Steven G. Joseck, 77, of Kennedy, joined his Father in heaven on October 25, 2019 at Allegheny General Hospital. He was born June 18, 1942 in Stowe Twp., a son of the late John and Helen (Mezynski) Joseck.
Steve was a graduate of Stowe Township High School, IUP, Pitt, and Duquesne University. Steve proudly served his country in the U.S. Army, having spent time in Korea while on active duty. Steve was first a teacher, then a guidance counselor, for the Sto-Rox School District for 35 years.
Steve enjoyed model railroading, out of which many lasting friendships were formed. He also was passionate about woodworking and gardening, both of which he enjoyed for many hours. He was a voracious reader who enjoyed books about local history and his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers, many of which he read while traveling both near and far. His favorite activity was every moment he spent playing and talking with his grandchildren. They were the light of his life and the object of every compliment he gave.
He was a faithful member of St. Malachy parish in Kennedy.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by an infant brother.
He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Susan (Cort) Joseck of Kennedy, two daughters: Pamela (Mark) Vadas of Kennedy, Barbara (Steve) Magill of Evans City, and his three favorite playmates, grandsons Andrew and Nicholas Vadas and granddaughter Maci Magill. Also surviving are his sister, Helen Clouner, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
