Obituary of Lee Krinsky
LEE KRINSKY PHOENIX – Lee Krinsky passed away July 24, 2018, one week before his 68th birthday. Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA he was all about family and friends. Lee donated his time to B'nai Brith and its Youth Services, loved being a Big Brother many times over, life long member of the Masonic Lodge #482 in Philadelphia, always a part of a “family” wherever he went. A graduate of Temple University in the field of Accounting, he launched a career in the auto insurance and premium finance industry, expanding his circle of associates. While opening insurance offices in Pittsburgh, he met the love of his life, Karen and married that same year. Together they embarked on an adventure that lasted over 35 years, moving them to Phoenix. Surviving a heart transplant in 2006, it seemed that his strength could take him through anything. Lee always had a story and something to share with everyone. In Arizona he found community in the New Life Society, Donor Network of AZ and Elks Lodge #335, all great people who meant the world to him. Preceded in death by his father S. Sydney Krinsky and mother Harriet Miller Krinsky Levin. Surviving family include his wife Karen Altemus Krinsky, sister and brother-in-law Janice and Cal Weisberger of Santa Monica, CA, sister and brother-in-laws Janene and Michael Kelly of Mesa, Lavonne and Robert Johnston of Newark, Delaware plus nephews, neices and grand nephews and grand neices who were always in his loving heart. Anyone who ever met Lee would not forget him. He fulfilled his life by being a part of your life. Thank you to each of you who helped and supported Lee and Karen through his challenges.
