NEW YORK CITY — It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Stephen Lefkowitz (1937-2023). He has been the inspired patriarch of our family. He has led our family with loving care and sensitivity. It is so difficult to imagine our lives without his presence, but he will continue to be with us in our wonderful memories forever. Stephen was the son of the late Louis and Helen Lefkowitz. He will be missed by many, including wife, Dinah Lefkowitz; children, Benjamin Martin Bly and Jennifer Martin Donahue; daughter-in-law, Bridget Bly; and grandchildren, Nora Bly, Zoe Bly, Caitriona Donahue and Samantha Donahue. Services took place on Wednesday, November 15, at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel in Manhattan, followed by burial at Mount Carmel Cemetery, Glendale, N.Y.
A more extensive obituary and In Memoriam will appear in an upcoming issue.
