Aaron Pinkus, aka “Mr. Forklift” to the community and “Airzee” to his family, age 91 of St. Louis Park, passed away on Thursday, January 16th, 2020. Preceded in death by his adored wife of 66 years, Marcia, cherished parents Deena and Charlie Pinkus, in-laws Mary and Ike Katzovitz, sister and brother in-law Norma and Len Bergen, sister-in-law Helen Rosen (Don), brother-in-law Harvey Katzovitz (Harriette), brother in-laws Art Moscoe and Mendy Gruesner. Survived and loved dearly by daughters Loree (Karl) Petersen and Stacey (David) Spencer, sons Michael (Vicki) Pinkus, and Rick Pinkus; grandchildren Matthew (Norka), Ally, Sarah, Carly (Brandon), Jordin, Rachel and Braden; sister-in-law Chuckie Moscoe Gruesner, brother-in-law Frank (Isla) Katzovitz, many many close nieces and nephews, and treasured grand-dog “Otis Pinkus-Spencer”. Aaron’s family was his entire life, and his greatest joy was to take care of them. He was an extremely amusing, caring, friendly and compassionate father, grandfather, uncle and friend, who loved to laugh and have fun—we are all going to miss his jokes, shtick and especially his hearty laugh. Aaron’s work ethic was unsurpassed, and he was still working daily selling forklifts at age 91! Aaron missed his wife Marcia every day since she died. Dad, we know you are dancing with mom right now.
