Leroy T. Sylvania, 87, of Unity Township, passed away Friday, Dec. 3, 2021, at Excela Health Latrobe Hospital. He was born on July 16, 1934, in Sewickley, a son of the late Armundo and Edna (Muffley) Sylvania. Leroy left high school at a young age to join the Navy. Upon joining the Navy, he became a Corpsman and was attached to the Marine Corps in Korea. Prior to his retirement, he was a freight checker for Helms Express. He was involved in many clubs and committees within his community, including the Democratic Club, charitable committees at Monsour Hospital and served as the trustee for Teamsters Local 30 in Jeannette. He was the first president of the Citizens Concerned with Poverty. Along with his late wife, Lucille (Freger) Sylvania, he was the owner of the former Villagio Italian Store of East McKeesport. Post retirement, he was very active in Christopher's Pizza, which is the Sylvania family-owned business. Leroy was a family man. He enjoyed being around his children and grandchildren and was grateful to always be so close to them as he lived next door to his two sons.
