DJ spent his entire, and very successful, career working at U.S. Steel, first as an engineer with the American Bridge division, and ultimately retiring as the Tubular Products Manager. He was a renaissance man and had many passions, including painting, model railroading, golfing, woodworking, running, rooting for his Pittsburgh sports teams, biking, tai chi, vacationing in North Litchfield Beach, SC, and volunteer work (Meals on Wheels and Auberle). DJ is survived by his beloved wife of nearly 50 years, Sandy; along with his children, Hayley Jameson Napotnik of Wexford, PA (husband, Gary Napotnik) and D.
