Joseph Eugene Bianchi, 80, of McDonald, PA was reunited with his beloved wife Donna on the morning of September 6, 2018, at Townview Health and Rehabilitation Center in Canonsburg, PA following a brief illness.
Joe was born July 28, 1938, in Washington, Pennsylvania, the only child of the late Joseph and Roseline (Fuller) Bianchi of Bulger, Pennsylvania.
Joe was a 1956 graduate of Union High School, and a 1960 graduate of Davis and Elkins College as well as a brother of the Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity. He served in the United States Air Force from 1961 until 1967. From 1969 until 1983, Joe was the owner of Bianchi Chevrolet Oldsmobile in McDonald, PA, and later worked for Thomsic Oldsmobile Cadillac until his retirement in 2006.
On July 21, 1962 Joseph Eugene Bianchi married Donna Kay Wagner of Sturgeon, and spent 55 years as her loving and devoted husband. Together they created a family rooted in love, kindness, and generosity. Joe was his family’s rock, their safe place, and by far everyone’s greatest supporter. He loved without boundaries, supported without question or judgement, and inspired us all to be as kind, selfless, and compassionate as he was every day. He was a dedicated father, and a doting grandfather and great grandfather, who took pride in his family’s accomplishments, no matter how small. He loved nothing more than watching his grandchildren and great grandchildren grow and play, and took every opportunity to show them all the love and encouragement he could. He always had a friendly smile or word and was magnanimous in a way that will make him missed by everyone that knew him.
Surviving are a daughter, Tracy (John) Werhel of Burgettstown; a son, Joseph (Kim) Bianchi, Jr. of McDonald; 7 grandchildren, Trista (Ben) Snatchko, Bill (Kylee) Craig, Joseph (Emily) Bianchi, Adam Werhel, Bryce Craig, Kristina Bianchi, and Jordan Bianchi; 6 great grandchildren Lorelei, Waylon, Alivia, Henry, Charlee, and Annika; sister-in-law, Dessie (Joseph) Almady of McDonald; a nephew Keith (Darcy) Almady and their children; brother-in-law Richard (Helen) Wagner and their family.
