Joseph Kopac Obituary

On Tuesday, March 2, Joe embraced the Lord and entered through the gates of heaven. Born in Ambridge, PA, March 12, 1927, he was the son of the late Nikola and Mary Kopac. He was preceded in death by five brothers, Nick and George Kopac, Steve, Andrew, and Michael Bosnak, and six sisters; Daisy Kopac, Helen (Bosnak) Nestor and Ann (Bosnak) Nestic, Catherine (Bosnak) Yerzyk, Barbara (Bosnak) McCauley and Mary (Bosnak) Zimmerman. He served our country during World War II in the US Army and was a member of Baden American Legion Post 641. He enjoyed fishing, gardening, and a warm day sitting on the porch. As a young boy, his picture was taken on the streets of Ambridge in an article featured in Life magazine that is currently hanging at the National Archives in Washington, DC. Everybody knew him as “Putsy” for his self-taught ability to fix anything and everything. For all his accomplishments, nothing compares to his love and devotion to his wife of 73 years, Jean (Wrotny) Kopac, sons Joseph (Linda) Kopac, and John Kopac, daughters, Kathy Pruszenski, Carolyn (Jim) Migliore, MaryAnn (Dino) Zegarelli, and Georgette Kopac (Tony), nine grandchildren, Joe and Mike Pruszenski, Renee Migliore, John, Lory, and Julie Zegarelli, Joey Kopac and Greg Murgenovich and Jason Murgenovich (deceased) and thirteen great grandchildren. We will all miss him deeply.
