Bruce Harold ReinholdMarch 2, 1934 ~ October 16, 2017 (age 83)
Bruce Harold Reinhold, 83, formerly of Mt. Lebanon, died Monday, October 16, 2017, at Family Hospice, after suffering a stroke. He was preceded by his beloved wife, Sally Cowan Reinhold, and is survived by his daughter, Jean Reinhold; his son, Mark Reinhold and his wife, Jean Sofranko Reinhold; his four treasured grandchildren, Helen, Sarah, Grace and John Reinhold; dear friends and extended family. Bruce was born in 1934 in Madison, Wisconsin to Harold and Marguerite Reinhold, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin, where he met Sally, his complement, his life companion, his one true love. In 1956, Bruce joined the US Army, where he was a Captain, serving in Landstuhl, Germany. After his discharge, he and his young family moved to Pittsburgh, where he spent the entirety of his career working for Pittsburgh National Bank. In earlier years, Bruce donated time with Mt. Lebanon Aqua Club and Mt. Lebanon Girls Softball League. An avid golfer, Bruce loved playing at courses across the nation and with his good friends at Lindenwood. The most passionate use of his time and talents was with his work at Southminster Presbyterian Church, where he served as a Trustee, Treasurer, and usher. Additionally, he coordinated special projects to support the church’s capital growth, concerns and renovations. Bruce gave generously to The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, specifically to Fallingwater where he sponsored internships and made multiple donations to the window renovation project. Bruce was a thoughtful, quiet man who tackled every task with integrity and grace, showing generous kindness to everyone he met. Universally, Bruce was known as a “good guy,” someone you could count on. The family would like to thank the nurses and aides at Family Hospice for their tender help as well as Jean Royse and Joan Krueger from Longwood at Home who cared for Bruce with loving kindness for years and through his dying days. A service will be held at Southminster Presbyterian Church (799 Washington Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15228) on Saturday, October 21st, at 12 Noon. The family will greet friends following the service. In lieu of flowers or donations, Bruce’s family asks that you spend good time with those you love. Play a game of Scrabble, make something out of Legos, take a trip to Amish Country, or just gather around a homemade meal and enjoy each other’s company. Bruce loved life’s simple pleasures and the best way to honor him would be by doing the same.
