Joseph S Plazek 64, of Ross Township.

Beloved husband for almost forty years of Cynthia (Reinhart) Plazek.

Joe enriched the greater Pittsburgh community with his master carpentry skills, his deejay and music expertise, his dedication to the North Hills School District drama club and Assumption Theatre Guild technical theatre for over 2 decades, his willingness to share a joke even in adverse situations, and his percussion talents when he played and sang with the Catholic Folk Group The Harmony Son in the 1970’s.

    My wonderful cousin Joe was a truly great man; great in his goodness, great in his love for his family, friends, and community, great in his service, great in his talents and skills, and great company. He will be greatly missed, but he leaves behind a legacy that will last forever. May God grant him a blessed and beautiful reunion with his loved ones who went before him, and may He comfort those who are left behind, with memories of Joe. Deepest sympathies—so saddened for your loss. “Love, forever and always.”

    Joe was an amazing man. He was always so helpful. He never turned us down when we needed help with lighting for shows at the Assumption Theater Guild. I enjoyed his sense of humor, He was an expert lighting technician with many other skills. He will be missed.
