BANAI
STEVEN, Sr.
Age 89, of Troy Hill, on Sunday, January 25, 2015. He was recently preceded in death by his wife, Emerencia E. (Töke) Banai; father of Stephen Banai, Jr., Alexander Joseph Banai, and Emerencia Judy Torma; father-in-law of Michael Torma; also survived by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; son of the late Gábor and Piroska (Németh) Banai; brother of Irma and the late Dezso, Sándor, Margit, and Gábor; also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins in Hungary. He was a 1956 Hungarian Freedom Fighter and escaped Communist Hungary after the fallout of the Revolution. He, with his wife and two young sons, sought asylum in the United States, that ultimately brought them to Pittsburgh. Prior to 1956, he was a soldier of the Hungarian Army during the Second World War, and a POW held captive by the Americans in Germany. Throughout his life, he would express his most sincere appreciation to his American community that not once, but twice, their intervention saved his life, and the lives of his family. His most notable accomplishment in later life was establishing himself as a Bar Owner and Vending Machine Operator on the North Side of Pittsburgh. The concept of "free enterprise" was something he embraced and, despite his elementary education in Hungary, he became a successful business owner. He was a lifelong member and supporter of the Hungarian Hazelwood Club, and other Hungarian organizations in the Pittsburgh area. He, however, was especially proud of being awarded an Honorary Lifetime Membership to the Mt. Royal V.F.W. Post 9199. His involvement with the Post brought many dear friends, and a humble smile to his face, who shared the same knowledge with him, that freedom isn't free. His family will miss him dearly. Family to receive friends 6-9 p.m. Wednesday and 2-4 and 6-9 p.m. Thursday at the HUGHES FUNERAL HOME, INC., 1501 Lowrie St., Pittsburgh, PA 15212-Troy Hill., where a Hungarian-American Lutheran Service will be celebrated at 12 Noon on Friday. Friends invited. At his family's wishes, his interment will be held privately.

ARTHUR H.
On Sunday, January 25, 2015, Arthur H. Jaffe, age 93, passed away peacefully at his residence in Delray Beach, Florida, after a short illness. Mr. Jaffe was born in Butler, PA to the late Israel Max Jaffe and the late Fannie (Posner) Jaffe. He had a varied and distinguished life and was a former resident of the City of Pittsburgh. He received his B.A. in classical studies from Penn State in 1942 and studied modern Hebrew literature at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Mr. Jaffe served as an Army Intelligence and Infantry Captain during World War II and participated in the Battle of Europe after the landing at Normandy.
