Loggi, Arcangelo L.

Arcangelo Loggi December 29, 1929 - February 11, 2018 Died peacefully at home, surrounded by family, after recent years of declining health. Born and raised in Verona, PA, he was the oldest child of immigrant parents from Italy who came to America for a better life. Arcangelo (Arkie to many) was predeceased by his brother Amidio (Jean) Loggi and his sister Isabella (Albert) Adamo. They formed a strong family bond which helped them through some difficult times. He was a life long member of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Verona. Arcangelo was a multiple sport star player for Verona High School in his youth. He was a veteran of the Korean War, a skilled machinist and car repair guru who helped run Pittsburgh Crankshaft Service for decades. He was a terrific baseball coach who made a great impression on many young men. He loved gardening, particularly his tomatoes and his fig trees. He loved baseball and football, so the Pirates and Steelers were regular topics of conversation. Best of all, he was a dedicated father who encouraged all of his children to work hard, study, travel and pursue their dreams. Family was always the most important piece of his life. He was as proud of us as we were of him. Fortunately for the family, Arcangelo survived early health problems in his 40’s. He was able to retire, travel with his wife Anna, friends and family. It was a special gift to have him around to enjoy many great family events. His long life was a bonus and he treated it as such. His gentleness was special and noted by everyone who came into contact with him. He had a wonderful smile, particularly whenever dessert was around. Arcangelo is survived by his wife of 63 years, Anna, and his children Louis (Laura) Loggi, Rose (David Frost) Loggi, Laura Ann Loggi and Brittany (JC) Smith. He was blessed with grandchildren Elaine (husband Nate Mochizuki) Loggi, Brian Loggi and Ryan (wife Sara), Skyler and Kalen Smith, plus 27 nieces & nephews and many dear friends. We would like to thank his hospice team from Allegheny Health Network for the compassionate care he received. Friends and relatives will be received at the BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION & ALTERNATIVE SERVICES, INC. 421 Allegheny Ave, Oakmont PA on Thursday February 15, 2018 from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial 10 a.m. Friday, February 16, 2018, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Center Ave, Verona with Entombment to follow in Mt.
