Obituary of Eugene “Gene” Horcholic

Of Murrysville, age 74, on Thursday September 17, 2015.

Gene was the beloved husband and best friend of Diana DeStefano for 47 years;

Loving father of Dana (Jerry) Chismar of Eastmont, and Leah (Fiancé, Rome Cross) Horcholic of Plum;

Cherished brother of Elsie (the late Lou) Caputo of Swissvale, and Dolores (Fritz) Hoffman of Livingston, NJ;

Endearing uncle to many nieces and nephews.

Gene was the son of Joseph and Anna Horcholic and is preceded in death by his late sister Dorothy Nutz.   

Gene was an electrician for over 45 years and a member of the Local #5, Electrical Union (IBEW). He lived a very generous and charitable life. He was especially prideful of his Slovak heritage and enjoyed a good polka. Gene had a great love for others and was very family oriented.
