George R. Datsko Sr, age 88, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on June 10, 2020, shortly after celebrating his 64th wedding anniversary. George was born in Colver, PA to George and Catherine Datsko. He married his sweetheart, Doris (Hill), also of Colver, on June 9, 1956. George & his wife moved to Akron, OH but they held fast to their Pennsylvania roots and his favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. He retired from General Tire and as a skilled machinist started his own business, Progressive Metallizing and Machine, in Akron. George was a well respected family man, the life of a party, and loved nothing more than welcoming friends and family into his home. He was a devout Catholic, served as an Usher at St. Matthew Parish for 40 years and was a member of the Knights of Columbus. He was an avid sports fan and an excellent baseball player and coach.

George is survived by his loving wife, Doris; children, George Jr. (Mary), Janis Sarver (John), Dave (Pam), Scott (Amy), Chuck; grandchildren, Erik (Kristina), Julianne Leffler (Mark), Lesli Miller, Kristin Rummer (Brian), Heather Grisham (John), Joseph (Jessica), Kelli, Sara Scheetz (PJ), Matthew, Emily, Ashley, Adam, Luke; 13 great grandchildren; sister Sophie Sydlowski.

George was preceded in death by his beloved parents and siblings; John, Mike, Mary, Ann, Pete, Steve, Rose, Julia, Kaye and Millie.
