George G Panno, Jr.

George Gene Panno, 92, recently of Kennedy Township and previously of Stowe Township, died peacefully on March 6 with his family by his side. He was preceded in death by ten brothers and sisters.


George is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years, Madeline “Tootsie” (Elizer) Panno, children Kathryn (Stephen) Cain, George Panno, Carole (Robert Seeger) Panno, grandson Matthew (Payge Kerman) Cain, and brother Domenic Panno (Cape Coral, FL). He is also survived by many beloved nieces, nephews, great nieces, and great nephews. George was proud to be a godparent to Cindy Leckey, Tim Keller, Craig Lucot, and Nicole Bernhardy.


George was a Korean War Combat Veteran and was very proud to have served his country. He participated in Korean War veteran events throughout his life. An avid sports fan, George loved his Steelers, Panthers, Pirates, and Penguins. In fact, in his youth, George played football for Stowe in both junior and senior high school and went on to play semi-pro ball for the Rox Rangers. He loved music – most notably Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett, Luciano Pavarotti, and Andrea Bocelli. George also enjoyed spending time with his family and loved the holidays – especially the Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve. In addition, George could never get enough sweets! A devoted grandfather to Matthew, his favorite job of all time was caring for his “Buddy.”


Family and friends will be received Thursday, March 10, from 4 to 8 p.m. and Friday March 11, from 2 to 8 p.m. at McDermott Funeral Home, 334 Forest Grove Rd., Coraopolis, PA 15108 (located in Kennedy Twp.), 412-771-4455.

Carol...my deepest sympathy.. one of the greatest times in my life was watching a Steeler game with your dad at one of your holiday parties. I never met a man that made me laugh so much and had so much pep in his step while watching a football game.... You and your family will be in my prayers
