Steven Shore | Electrical contractor, 65

Steven Shore, 65, of Cheltenham, an electrical contractor, died of a heart attack Nov. 26 at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital while undergoing treatment for leukemia.

As owner of Shore Engineering in Bala Cynwyd, Mr. Shore designed electrical and lighting projects for clients such as Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie; Stephen Starr's restaurants; and the Pittsburgh Steelers' new football stadium.

He was especially proud of his work for health centers, including the oncology unit at Jefferson, where he received treatment, his daughter Lisa Fogel said. He would point to the ceiling, she said, and joke with the nurses that he had picked out the fixture.

Mr. Shore graduated from Central High School in Philadelphia. After earning a bachelor's degree from the Drexel Institute of Technology, he taught at Olney High School for two years before joining his family's firm, Shore Bros. Electrical Contractors in North Philadelphia, which eventually became Shore Engineering.

He was a fan of the Stanley Cup-winning Flyers in the 1970s and bought Flyers season tickets this year with great expectations, Fogel said. He enjoyed riding his bike on the river drives in Philadelphia and playing tennis.

In addition to his daughter, Mr. Shore is survived by his wife of 41 years, Flora Liss Shore; a son, Paul; his mother, Kay; a brother; and four grandchildren.

A funeral was held Nov. 29 at Goldsteins' Rosenberg's Raphael-Sacks Memorial Chapel. Burial was in Mount Sharon Cemetery, Springfield, Delaware County.
