FEILER: Benjamin Zeke Feiler passed away suddenly on June 15, 2022, at the age of 75 in his adopted home of Palm Springs, California. A graduate of Allderdice High School and the University of Pittsburgh, he went on to have an award-winning career as an advertising creative director in Philadelphia. His greatest passion was writing poetry and short stories (The Atlantic, Redbook, Periphery). At the time of his death, he was working on a series of stories about growing up in Squirrel Hill during the 1950s. Ben is survived by his wife of many years, Chris; his children, Jeremy (Roxana) and Jessa; and his grandson, William. He was predeceased by his parents, Murray and Katie Feiler, and his siblings, Fay, Saul and (especially) Sidney, with whom he squabbled over politics and Pittsburgh sports for 70 years. He was very loved and will be greatly missed. PJC
