On Friday, September 18, 2020, Steve Grahek, 96, of Grindstone, PA passed away peacefully at the age of 96 at Anna Lisa Personal Care Home.
Steve was born on July 18, 1924 in Brownsville, PA to Frank Grahek and Helen (Marcus) Grahek.
On April 8, 1948, Steve married the love of his life, Hazel (Redman) Grahek. They enjoyed 66 wonderful years together in their home in Braznell.

Steve was proud to be a veteran of the Army in World War II. He was a retired coal miner and an accomplished welder. Steve had a passion for repairing things - there wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix! He was very proud of his Croatian heritage and his home was always filled with tamburitza music. He enjoyed having coffee with his buddies in the mornings and going to the flea markets on Sunday.
Steve’s proudest accomplishment was his family. His wisdom, selflessness, unconditional love, sense of humor, and kind heart will be forever remembered by them.
