May 26, 1940 — August 1, 2021

John Edward McAnany Sr., age 81 of Washington, passed away on Sunday, August 1, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. He was born May 26, 1940 in Westland, a son of the late Edward and Jean A. Hotchkiss McAnany.

John was a graduate of Hickory High school. He began his career in the coal and steel industry working for Consol for several years. John then worked for National Steel in Weirton, WV and US Steel which was eventually bought out by Clark Labs, where he retired after many years of service to care for his mother in law and brother in law.

John never met a stranger and was known to be a social butterfly. He was always the life of the party and the last one to leave the dance floor. John enjoyed listening to Alan Jackson gospel music, traveling to the beach and was an avid Pittsburgh sports fan, watching the Pirates, Steelers and Pitt Panthers. He had a special place in his heart for animals, making animal friends everywhere he went. John was a devoted, husband, father and grandfather and cherished the time he spent with his family.

On June 27, 1970 he married Barbara Kostelich, who survives. Also left behind to cherish his memory is his son John E.
