John E. Havrilla
John Edward Havrilla, 68, of Pittsburgh, passed away suddenly Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016, in his sleep. John was born and raised in Uniontown to the late Dorothy (Piccolomini) and John Havrilla. He became a skilled carpenter and owned his own construction business for more than 35 years, building four beautiful homes for his daughters to raise their children in. He was known for his sense of humor and his absolute devotion of his life to his wife and kids. He is survived by his adoring wife of 49 years, Noreen Havrilla. His life will be forever cherished by his six daughters, Tracy (Steve) Homer, Erin (Zack) Casto, Lyndsay (Danny) Clark, Ashlee (Jeremy) Wozniak, Kristen (Stefan) Spak and Dawn Havrilla; his eight grandchildren, Jonathan Spak, Carley and Stevie Homer, Zack and Charlie Casto and Jake, Brady and Avery Wozniak; and his sisters, Doreen Havrilla and Denise Johnson. He leaves behind a family who loves him more than words can describe, and a place that will always be called home because he built it that way. Friends and family will be received from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday and from 1 to 3 and 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at SIMONS FUNERAL HOME INC., 7720 Perry Highway, Pittsburgh, PA 15237, where blessing service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday. www.simonsfuneralhome.com .
