STEIN: David Stein, age 84, passed away on Sept. 27, 2020 in Delray Beach, Florida. David was preceded in death by his father, Joseph Stein, and mother, Belle (Schwartzdorf) Stein, his first wife, June (Kanenson) Stein, and brother, Samuel Stein. He is survived by his wife and partner in all things, Sheila (Dworkis) Stein. David was loved by many including his stepdaughters, Margie Thomas and Judy Weisman, daughter, Mindy (Stein) Ampel, son, Ben Stein, and grandsons Elex and Colby. His generous and compassionate heart endeared him to his nieces and nephews, Caryl (Stein) Segalewitz, Jay Stein, Howard Stein, Todd Narvol and Michele Narvol (2002). “UD” could always be counted on for an empathetic ear, a great laugh and unwavering love. David was born in Brooklyn, New York. He was chosen to attend P.S. 108, an elementary school for gifted children. His family moved between Brooklyn and Pittsburgh in the late forties and early fifties, and he graduated from high school in Pittsburgh (1952). He worked in an uncle’s auto supply store and enrolled for some evening courses before enlisting in the United States Army in December 1954. After basic training, he was assigned to the Signal Corps as a photographer. He attained the rank of sergeant during his three years in uniform. One of his photographs was published in Life Magazine’s “Speaking of Pictures,” a weekly full-page spread on the last page of the issue. Mr. Stein ran a successful local delivery business for many years until he and his family left for warmer climates. PJC
