Steven F. Mackcoviak | 70

May 31, 1951 - February 4, 2022

Steven F. Mackcoviak, 70, of 148 Meadowlark Lane, Kersey, passed away Friday, February 4, 2022, at his residence with his family by his side, after a courageous battle with cancer for the past 21 years.

He was born May 31, 1951 in Ridgway, son of the late Michael F. and Waneta C. Shaffer Mackcoviak.  Steve was a lifelong resident of the area and was a graduate of St. Marys Area High School, Class of 1971.  He retired from Sylvania after over 40 years of service to the company.

He is survived by three daughters: Krista Gerg (Evan) of St. Marys, Stephanie King (Michael) of Castle Rock, CO, and Jessica Erickson (Joshua) of St. Marys; five grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; his former wife, Teddi Farr Mackcoviak; and by his faithful dog, Boo.

In addition to his parents, Steve was preceded in death by his dog, Sasha.

Steve was a member of the St. Boniface Church where he took great pride in being an usher for the church.  He was a member of the Wilcox American Legion and the St. Marys Moose Club.  He loved his Harley Davidsons, was an avid hunter, and was a tremendous artist-a talent and passion that he shared with his children and grandchildren.  He had an astounding wit about him and simply loved his family above anything else.

There will be no visitation.

Family and friends are invited to a Mass of Christian Burial which will be celebrated in the St. Boniface Church on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, at 10:00 AM, with the Rev. Ross Miceli, Pastor, officiating.  Burial will follow in the St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.

Memorials, if desired, may be made to the Elk County Humane Society 1029 E. Eschbach Road, St. Marys, PA 15857 or to the Hahne Regional Cancer Center, Penn Highlands DuBois, 100 Hospital Avenue, DuBois, PA 15801.

  1. Rest In Peace Steve,
    I will never forget our motorcycle rides in the 60s.

  2. I was saddened to hear of the passing of my old friend and co-worker Steve. I will always remember him as enjoyable to work with and his wit and constant smile. Steve was just good to be around and I am fortunate to have shared moments of life with him. He never let his struggle slow him down and if it did, he did not show it. I pray his loved ones will always keep the memories of Steve close to their hearts.

  3. Jessica, Krista, Steph….
    I have seen your dad struggle with his cancer for a long time now. His passing is so sad. He put up a great fight.
    He will be missed. My Sincere Sympathy to all of you and your family.

  4. With deepest sympathy to family and friends.

  5. Dad, I love you, so very much. The world lost the most funny and gentle soul. Life will never be the same. Thank you for being my dad. And soon enough, in a blink of an eye, we will all be back together, never having to part again. I love you always, old man. Always.
