Joseph (Joe) Rozmus, 92, of Burgettstown, passed away quietly and peacefully on Monday night November 30, 2020 surrounded by his family.
He was born in Slovan, PA to Matthew and Frances Bonk Rozmus on January 23rd 1928. Joe was a 1946 graduate of Union High School. He married his wife, Ina Foulk, on September 18, 1954.

Joe was a life-long member of Burgettstown Presbyterian Church, faithfully serving his church for over 50 years as an Elder. His daily commitment to Christ was reflected in every fiber of his character.

A lifelong handyman, Joe enjoyed tinkering around in his garage, woodworking, camping and tending to his garden. He especially loved spending time with his wife Ina, his two sons, and his two grandsons. Joe was a most gentle, kind, and steadfast man who faithfully and fearlessly offered himself to his family, friends and community.
