Bobby, Michael “Didi”-89, Patton, went to be with the lord on November 10, 2015 at Conemaugh Miners Medical Center. Born March 18, 1926 in Saint Boniface, son of John and Helen (Bacha) Bobby. Preceded in death by parents; brothers, John and Albert; and sisters, Mary Anderson, Margaret Sarama, Elizabeth Kosicki, and Ann Skrenta. Survived by wife of 62 years, Elizabeth “Betty” (Shimko); children, Michael John, Carrolltown; Bernadette Yeager, and husband Kenneth, Hastings; Joseph, and wife Karen (McDonald), Bowie, MD; Daniel, and wife Nancy (Konik), Hanover, PA; Stephen, and wife Lori (Westrick), Patton; David, and wife Lucy (MacDonald), Ridgeway; and Catherine Civiello, and husband William, Clearfield. Survived also by grandchildren and great grandchildren: Brian Bobby, and wife Kelly (Ava, Austin, and Aubree) of North Huntingdon, PA; Jonathan Bobby, and wife Janet (Magdeline, Jacob, and Addison) of Ebensburg, PA; Stephanie Buck, and husband Derek, of Pittsburgh, PA; Megan Winslow, and husband Travis, of Patton, PA; Nathan Yeager, and wife Karey, of Mars, PA; Kevin Bobby of Bowie, MD; Melissa Bobby of Washington, DC; Amanda, Lauren, and Evan Bobby of Patton, PA; Matt, Luke, Grace, Charlie, and Steven Bobby of Ridgeway, PA; and Damien, Joshua, and Brooke Civiello. Also survived by sister, Alyce Plucinsky of New Jersey; as well as many nieces and nephews. Mike was an Army veteran of World War II. He worked 14 years at Eastern Gas & Fuel and over 38 years at Barnes & Tucker Coal Company. He was a member of First Catholic Slovak Union, and also a member of the American Legion in Patton. He was an avid hunter and gardener, sharing his annual bountiful harvests with many family members and friends. He loved working with wood, and was well known for his hand-carved utensils, unique furniture, and toys for the grandchildren. Mike was known as Mr. Fix-it, and he saved everything; family and friends knew where to go when they were looking for that hard to find item. Family will forever miss Didi’s homemade specialties: pierogi, beef soup with homemade noodles, sauerkraut, haluski, Easter cheese, and decorating eggs with him. Mike will forever be remembered as a hard-working, loving, and devoted husband and father. We will greatly miss his keen wit, sharp intellect, and total love of family. Family and friends will be received from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8p.m. on Thursday at the Easly-Hindman Funeral Home in Hastings, PA, with Parastas during the evening visitation on Thursday. Panachida service will be held at the funeral home at 10 a.m. on Friday, followed by funeral liturgy at 11 a.m. at SS Peter and Paul Byzantine Catholic Church, 516 Palmer Avenue, Patton. Interment will be at SS Peter and Paul Byzantine Catholic Cemetery, Patton. Military Honors will be provided by the Patton VFW Post #779. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Mike’s memory to SS Peter and Paul Byzantine Catholic Church, 516 Palmer Ave. Patton, PA.
