MORTON A. WEISSMAN Obituary
WEISSMAN MORTON A.
Morton A. Weissman, 95, of Birmingham, AL, formerly of Pittsburgh, PA and Delray Beach, FL, died on Saturday, May 10, 2014. He was preceded in death by his wife, Elaine R. Weissman; and his sister and brother-in-law, Doris and Sander Stewart. He is survived by stepdaughter, Linda (Bruce) Mittleman; stepson, Rob (Maggie Patterson) Ruck of Pittsburgh, PA; nephew, George (Sue) Stewart of Pittsburgh, PA; niece, Karen (Robert) Goldberg of Silver Springs, MD; grandchildren, Carl (Jennifer) Mittleman of Denver, CO, Hallie Mittleman of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Alex (Alison) Ruck of Pittsburgh, PA; and great-grandchildren, Dorie and Seth Mittleman of Denver, CO. Mr. Weissman worked for many years in industrial real estate for Arnheim & Neely of Pittsburgh. He was twice president of Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the Society of Industrial Realtors, which named him man of the year. A 1940 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, he was business manager of the Pitt News, which featured an interview with him in a 2010 retrospective. Mort recalled struggling to sell enough advertisements to keep the paper afloat during the Depression but also the good times the staff enjoyed together. He later taught real estate courses at Pitt and served as mentor to many. He rose to the rank of major in the U.S. Army and served in France, where he managed a hospital and a prison of war camp, during World War II and in the Korean War. Graveside services will be held on Wednesday, May 14, 2014, at 10 a.m. in West View Cemetery in Pittsburgh, PA. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in his memory to the University of Pittsburgh.
