With a broken heart we announce the death of Doug Krofina of Woodstock, Conn.; a devoted husband, awesome Grampa, faithful family member and trusted mentor and encourager to his legions of friends.
Born in Johnstown, in 1948, the son of the late Joseph and Josephine Krofina he died Jan. 31, 2015, after a valiant battle with melanoma.
A true native of Pennsylvania, he remained a "Terrible Towel" carrying Steelers fan and a Pitt Panther supporter.
He began his illustrious 43 year career with the Boy Scouts of America in DuBois, and concluded it as Director of Professional Development at the National Office in Texas. When not "puttering" in the yard, you would find him doing his favorite activity - splitting wood!
Doug is survived by his wife Andy; Andy's sons, Robert and Michael Serricchio and their wives; his adored grandchildren: Sabrina, Anthony and Michael Serricchio; his brother, David in Calif.; cousins: Don, Jo Jonathan and Alexis Singel, Bonnie and Greg Turner and Irene Karan, and countless other family members and friends.

Memorial donations can be made to Yale New Haven Hospital directed to Mario Sznol, MD Melanoma Research Program, PO Box 1849, New Haven, CT 06508. Doug was honored to be a part of their research.
