On October 11, 2023, Douglas Wayne Stefanko, died peacefully surrounded by his family at the age of 85. Beloved husband for almost 63 years of his wife, Marjorie (Steponic); devoted father of his daughters, Christine Mikita (Jeffrey) and Tracy Tinnemeyer (James), and grandchildren Alexander and Rachel Mikita and William and Ann Tinnemeyer. He was predeceased by his parents, Stephen and Josephine Stefanko and survived by his brother, Eric Stefanko (Margaret), as well as other loving relatives.
Originally from Masontown, PA, he grew up in Oakland where he loved to sit in the trees to watch the Pirates play at Forbes Field or fish in Panther Hollow Lake. He attended St. Regis Catholic Church and Central Catholic High School from which he graduated in 1956 and entered the US Navy, stationed on the USS Borie. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh and pursued a successful career in accounting.
Doug will be remembered for his humor and generous love of family. He and Margie raised their daughters in McCandless, but recently moved to Mt. Lebanon to be near grandchildren. Doug had a way of making each grandchild feel special, playing football or baseball in the backyard, teaching them to fish, waving a Terrible Towel for the Steelers or cheering for Pitt.
