George Sapko

George Sapko, 98, of Stockdale, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013. A son of the late Joseph and Anna Biersock Sapko, he was born April 13, 1914, in Stockdale. Mr. Sapko was a member of Holy Ghost Byzantine Catholic Church in Charleroi. Before his retirement in 1975, he worked as a chipper in the billet yard for Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel, Allenport Plant. Mr. Sapko liked to shoot pool and would often go to the personal care homes in the 5-Town area to visit and share a smile with the residents.
