Bernard J. "Bernie" Rusinko, 71, of Greensburg, loving husband and father, passed away peacefully Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018, at home, surrounded by his beloved family. Bernard was born July 6, 1947, in McKeesport, to John and Anna (Reese) Rusinko. Bernard was a pilot, he loved to fly. He was an avid car enthusiast and he truly enjoyed working on the family farm. More than anything, he loved his family and spending time with "his girls." He was known for his sense of humor and giving nature. Bernard had a huge, loving heart and was always willing to help anyone in need. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Bernice Waddle. Bernard is survived by his beloved wife of 43 years, Janice Lee (Garcia) Rusinko; daughters, Jamie Rusinko (Michael Ernesty), of Blairsville, and Jana Winslow (Royce Winslow), of Greensburg; goddaughter, Denise Waddle; and a number of nieces and nephews. Bernard was the very proud grandfather of Juliette Rusinko.
