David A. Muchisko

May 23, 1946 ~ October 6, 2021 (age 75)


David A. Muchisko, age 75, of Brownsville, PA, passed away peacefully at his home on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born on May 23, 1946 in Denbo, PA, son of the late Charles and Rosella (Rockwell) Muchisko.

Dave proudly served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps. He worked as a deckhand for Mon River Towing until his retirement, at which point you could find him stirring up trouble at Mondale's Auto Sales. Although notorious for his sarcastic jokes—the kind that only he could get away with—everyone knew that Dave was so much more than just the ruthlessly funny guy in the room. He always put others before himself, and his heart was full of love, especially for his grandchildren, whom he adored. Dave also had a love for animals. Whether hunting in the woods or observing the outdoors by watching nature shows and eating peanut M&Ms on his couch, he was certainly a wildlife enthusiast. His personality was one of a kind, and most of all, he will be missed.

Dave was married to the love of his life, Gladys M. (Walters) Muchisko. Surviving, in addition to his wife, are four sons; Richard Walters and his wife Jayme and their children Abigail and Adam. Michael Walters and his wife Sabina and their children Courtney, Cameron, and Brooke. David A. Muchisko, Jr. and his son David A. III Kirk Myers and his wife Dina and their children Kayla, Kody, and Elijah. Two daughters: Tina Veatch and her husband Ed and their children Eddie, Teagan, and Savannah. Kelly Griglack and her husband Anthony and their children Cordessa and Mason. Three sisters: Joan Cimaglia, Phyllis Simyak and her husband Frank, and Lou Ann Marshall. Many nieces and nephews, cousins, hunting buddies and friends, along with his faithful companion Angel.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother-in-law Patsy Cimaglia and nephew Chad (Church) Marshall.

Friends will be received on Sunday from 2-4 and 6-8 at the Novak Funeral Home 515 Front St. Brownsville, then again on Monday, October 11, 2021 from 10-11am at which time services will be conducted at 11 am at the funeral home with Pastor Henry Frain officiating.
