Ignatius "Frank" Strawniak, Jr., age 77, of McKeesport, died March 8, 2021. Born February 26, 1944, in New Castle, he was the son of the late Ignatius and Frances (Kachmarchic) Strawniak and the beloved husband of Barbara (Zeiders) Strawniak for 56 years.

He enjoyed bowling, trying his luck at casinos, and was captivated by volcanoes. He always cherished time spent with his children, grandchildren, and the entire family.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by daughters, Michelle (Glenn) Hoogerwerf of Cle Elum, WA, Lori (Rob) Katich, of North Huntingdon, and Kristine (Ryan) Louth, of Mendon, OH; four grandchildren, Jacob, Joshua, Madison, and Morgan and numerous "grand puppies"; sister, Arlene (Edwin) Mushalko, of White Oak; brothers, Harold Strawniak, of Port Vue, Lawrence (Kathy) Strawniak, of Mt.
