Dennis E. Falcsik, 97, of Irwin, Rolling Hills, died Tuesday, June 14, 2022, surrounded by his family. He was born Feb. 10, 1925, in Swissvale, a son of the late Andrew and Rosalia (Pongracz) Falcsik. Dennis was a proud veteran of World War II, having served in the 17th Airborne, 194th GIR. Over the years, he and his wife enjoyed attending the "Thunder From Heaven" 17th Airborne Division reunions. He was a member of the VFW Post 781 in Irwin. He attended St. Edward Roman Catholic Church in Herminie and was a member of the Altar Rosary Society. He loved to volunteer at the annual church picnic, often running the chuck-a-luck wheel. Prior to his retirement, he was a meat department manager for 37 years at A&P, and later worked at Shop N Save in Jeannette. Golf was one of his passions. He played for many years with the St. Edward Golf League, and later with the Valley Green Senior Men's League, astounding his partners by shooting one over par at the age of 90. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Virginia R. Seybert (2003); eight brothers, Frank, Tony, Andy, Albert, Steve, John, Ernest and Elmer Falcsik; and two sisters, Marion Onaida and Margaret Veres.
