Proud Veteran and Avid Fisherman
Ronald Leonard Teorsky, 71, of McKean, died Thursday, July 17, 2014, in the loving and exceptional care of the Erie VA Medical Center. He was born in New Kensington, Pa., on July 4th (POW), 1943, the son of the late Casmere and Veronica (Kaczkowski) Teorsky.
He was a graduate of Ken High and was a loyal employee of GE, where he worked as a tester for 32 years.
Ron proudly served four years in the Navy, aboard the USS Constellation. Throughout his lifetime, he was a member of the Fairview American Legion Post 742, Edinboro-McKean VFW
, Siebenbuerger Club, Sunflower Club, Polish National Alliance, St. Francis Xavier Parish of McKean, and the Moose Club
in Zephyrhills, Florida. Ron loved to hunt, fish, play jokes on others, and attend parties.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Linda M. (Hudak) Teorsky, whom he missed dearly since her passing in 2008. He was also preceded in death by his brothers, Robert and Stanley Teorsky; and most recently by his beloved sister-in-law, Marilyn (Hudak Barker). He is also joined in heaven by many friends, family, and fishing buddies.
Survivors include four daughters, Marylynn Lebec-Campbell (Jeff) of Oakdale, Pa., Sueann Wiest (Shawn), of McKean, Pa., Kelly Yurasko (Andrew) of Mt. Dora, Fla., and Erin Bruner (Tom) of Homer City, Pa.; and a sister, Loretta (Teorsky) Beresik (Francis) of Natrona Heights, Pa. However, he was most proudly known as Pappy Ron to Jack and Rachel Kaulis, Nick and Lindsay Wiest, Sydney Lebec-Campbell, Brooklyn and Baby Campbell, Lauren, Allison, and Luke Bruner, and Abigail and Baby Brother Yurasko. Ron was so happy to have "Pappy's Dozen." He will also be sorely missed by his good friends, the Barneys, Kelleys, and Winnetts.
