Paul M. Pecharko, 92, of Kylertown died on Saturday, May 23, 2020 at his home.

He was born on April 11, 1928 in Boardman, PA, a son of the late Michael and Susan (Bollins) Pecharko.

Mr. Pecharko owned and operated Paul's Garage in Kylertown, PA for more than 50 years. While helping everyone with their autos was his first love, he enjoyed building relationships. Relationships were not limited to his work as a mechanic, Paul valued the friendships he made throughout the community. Even though his garage was his domicile of work, it soon became a place of social gathering for many old and new acquaintances that he made over the years. If Paul was not seen working on vehicles, one might have observed him repairing a bicycle for one of the neighborhood children. A child would not only walk away with a bike that was as good as new, but also, be indulging in an ice cream or candy treat straight from Paul’s Garage.

If you drove past Paul’s Garage on a quiet day, one might see Paul tinkering with his 1937 Ford, or simply puttering in his beloved garage. Paul also enjoyed working in his yard and going to hunting camp.

He was a member of St. Agnes Catholic Church, Morrisdale where he was a third-degree member of the Knights of Columbus. Mr. Pecharko was a US Air Force veteran, serving in World War II. He was a lifetime member of the Frenchville VFW.

Paul’s family wish to thank the many people, who cared for him, his in-home caregivers, Marilyn Anderson and Deb Barrett, and home nursing caregivers, especially Yvonne McLaughlin. In addition to these special people, the family thanks the neighbors and friends who kept a watchful eye on Paul and aided in his needs.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Mary L. (Hartle) Pecharko on September 9, 2010. Paul and Mary wed July 29, 1950 at St. Severin's Catholic Church, Drifting, PA. He was also preceded in death by a son, Paul Gary Pecharko; three sisters, Agnes, Margaret, and Catherine; and three brothers, Edward, Albert, and George.

He is survived by his daughter, Gail Sabol and husband William of Shady Acres, Morrisdale; three sisters, Mary Zelensky of Morrisdale, Loretta Howe and husband Jim of Kylertown, and Dorothy Hoover and husband Robert of Morrisdale; and numerous nieces and nephews who were very special to him.

Mass will be private with interment following in the Saint Agnes Cemetery, Morrisdale.

Family and friends are invited to a viewing on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 from 2-6 PM at Paul’s Garage located at 424 Old Route 53, Kylertown, PA. 16847. Visitors are welcome to drive past, or stop and park in the parking lot to say “Farewell” to their friend. Anyone visiting must observe social distancing, wear facemasks and refrain from lingering and gathering in groups. Please limit your time at the garage, to allow time for everyone stopping by.

The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to: Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals 275 21st Street, Clearfield, PA, 16830 or Happy Valley Animals in Need, 1847 Tyrone Pike, Philipsburg, PA. 16866, or to a charity of their own choosing.

Paul was a great businessman, a fantastic neighbor, and an even better person. It was a privilege to work for him, to learn from him, and he was very patient with us as the neighborhood kids. Mary and Paul were great people to grow up next to. You will be missed, Paul. My deepest sympathies to Gail, his sisters and the rest of the family. Drew Jozefik

My father, Bob Kirk , started a garage business on the site of Paul's Garage approx. 1923. He sold the garage to Paul in 1960. It was the best thing he could have done ! Paul has been a great friend and business man to Kylertown and others for 50 years! I very much liked and admired Paul for his friendship and success and loved to visit with him. He wAS ONE OF THE " good people"
WE WILL MISS HIM! Tom Kirk 388 Grassflat Ave., Morrisdale, PA 16858

I am truly honored to have him as my uncle. I regret not seeing him as often as I should or could have. But when I did, it brought great joy to him. I recall a personal one on one conversation we had together when I was a youth. Eric, he said, when I looked into your eyes I see your mother [his late sister Catherine]. That is why I smile when I see you. I never forgot that to this day. During my last visit, I constantly pointed toward my eyes and his face would light up. Uncle Paul is now in God's care and has reunited with all rest of the Pecharco Family. Eric

Gail Sabol Posted at 08:57am

Eric, We will never forget last Summer when you came to visit us. When Dad saw you he was so emotional. Bringing back a lot of memories. He talked about you often and about seeing you last Summer. So glad you came. Stay in touch.
