Robert Lampel

LAMPEL: Robert Lampel, on Monday, June 6, 2022. Beloved husband of Leah Lampel. Beloved father of Carole (Jesse) Mantel and Howard (late Carla) Lampel. Brother of the late Shirley Lampel Favish. Grandfather to Hilary, Sarah, Melanie and Jenna Mantel and Adam and Robyn Lampel. Also survived by many nieces and nephews and sister-in-law Bea Liebstein. Bob grew up in Oakland, served in the Navy where he worked in procurement and parlayed this knowledge into growing a thriving shoe business that included Florsheim and Hushpuppies stores and later an e-commerce business called the Slipper Warehouse. He wooed Leah with his larger-than-life personality and kindness toward his mother and sister. For Howard, Carole and the cousins there hasn’t been a major decision made without his advice and guidance. Guiding them on negotiating salaries, on how much to bid on houses, pay contractors, where to go to school — everything. He taught us all well. To love and be loved by Bob was a gift for his family and friends. Services at Beth El Congregation, 1900 Cochran Road, South Hills on Thursday, June 9, at 11 a.m. Visitation 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Contributions may be made to Beth El Congregation, 1900 Cochran Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15220.
