Camer J. Costa

d. September 8, 2010

Camer J. Costa, 92, formerly of Monessen and Dunlevy, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010. A son of the late Joseph and Theresa (Trappon) Costa, he was born Sept. 23, 1917 in Monessen. A World War II veteran, he proudly served in the U.S. Army. As the war ended, he had the opportunity of celebrating V-E Day in Paris. After 33 years of employment, Mr. Costa retired from Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel, Monessen Plant, where he worked for many years on the chipping beds. He was a member of Epiphany of Our Lord Roman Catholic Church, American Legion Post 28 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1190, all in Monessen. He was an avid Steelers fan, enjoyed going to McDonald's for coffee where he and his friends would try and solve the world's problems, playing the lottery, and loved red Chevy's - especially Impala's. Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 60 years, Virginia (Caputo) Costa; two daughters, Emilene Martinak and husband Charles of Perryopolis, and Patty Regal and husband Ronald of Sayre, PA; four grandchildren, Charles Martinak III and wife Janet, Deborah Sauritch and husband Brian, Michele Bair and husband Gene, and Trina Curcio and husband Chris; three great-grandchildren, Robbie Novakovich, Gene Michael Bair, and Emi Curcio; two sisters, Rose Huweart and Theresa Kirk; and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by a daughter, Donna Spadafore (Sept. 5, 1975); five brothers, Jasper, Frank, Tony, Tom, and Joe Costa; and two sisters, Josephine "Pepino" Bono and Lena Nobili. Friends will be received on Friday, Sept. 10, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. in the Melenyzer-DuBarr Funeral Homes and Cremation Services, Inc, 825 Fallowfield Ave., Charleroi, where a funeral service will be held Saturday, Sept 11, at 10 a.m. with Fr. David Nazimek officiating. Interment will follow in Grandview Cemetery in Monessen. American Legion Post 28 will conduct a military service at 7 p.m. on Friday.
