October 8, 1957 - October 3, 2021

Michael S. Murgash, 63, of 124 Weld Cemetery Road, Coalport, and formerly of St. Marys, passed away unexpectedly, Sunday, October 3, 2021, at his residence.

He was born October 8, 1957, in St. Marys, son of the late Stephen and Donna Armanini Murgash. Mike grew up in Kersey, was a graduate of St. Marys Area High School, Class of 1975, and was a graduate of Penn State University. After college, Mike moved to California for several years and returned back to the area in 1995. He was self-employed as a contractor, specializing in concrete work.

He is survived by two sons, Gary Murgash (Amy) and Jay Murgash (Shannon) both of Clearfield; three grandchildren: Wesley, Joey, and Jet; one sister: Marlene Stubber (David) of St. Marys; his girlfriend: Darlene Gregiore of Coalport; and by four nieces and nephews: Stephanie Distler (Andrew), Franchesca Herzing (Eric), Justin Stubber (Rachel), and Scott Stubber.

Mike enjoyed his work. He was proud of his accomplishment to be named the number one concrete contractor in the State College area. He was a hard worker but would always have time for his family, especially his grandchildren. He pulled for the Raiders and was a true Penn State fan.

  1. Mike was like a brother to me, especially during the 80s. First person I met out of college in Danbury when we went to orientation together. Played ball, judo and spent a lot of fun times together. Mike followed me to CA in early 80s where we roomed together for a number of years enjoying the beach, volleyball and softball. We stood up with each other at our weddings and I’m still in shock after hearing of his passing this morning. My deepest heartfelt condolences to his family and girlfriend. R.I.P. Murgy!!

  2. Mike was a great guy. So very sorry to hear about his untimely passing. No matter where you saw him he’d take the time to stop and talk. My deepest heartfelt sympathy to his entire family.

  3. Marlene, so sorry for your loss. May his soul Rest In Peace. May you and your family find peace.

  4. So very sorry for your great loss Darlene!! May God comfort you in this time of sorrow. In God’s word it says, God draws near to the broken hearted. Condolences also to the rest of the family…

  5. Mike was such a hard worker but enjoyed his work. I will remember him for the love of his sons and grandkids! He was so proud of them and enjoyed spending time with them. He was taken way to young.

  6. Sending heartfelt condolences to Mike’s family and friends. It was great to visit with Mike at our August class reunion. He will be missed by his SMAHS Class of ‘75. RIP Mike
