Of Liberty Borough, formerly of Braddock, age 92, passed away on Thursday, May 5, 2022.

Born the son of the late Adam Wackowski and the late Anna (Bronkowski) Wackowski.

Beloved husband of the late Eileen “June” Wackowski.

Loving father of Christine Wackowski and Timothy (Lisa) Wackowski, both of Liberty Borough. 

Adored Pappy of Jessica (Andrew) Mason, Timothy Wackowski, and Haley Wackowski.

Brother of Gina Styk of California.  Preceded in death by siblings; Edmund, Alice, Eugene, and Henry Wackowski.

Also survived by nieces and nephews.

Vince was proud to have been raised in the town of Braddock.  He worked for over 30 years for Standard Metal in Braddock, where he rose through the ranks and eventually became a layout designer.  Vince was a longtime sacristan for the former St. Thomas Church in Braddock.  He volunteered as a coach for North Braddock Little League for many years and also completed volunteer work delivering food and clothing for St. Vincent de Paul as each Christmas approached.  Vince has a distinct trait for putting the needs of others before himself, especially those of his surrounding neighbors.  His fondest memory in life was the time spent with his grandchildren, who in return loved their “Pappy.”

Friends are welcome Sunday from 12-4 p.m. at Patrick T. Lanigan Funeral Home & Crematory; 700 Linden Ave. at Cable; East Pittsburgh, PA 15112; (412) 824-8800, where a Blessing Service will be held Monday at 11 a.m.
