Richard J. Hornak Obituary
Richard John Hornak, 89, died Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019. He was born July 4, 1929, in Pittsburgh, son of the late John J. and Anna M. Hornak. He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Agnes H. (Kuchel) Hornak; his twin daughters, Marcie Reese (Barry) and Cheryl Saylor (Michael); and grandchildren, Christopher (Dana), Claire, Dylan (Anastasia) and Evan; and one great-grandson, Axel. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Dr. Robert A. Hornak. Richard proudly served in the Navy and graduated from Duquesne University. For most of his working years, he was employed by Westinghouse as an industrial engineer. He was an avid outdoorsman enjoying both hunting and fishing. The Lake Erie family cottage brought him great joy for more than 50 years. He spent every summer weekend there with his Crooked Creek family of friends and called it the "most beautiful place on earth."
