Of the Summer Hill section of Pittsburgh, on February 11, 2016, as he approached his 99th birthday. Beloved husband and soulmate of the late Teresa (Weiherer) Reljac; loving father of Peggy (Mark) Lisac of Gibsonia, Terri (Ben) Sirianni of Glenshaw, Joe (Claudia) Reljac of Wexford, Janice (the late Richard) Hoffman of Shaler, Ted (Lill) Herr of California. Survived by 14 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and three great-great- grandchildren; beloved uncle to numerous nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by a granddaughter, Sharon Herr. Now joyfully reunited with Teresa and his twin, Joseph. Charlie, as he preferred to be known, was a proud veteran and one of six siblings to serve during World War ll. While he endured tragedy during the war including the loss of his twin brother, he always had a funny story involving his experiences in North Africa and Italy. Born on Pittsburgh’s Northside, Charlie knew someone wherever he went. Many of his friends met him through his work. A gifted mechanic and craftsman, his skill in auto body repair was always in demand. When the Chevy Corvette was introduced to the public, he was the first in the area to be certified to repair the fiberglass vehicle. Later in life, his association with veterans remained important. He participated in many veteran related events, his favorite being multiple trips to the WWll memorial in Washington, DC including the dedication in 2004. His family is grateful to the Veterans Administration’s Day Care Center in Aspinwall, the Veterans Breakfast Club and Comfortkeepers for the kindness, respect and opportunities provided to Charlie. Friends received Monday from 2-8 p.m. at DEVLIN FUNERAL HOME, INC., 806 Perry Hwy., Ross Twp. Mass of Christian Burial in Incarnation of the Lord Parish, Tuesday 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Charlie’s name to the Veterans Breakfast Club, 200 Magnolia Place, Pittsburgh, PA 15228.
