Obituary

Stephen F. Lugarich, age 69 of Mt. Vernon, passed away at home surrounded by his family on Friday, July 10, 2020.  Born April 7, 1951 in McKeesport, he was a son of the late Steve and Bessie (Pekarsky) Lugarich.  A 1973 graduate of Penn State University with a BA in Accounting, Stephen retired in 2019 as a Senior Vice President of Commercial Banking for PNC Bank.  He was also a member of Mary, Mother of God Parish (St. Patrick's Church), the CFU Lodge #146, and the Penn State Alumni Association.  His family will always regard Stephen as a kind, thoughtful, driven, honest, nurturing, and grounded man; and remember him as an artist, father, golfer, doting grandfather, and a man that we should all aspire to be.  Also, Stephen is survived by his wife Paula (LoBue) Lugarich, whom he married in 1975; his children Kristin (Kevin) Wasko of Jefferson Hills, Stephen (Kathleen) Lugarich of Alexandria, VA, and Michael (Laura) Lugarich of McCandless; his grandchildren Brayden and Madison Wasko; his sister Kathy (Dane) Yancic of Elizabeth Twp.; and also nieces and nephews.  Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by two cousins who were raised with him: Daniel and Milan Dimich.  Friends will be received in the Daniel F. Bekavac Funeral Home and Crematory, Versailles, on a limited basis on Sunday, July 12, 2020 from 2 to 4 PM and 6 to 8 PM.  Only twenty-five people will be permitted at a time; masks are required; CDC and State guidelines will be observed; and social distancing will be enforced on funeral home property.  Also due to the restrictions, Mass of Christian Burial in Mary, Mother of God Parish - St. Patrick's Church will be private for Stephen, as will his committal in Mt. Vernon Cemetery.  Memorial contributions in Stephen's name should be made to either The Intersection, 115 7th.
