Gasparich, Mark M.




Mark M. “Marko” Gasparich, 70, a lifelong Oakmont resident passed away unexpectedly at home on Friday evening, January 12, 2018. Beloved Son of Matilda “Tillie” (Kaus) Gasparich and the late John Gasparich. Dear Brother of Diane (Jack) Singer, Joanne (Robert) Pica, Peter (Stephanie) Gasparich, and Stephen (Deborah) Gasparich. He is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Marko was a man who loved his family above anything else. He spent his formative years taking care of his many family members. He was very generous with his support to make sure everyone had a good life. Proudly serving our country in the Army during Vietnam as a medic, he learned to give the best “buzzed” haircuts. Working as a grounds keeper for the Oakmont Country Club, he had 30 years of service where he would take his nephews to work during the summer inspiring their love of the game, not to mention all of the US Open merchandise and tickets he supplied his family with. Marko opened his home and his heart to anyone who wanted to stop by for a beer, a talk, or to listen to polka. His love for model trains brought his family excitement during the holidays. He enjoyed gardening, especially his killer tomatoes. Marko worked at the former Gasparich Market, delivering groceries to many in the surrounding areas. Also a member of St. Irenaeus Catholic Church, he was a kind and gentle soul who was loved by many. Friends and relatives will be received on Monday, January 15, 2018 from 3-8 p.m. at the BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION & ALTERNATIVE SERVICES, INC. 421 Allegheny Ave. Oakmont. Mass of Christian Burial Tuesday, January 16, 2018, 11 a.m. St. Irenaeus Catholic Church. Interment will follow in the Verona Cemetery, Oakmont. Donations may be made in his name to the VA Aspinwall, 1010 Delafield Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15215
