Walter T. "Porky" Coll Sr., formerly of Level Green (as he was known to friends and family) died peacefully Friday, Feb. 26, 2021, at Manor Care Nursing Home, Monroeville, where he has resided since 2020. He was born April 18, 1938, in Turtle Creek, to Phillip Edward and Dorothy Golightly Coll. He was the husband of the late Barbara Aiello Coll who he married June 28, 1957. He is survived by his four children, Ron (Kathy), Tom (Kim), Shari Lasher (Larry) and Sean (Kelli). He was proud to be called PapPap by Veronica and Cassondra Coll, Amanda and Ryan Coll, Jimmy (Rachel) and Maggie Lasher and Brittany Lindbloom, and by his great-grandsons, Cyrus Vincent and Dustin Lindbloom. He is further survived by his sisters, Dorothy Coll Westover and Barbara Coll Gallagher, his brother, Robert Coll, many brothers and sisters-in-law, and many nieces and nephews. In addition to his beloved wife, Barb, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Phillip and Chuck Coll; sisters, Patricia Coll Osbourne and Loretta Coll McMenamy; and grandson, Brian Lindbloom Jr. Porky retired from the printing division of Westinghouse in Trafford with 25 years of service. He was a former PIAA basketball referee and an umpire for boy's baseball and girl's softball. To know Porky was to love him. He might make you angry, or tease you relentlessly, but he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He could name every car he ever owned (and there were a lot!), and was still asking to drive in his last days. Porky wore many hats; husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and son. He was a coach for his son's baseball teams for many years. He never shied away from work, sometimes working multiple jobs at a time to provide for his family. Per his request, pour yourself a shot of Jameson Whiskey and toast your memories of Porky. Family and friends will be received from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday in the JOHN M. DOBRINICK FUNERAL HOME INC., 702 Seventh St., (State Route 130), Trafford, 412-372-3111. A funeral liturgy will be held at 11 a.m. Friday in the funeral home with Father George Saletrik officiating. Interment will follow in the Good Shepherd Cemetery, Monroeville. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your favorite charity in Porky's honor.

I would like to give my condolences to Uncle Porky’s kids and my prayers are with all of you, I am cousin Patti ( chuck & patti’s daughter) the youngest. Sorry I couldn’t be there , my granddaughter was exposed to covid and I’m with her all the time and just playing it safe. I really wanted to say goodbye to Uncle Porky. He was my favorite and made me laugh every time we seen him. He was the best so was Aunt Barb. My daughter Kayla just would get a kick out of him! I love you Uncle Porky! Hope you all are doing okay and again sorry I wasn’t able to be there.

Rest peacefully Uncle Porky. I only met you a few times, you were always nice. Thanks for coming to pay respects when my mom passed (was it really almost 10 years ago?) May strength and Love surround all that you loved and loved you...I'm sure there are many...
