On Tuesday April 2, 2024, Robert Ruyechan, age 91 of Pittsburgh passed away.  Son of the late Michael Ruyechan and Teresa (Matelan) Ruyechan. Beloved Husband of the late Clare (Blessing) Ruyechan.  Bob was preceded in death by his brothers Raymond Ruyechan, Michael (the late Millie) Ruyechan, and nephew Wayne Ruyechan.  He is survived by Sister-in-law Evelyn (Lazor), niece Renee Ruyechan, nephews Damian Ruyechan and Michael ( Jill ) Ruyechan, great-nephew Kadin, great Niece Chelsea Mariah Gilkey and Bob’s Beloved Significant Other Nancy Rygiel.  Bob was a Korean War Veteran, serving in the Army.  He was an engineer—a profession that allowed him to travel the world and live abroad—Venezuela, Poland and Mexico.  To know Bob was to love Bob.  He was an intelligent, honest, genuine, humorous and kind human being.  Bob loved his automobiles! Having started out driving a Thunderbird in his early days, keeping the love alive by driving a Ford Mustang in his later life (his eighties!!) and most recently driving his Lincoln SUV.  Bob was an expert marksman, having enjoyed being a longtime member of several gun clubs.

Bob’s final wish was to be privately laid to rest in Good Shepherd Cemetery, Monroeville, PA.
