JOHN R. BUZZY Obituary
Age 80, of Pleasant Hills, died peacefully, Monday morning, September 30, 2013, encircled by the love of his family. John is survived by his devoted wife of 55 years, Alice (Klemanski); along with his children, Alice (Mark) Maxim, John M., Catherine (Angelo) Belluccia and Anita (Jesse) Prentiss. John was predeceased by his daughter, Christine. He will be missed by his ten adoring grandchildren, Sarah, Jacob, John Harrison, Dominic, Vincent, Anthony, Elise, Natalie, Cassandra, and Vanessa; brother of David and Greg Buzzy. John attended Drexel University and Carnegie Tech, was an all-star football player, a Golden Gloves light-heavyweight boxing champ, and a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. During his over-40-year career in structural engineering, he worked as a project manager for Pittsburgh Bridge and Iron Works, the Eichleay Corporation, and was retired from Kvaerner Songer. He was the owner of JBuz Services, an engineering consulting firm. John was a faith-filled man, and an active member of St. Elizabeth Catholic Church for 53 years, where he served as a lector for many years. John was also a member of AARP, where he served as President and enjoyed many trips with his wife and friends. Despite his tough exterior, "Pap" had a huge heart and was easily moved to tears of joy.
