Stanley Stein, 83, of Bellaire Ohio, a devoted community member and beloved figure in Bellaire, Ohio, died on January 7, 2024.

Born on November 6, 1940, in Bellaire, a son of the late Abraham and Sarah Mendelson Stein, Stanley’s journey in life was marked by his unwavering dedication to his profession, his community, and his cherished hobbies.

Throughout his career, he was the former Owner/Operator of Berman’s Family Shoes. He brought his expertise to the public sector, serving as City Planner for both Bellaire and Martins Ferry, Ohio.

Stanley was a member of Temple Shalom, Wheeling and a member and board member of the former Agudus Achim Congregation, Bellaire, Ohio.

Outside of work, Stanley enjoyed an assortment of hobbies and interests. For several years, he devoted his time to calling Bingo at Temple Shalom. He was a passionate supporter of the Ohio State Buckeyes, the Bellaire Big Reds, and the Pittsburgh Steelers. As a former season ticket holder for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Stanley relished in the excitement of watching baseball and cheering on his favorite team. Stanley also found enjoyment in bowling.

Above all, Stanley’s main passion in life was his family. He relished every moment and memory he made with them. One of his most cherished pastimes was playing and winning at Uno with his family and friends, a testament to the fun-loving nature that endeared him to those around him.

Stanley’s involvement in the community extended beyond his personal pursuits. Throughout his life, he was involved in organizations such as the Bellaire Touchdown Club and the Bellaire Chamber of Commerce. Recognizing the importance of education, Stanley also served on the Board of Education for the Bellaire Schools. Additionally, he lent his expertise and time to the Boards of BELOMAR, EORTA, Community Action Committee and the Bellaire Jewish Cemetery. Among his many achievements, Stanley took immense pride in founding the B&W Stock Club 54 years ago.

I’m very sorry to hear about Stanley’s passing. It was always a pleasure to watch a Bellaire Football Game with Him and to listen to Him tell stories about His past and the community of Bellaire in general in the course of watching the football game. Your memory will live on with many people.

Carol, Debbie and Becky. I am sorry to hear about Stanley. I have so many good childhood memories with your family and the Castles for Saturday night heart card games, while us kids played Uno, and watched the Love Boat. I also have many memories of buying shoes, at the store, he represented a piece of bygone Americana as the small town independent shop keeper. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
