Marvin Lalli Obituary

LALLI : Marvin J. Lalli, 80, of Pittsburgh, PA, passed away on May 6, 2020, in Boca Raton, FL. Marvin was born in Canonsburg, PA, to Nick and Jennie Lalli on January 17, 1940. He celebrated the last bar mitzvah at the Canonsburg Synagogue, and he graduated from Canonsburg High School in 1957. Marvin went on to earn a degree from the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy in 1962 where he would later serve as the president of the alumni association, earn his PharmD, and teach. Marvin also served in the U.S. Air Force. He spent the majority of his career working in the university hospitals in Pittsburgh for Eli Lilly & Co. – and later Roche. Marvin’s contributions to his community were abundant, including to his beloved Beth El Congregation in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, the Community Liver Alliance, and – in recent years – mentoring Pittsburgh Public Schools students via the United Way. Marvin is survived by his wife, Myra Katzman Lalli of Pittsburgh, PA; son Ian Lalli of Doylestown, PA; son Howard Lalli of Atlanta, GA; daughter Diane Lalli Saketkhou of Boca Raton, FL; brother Bernie Lalli of Cecil Township, PA; sister Frieda Lalli of Pittsburgh, PA; ten grandchildren; and many cousins, nieces, nephews and great nieces and great nephews. Perhaps most notably, Marvin is survived by myriad friends. As his mother, Jennie, might have said: Marvin never met a stranger. Services and Interment Private. Shiva will be held by Beth El via Zoom at 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 10, through Thursday, May 14. Memorial donations may be made to Beth El Congregation or the Community Liver Alliance.
