Bernard L. (Buzzy) Bloch

BLOCH: Bernard L. (Buzzy) Bloch was devoted to his family, to his Murdoch Road neighbors, to his job at Bettis Atomic Power, to Rodef Shalom, to playing tennis, and to the Penguins, Steelers and Pirates. He received a doctorate in physics from the Carnegie Institute of Technology, now Carnegie Mellon University. Buzzy was a caring son and steadfast and loving husband, father and grandfather. He enjoyed walking through Squirrel Hill with his beloved wife, Joan, subtly passing on wisdom to his sons, spending time with his grandchildren, writing up a work report, or making sure to watch or listen when his sports teams were playing. The Bloch family would like to thank the staff at Weinberg Village for helping Buzzy to live a good life the past three-and-a-half years.

Buzzy is survived by his wife of 64 years, Joan R. Bloch, his two children James (Rachel) and William (Ingrid), and the grandchildren upon whom he doted — Jeremy, Dylan, Levi and Nicholas. Graveside service and interment will be held on Friday, Nov. 4, 2022, at 12 noon at West View Cemetery of Rodef Shalom Congregation. Contributions may be made in Buzzy’s memory to the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Jewish Association on Aging. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated. PJC
