullivan. The Riley family will welcome friends from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday, April 26, 2015, at the BOYLAN FUNERAL HOME INC., 324 E. Grandview Ave., Zelienople. A funeral ceremony will be held privately by the Riley family. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that those who wish to do so donate to the Butler County Human Society, 1015 Evans City Road, Renfrew, PA 16053.
