John Joseph Aheimer
April 22, 1937 – December 3, 2019
Jack "Pap" Aheimer, age 82, passed away on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 after a long hospital stay even duct tape couldn't fix.
Son of the late William & Carolyn (Nosseck) Aheimer, he is survived by his devoted wife of 59 1/2 years Shirley Ann (Kuna) Aheimer; loving children Jacqueline (Ken) Stadterman, John (Cynthia) Aheimer, Glenn (Kelly) Hayward, Diana (Michael) Baca, Katherine (Donald) Duritza, Tim Aheimer and Charlotte (David) Sutton; 14 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren; and by many nieces and nephews. Jack was also preceded in death by siblings Frank Ulrick, Caroline Ulrick, William G. Aheimer II, Annette Phillips and Don Snyder.
Jack grew up in Millvale and spent his whole life in the family home. He was a Millvale fireman for many years and always let the grandkinds blow the horn of the ladder truck. Jack loved to hunt and spent many days at the camp in Tionesta with family and friends. Jack was a simple man who enjoyed drinking a cold beer, telling a corny joke, playing a game of shuffleboard, and talking proudly about everything the kids and grandkids accomplished. The family would like to thank the many doctors and nurses from the ICU on floors 3 and 4 at Mercy Hospital for the awesome care and kindness they showed to Jack and the family.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Tuesday at 10 AM in Holy Spirit Church, Millvale. Interment will follow in St. Anthony Cemetery, Shaler Twp.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Jack's memory to the Millvale Volunteer Fire Company or Holy Spirit Church.
