Bernard Lefkowitz

LEFKOWITZ: Bernard Lefkowitz was a fixture on Bellevue’s Lincoln Avenue for nearly 80 years. He started out as a soda jerk at his father’s drug store (Lebro), which he later inherited. He remained there as a pharmacist as the store transitioned to White Cross, Revco and CVS. Generations knew him simply as “Bernie the druggist.” He never met a stranger and couldn’t walk down the street without being stopped for medical advice, to chat, or, in later years, to reminisce. Bernard died peacefully on July 28 at the young-at-heart age of 95. He was preceded in death by his wife, Rita, and his sister, Beatrice. He is survived by his daughter, Diane Dexter, and son-in-law, Jim, who will miss him with every fiber of their beings; his loving nephews Rick (Rachel) and Jim (Tina) Moscowitz; and a cadre of friends, many from the Sewickley Men’s Club, which was his second family. There will forever be a gap in the hearts of those fortunate enough to know him.
