MEIERAN: Harvey B. Meieran of Point Breeze passed away on Monday, March 2, 2015, at the age of 80. Beloved husband of Gillian Meieran, father of David and Dolly Meieran, and brother of Eugene Meieran, he was surrounded by his loved ones to the end. The Cleveland native was a metallurgical, nuclear and robotic engineer. His career highlights included assisting in the clean-up of several major power plant accidents. Yet his passion was his viola – he played with the Pittsburgh Civic Orchestra for over 50 years; he was a member of the pit orchestra of the Pittsburgh Savoyards for four decades, as well as served several terms as the president of that organization; he proudly played in the Side-by-Side Concerts with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra; and in 2010, played Carnegie Hall in New York with the World Civic Orchestra. Grandson to Norwegian Jews who perished in Auschwitz, he devoted a lot of time and energy to educating people about the Jews of Norway; including courses at OSHER of Carnegie Mellon University. Perhaps most memorable was his humor; he will be sorely missed. Services were held at Temple Sinai, Squirrel Hill. Interment Temple Sinai Memorial Park. A memorial service is planned for the spring.
