John Thomas Caye
February 18, 1972 - January 13, 2023
Visitation: Monday 9:30 a.m. until time of Mass at St. Teresa of Avila Church, 1000 Avila Ct, Pittsburgh, Pa 15237 at 10:00 a.m.
John Thomas Caye, 50, of New Stanton, PA passed away on January 13, 2023.
John was a lifelong bachelor and Pittsburgher whom family and friends alike remember for his gentle spirit and willingness to lend a hand or ear to anyone in need. He grew up in Murrysville and is an alumnus of Greensburg Central Catholic H.S., and also attended Grove City College and the Univ. of Pitt-Greensburg.
John worked for many years as a physical security technology analyst at FirstEnergy in Greensburg; previously, he worked for West Penn Power and Westinghouse Electric.
Co-workers valued his caring albeit satirical manner, his proactive approach (aka West Penn style ) and his strong sense of integrity to getting the job done right the first time.
John was known for his quirky sense of humor and a love of sports cars— including his Kermit-the-frog green Mustang, and he had a resourceful talent for repairing ‘vintage’ cars with duct tape. He was a devoted fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates primarily because of his treasured memories from attending many games together with his dad and best friend, Thomas E. Caye, who died in 2014.
He is survived by his mother JoAnn, sister Jennifer (husband Christopher), and sister Susan (Guy) along with five nephews, a niece, and many cousins, aunts and uncles.
A Catholic funeral mass will be held at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish, St. Teresa of Avila Church in Ross Township on January 23, 2023 at 10 AM; Visitation at the church at 9:30 AM prior to Mass. Rite of interment will follow at Christ Our Redeemer Cemetery in the North Hills.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, a charity that was always close to John’s heart.
