1936 - 2013 Obituary Condolences
Age 77, of Gibsonia, PA, Pine Township, died peacefully on Sunday, August 25, 2013. He was born on June 21, 1936, in Colver, PA to the late Peter and Julia Brenza. Bob earned his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh and was a proud graduate of Penn State University, a tradition he shared with his four children. His favorite place to be was at home, where he enjoyed roaming the park-like yard, experimenting in the garden, tracking the financial news, and following the local sports teams. Visits from his local grandson and watching his grandchildren - near and far - learn and grow also brought Bob delight. His family came to recognize the sparkle in his eye when he was setting up one of his jokes. Bob was the devoted husband of Nancy O'Donnell Brenza for 45 years; the loving father of Christy (Ed) Kosakowsky of Allison Park, Holly (Stephen) Zoog of San Rafael, CA, Robyn Brenza of Baltimore, MD, and Jim Brenza of San Francisco, CA; and the proud grandfather of four grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Pauline Smith of Ebensburg, PA; and his brother, David Brenza of Houston, TX. The family will receive friends on Thursday from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. at SCHELLHAAS FUNERAL HOME, LTD., 5864 Heckert Road, Bakerstown, PA 15007. Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday at 10 a.m. in St. Kilian Church, corner of Clark and Cherry Streets, Mars, PA 16046, with Fr. Charles Bober, celebrant. Interment will follow in Holy Savior Catholic Cemetery, Gibsonia, PA. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Kilian Parish Building Fund, 7076 Franklin Road, Cranberry Township, PA 16066.
