Joseph Richard Sikorski, 86, of Rostraver Twp., passed away Saturday, May 28, 2022 at Penn Highlands Health Care, Mon Valley, Monongahela. Born June 10, 1935 in Glassport, PA he was the son of the late Frank and Stella Zdobinski Sikorski. Mr. Sikorski was a faithful member of the Church of St. Anne, Rostraver Twp. and served in the US Army National Guard. Joe spent most of his childhood in Glassport, PA and nearly all of his adulthood in Rostraver, PA. Joe was helpful, respectful, and kind to his core. His determined demeanor made him well-suited for his job at Mendlowitz Trucking Company, where he deftly puzzled his way through even in the trickiest motor and engine fixes. In his early 20s, Joe styled his hair like Elvis Presley and drove a big pink Plymouth with fins on the back. He was so hot to trot that he caught the eye of his future wife, Joann Ancarana and never looked back. A study in self-reliance and resourcefulness, Joe would fix his own appliances around the house and drive himself to the hospital when injured or sick. In his spare time, Joe enjoyed working on his car, tending to his yard and going on the occasional trip to the casino with his stepson, Wade. Joe was a die-hard Steelers fan and an avid cat lover, and he was endlessly amused by the quirks of his pets over the years.
He is survived by stepson Wade B. & Vivian L. Goslicky of Finleyville, two grandchildren Jill Goslicky & husband Aaron Krebs, Michael Goslicky & wife Terria Dotson Goslicky, four great grandchildren Gavin W. Goslicky, Jolynn M. Goslicky, Grayson W. Goslicky and Idella D. Krebs, sister in law Armenia Sikorski, seven nieces and nephews Michael Sikorski & wife Angie, Frank Sikorski & wife Janet, Dr. Christopher Sikorski & wife Barbara, Patty Ann Savage, Bobby Jerome, Andy Martin, Billy Martin, seven great nieces and nephews Michael, Gavin, Nicole, Chris and Elana Sikorski, Donna and Andrea Jerome. He is preceded in death by his wife Joann Ancarana Sikorski, son Paul Sikorski, three brothers Benedict, Frank and Paul Sikorski, two sisters Agnes Jerome and Gertrude Martin, and stepson Vincent P. Goslicky.
Those who knew him sorely miss his quick, warm, glinting laugh which always filled the room.
