July 16, 1957 - February 4, 2022
Thaddeus Chruscik "Ted" "Juj" Age 64, of East Vandergrift, PA on February 4, 2022, passed away peacefully surrounded by loving family. Loving father of Chelsea Chruscik (engaged to Lucas Crisman), Samantha Chruscik, Carly Chruscik; grandfather of Joshua Chruscik, born in June 2021; brother of Carla Chruscik; son of Thaddeus and Anna Mae Chruscik (dc - March 29, 2003). Funeral private, a celebration of life will be celebrated in Spring 2022, contact his family for more information. Ted was an avid outdoorsman who loved to spend time in the forests of Pennsylvania. As a young man he traversed many miles of trails in our area, including the Baker Trail, and parts of the Appalachian Trail. He was blessed as a grandfather in June 2021. He was a lifelong member of Our Lady Queen of Peace Church in East Vandergrift. He solely worked in his life as a building and machinery maintenance technician for PGW, formerly PPG in Creighton, Pa. Ted was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in January of 2018 and fought the disease valiantly. Ted had the gift of being able to put a smile on the face of everyone and anyone he met. He was quick witted and could easily turn a phrase to make you grin. You could count on finding him sporting his signature Converse sneakers, with a licorice chewing stick in his mouth and a playful look in his eyes. While in health he loved to grow tomatoes from seeds and cultivate a bountiful garden. You could consider him the ultimate handyman – there was no job that couldn't be done by Ted. Special thanks to the oncology team of the AHN Cancer Institute at Allegheny Valley Hospital – specifically Dr. Gene Finley, Beth Warnick NP, Dr. Youssef Arshoun, Rochelle of Dr. Arshoun's office, and Dr. Alexander Yu of AGH.
