Funeral services for Bernard Levy, local department store owner, were conducted this afternoon at his home, 1226 Clinton place, by Rabbi Raphael H. Melamet of Temple B’nai Israel, Elizabeth.

Mr. Levy died suddenly yesterday afternoon following a heart attack. He was fifty years old and was treasurer of the Levy Brothers Department Store here, having entered the small department store of his parents as a young boy. In 1928, just forty years after the founding of the business, a new building, one of the largest in the city, which houses the present store, was erected as a memorial to his parents. The present business was incorporated in 1927 with a $2,000,000 capitalization.

Surviving are a brother, Samuel Levy, a partner in the department store; his widow, Mrs. Rose Levy; a son, Morey Levy; two grandsons and two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Natelson of this city and Mrs. Jennie Rosenblatt of Brooklyn.
