Gregory J. Pietruch, 66, of Nesquehoning, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, May 10th at St. Luke’s Hospital, Gnaden Huetten Campus, Lehighton. Born in Coaldale, he was a son of the late John and Helen (Orlosky) Pietruch. He was a lifelong member of the community and was of the Byzantine Catholic faith. Greg was a fervent Alabama “Crimson Tide” football fan, much to the dismay of the many Penn State fans in Nesquehoning who were his friends.
Surviving are brothers Francis and wife Janice Pietruch of Perkiomenville PA, John and wife Jane of the Lake Hauto section of Nesquehoning, a sister Anna, wife of Robert Davis of Severna Park MD, and nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be private at the request of the family. Online condolences may be expressed at www.nalesnikfh.com. Services and arrangements are being provided by the Bruce A. Nalesnik Funeral Home 57 West Center St., Nesquehoning PA 18240.
