Obituary for Gary Blough

Print
Gary Eugene Blough, 83, died peacefully at home Friday evening, July 12, 2019, accompanied by his wife Frances Emma. Born May 18, 1936 to Millard and Elaine of Somerset County, Mr. Blough served in the army from 1959 - 1962 and spent much of his professional life working for Westinghouse. He was an avid fisherman, sports enthusiast, and collector.

On December 27, 1959, Mr. Blough embarked on his most significant journey when he married his loving and devoted wife Frances Younkin. After starting their family and spending time out of state, they settled in Penn Hills, PA and later established their home of 40 years. The quintessential father and family man supported his wife in raising their three sons. He would eventually become a devoted and much beloved and admired grandfather to his seven grandchildren. He would remain the stoic, stalwart, and sage patriarch of his family until his death following an extended battle with cancer.

Gary Blough is survived by his wife of nearly 60 years, Frances Emma, his sons Jeff (Debbie), Matthew, and Steven (Rebecca). He will forever be “Poppy” to 4 granddaughters, Kristin, Kathleen, Emma, and Anna, and 3 grandsons, Kevin, Gary, and John. He is also survived by his siblings Melvin (Billie), Danny (Linda), and Sharon as well as several nieces and nephews. Friends and loved ones will be received Tuesday, 2 - 4 and 6 - 9 pm at Soxman Funeral Homes, Ltd. 7450 Saltsburg Road (at Universal Road) Penn Hills, where a service will be held on Wednesday at 11 am. Entombment in Mt. Hope Cemetery.
