Henry Vincent McKay, Jr.

September 18, 2022 |

By Maloy-Schleifer Funeral Home | Posted in: Maloy-Schleifer Funeral Home

Henry Vincent McKay, Jr, 81, died surrounded by family, at home in Duquesne, PA, in the evening of September 17, 2022. He will be remembered for his rowdy sense of humor, his stubborn nature, and his generosity. With his white beard, red cheeks, jolly laughter, and giving spirit, he was often (fairly) mistaken for Santa Claus. He always gave selflessly and unconditionally of his company, his not-so-secret stash of sweets, and his lottery tickets.

Henry was born to Rose Marie Gregg and Henry Vincent McKay, Sr. on May 10, 1941. He grew up in Highland Grove, McKeesport, with his sisters Rosemary and Catherine, where he graduated from McKeesport Vocational High in 1959. He married Josephine Pellegrino on October 7, 1961. He served in the Navy aboard the USS Amphion from 1961-1963, then worked at GC Murphy in McKeesport, USS Duquesne Works, and Alling & Cory in Pittsburgh’s Northside. In retirement, he traveled with Josie to inspect slot machines in Biloxi and Las Vegas and quality checked scratch-offs when he was home. In 1997, he traded his winnings for a woodland cottage, which he named the Super 7 Lodge and his family affectionately called Pap-Pap’s camp, in Kellettville, PA, where he loved hunting, fishing, boating, watching hunting/fishing/boating on TV, collecting turkey-themed decor, and cooking with copious amounts of bacon and cheese. Pap-Pap’s camp was always a party full of family, friends, board games, zip lines, trips to the crick and the rodeo, whiskey and s’mores around the campfire, and “Pap-Pap eggs” (seasoned with Velveeta and black pepper in a cast iron skillet) in the morning. Whether he was at home in Duquesne/West Mifflin, or at camp in Kellettville, Henry enjoyed hanging out at the local watering hole, where he was a beloved fixture on the bar and had many friends.

He is survived by his wife of nearly 61 years, Josephine Pellegrino; sister Catherine Macey (Robert); daughters Lori McKay Schricker (Don Kapolka), Michele Sparks (Steven), Maureen Marchewka (Walter), and Melissa Vautier (Brian); grandchildren Lauren McKay-Wechter (Adam), Lindsay Schricker (Connor Davenport), Alexis Schricker, Christian Sparks, Gabriella Vautier, Charlotte Sparks, Madeline Vautier, and Brady Vautier; and former son-in-law Scott Schricker. Preceded in death by his sister, RoseMary Geronditis. He had many dear friends, including his friend of over 50 years, Harvey Wilner, and all the regulars of Harvey Wilner’s Village Tavern. Special thanks to the compassionate care of Dr. James Rossetti and his staff at the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center. The world may have lost an incredible man, but Henry’s spirit lives on in each of these lives that he touched. 

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, from 12-8 p.m., at the MALOY-SCHLEIFER FUNERAL HOME, INC., 915 KENNEDY AVE., DUQUESNE, 15110, 412-466-3300, WILLIAM B. SCHLEIFER, SUPERVISOR, WILLIAM BRIAN SCHLEIFER, FUNERAL DIRECTOR. Additional visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, from 10-11 a.m., followed by a Blessing Service at 11:00 a.m., with Rev. Nick Mastrangelo, officiating. Military Honors will be held at the Funeral Home following the service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to The Stanley Marks Endowed Research Fund at Hillman Cancer Center, or join the family in raising a glass of iced tea and buying a lottery ticket.

Bruce Robert Baxter

September 16, 2022 |

By Hunter Funeral Home | Posted in: Hunter Funeral Home

Bruce Baxter, age 76, of Sharpsburg, Pennsylvania died peacefully on September 6, 2022. Bruce grew up full of potential. He attended Cornell and Bucknell Universities and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, where his favorite activity was singing in the Pitt Men’s Glee Club. Bruce was bright, engaging and kindhearted. He had an infectious personality and had many friends. However, Bruce faced great obstacles throughout his life arising from the rapid cycling version of bipolar mental illness, which was first diagnosed when he was 18 years old.  Bruce never reached his full life potential because he had to overcome not only the challenges arising from his mental illness, but also the lack of full parity of treatment for mental health, versus physical ailments. Yet Bruce accomplished a great deal. He was an outstanding salesman, wrote poetry, and had a great singing voice. Bruce loved all of his family: His late parents, Robert and June Baxter of McKeesport; his late uncle and aunt Glenn and Dorothy Fehr of White Oak; his brother Brian Baxter and his wife Margo of Pittsburgh; Brian’s three sons, Scott Baxter of New York City and Max and Mitch of Pittsburgh; his brother Brent and his wife Celeste of St. Louis, Missouri and their children; Jared Baxter of Los Angeles, CA; Grant Baxter, of St. Louis; and cousins Doug and Sue Fehr of Pittsburgh and their extended family. Bruce was especially close with his brother Brian, and the two brothers shared a lifetime bond of brotherly love.  Bruce and Brian shared many wonderful times together. Among the many treasured memories of Brian Baxter of his brother are vacations and travel (especially to Chautauqua Lake), and attendance at cultural and sports events. Bruce was a huge Steelers fan and loved to watch Steelers games with his brother. There were other times when Bruce needed assistance from his brother Brian to help him deal with numerous crises which occurred when his illness cycled into difficult terrain. Bruce also had to cope with the lack of adequate housing arrangements in the Pittsburgh area for those dealing with mental health challenges. However, Bruce never gave up. No matter how much he was knocked down, he got back up and was able to lead an extraordinary life, given the challenges that he faced. Bruce's faith also sustained him.  The family would like to thank Bruce's medical treatment team at the Benedum Geriatric Center for the compassionate medical care provided to him. Also, the family would like to thank the support staff and the consumers at Bruce's mental health support groups: Peoples Oakland and Compeer Life friends. Also, the majority of owners, administrators and personal care aides at the personal care homes where Bruce lived provided compassionate care to him. The family is grateful for the many personal care aides who assisted Bruce, who were overworked and underpaid. May we work towards a society where everyone is treated with decency and respect.  Memorial contributions may be made to PLEA, 733 South Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15221 (the umbrella organization to Compeer Life friends which is a wonderful resource for mental health consumers in the Pittsburgh area.)  Hunter Funeral Home, Inc., 1600 Coursin Street, McKeesport, PA  15132 is in charge of arrangements.  A memorial service will take place at Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church, 384 Fox Chapel Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15238 at 11:00 am on Saturday, October 8, 2022, with a reception to follow. Please RSVP for the reception to:  brianhbaxterskier@gmail.com. Finally, the family would like to relay Bruce’s favorite greeting: “May you receive all of God’s love and extend God’s love to all of those that you love.”

By James W. Shirley Funeral Home Inc. | Posted in: James W. Shirley Funeral Home

Charles F. Smith, 89, peacefully passed away on September 13, 2022 at Forbes Regional Hospital.  Born in Clarion, PA to Frances (Reinsel) and Fredrick A. Smith on April 20, 1933. Charles attended Immaculate Conception grade school and graduated in 1951 from Immaculate Conception High School. He was drafted at 18 for the Korean War and served proudly as a sergeant.  After returning to Clarion in 1955, he married his high school sweetheart Gertrude A. (Hepinger) on April 16, 1955. As written in his yearbook “Our senior class “Super-Clown” – will see the world before settling down – with that cute junior!” After marriage and two children he then continued his Catholic upbringing by going to Duquesne University and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in 1961.  Although moving to the Pittsburgh area and settling in North Huntingdon Township to raise three children, Charles maintained and treasured a lifelong connection to hometown family members and to his Clarion roots.  With his wife he manually built his dream hunting and fishing camp in the Cooks Forest area. Smith Family members have fond memories of over 60 years of family gatherings at Musket Manor. His woodworking talents are also shown in the numerous bird houses he gave to family and friends through the years.  Charles had a prestigious 29-year career as a Manufacture Representative with 3M Company. He was top producer for the surgical division in the United States many times throughout his career. As he traveled within the US, he always put his family first. His outstanding career was truly a highlight in his life – he loved what he did and was always amazed for what he accomplished - as he saw himself as an average man. He retired in 1994 and was able to spend over 20 years of the winter months with his wife fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and the waters of Pine Island Sound, FL in his boat called The Sea-Girt.  Chuck was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was a friend to everyone he met. He was known for his love of talking and sharing stories with everyone and anyone. He frequently entertained his family with groan-worthy songs and his off-beat sense of humor. Uncle Chuck was the final patriarch of his generation to the Smith family and will be deeply missed by all including numerous nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by one son, Patrick in 2017 and his brothers and sisters, Mary Alice Flick, Patricia Barr, Frances Frost, Robert Smith and William Smith.  He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Gertrude, and son, Michael (Lori) Smith of North Huntingdon and daughter, Sally Smith (Daniel) Dugo of Slippery Rock. He has seven grandsons, Daniel, Mathew (Lauren), Richard (Kylie), Andrew (Jenna), Mitchell, Luke and Charles; and seven great-grandchildren.  Friends will be received from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. Friday at the James W. Shirley Funeral Home, 176 Clay Pike, North Huntingdon, PA  15642.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday at 9 a.m. in St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, North Huntingdon.  Interment will take place on Monday at 1 p.m. in Immaculate Conception Cemetery, Clarion, PA.   In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Norwin Area Meals on Wheels.  www.shirleyfuneralhome.com
