Joseph J. Havranek, Jr.

October 2, 1954 ~ July 18, 2022 (age 67)


Joseph J. Havranek Jr., loving father, grandfather, brother, and friend, passed away on Monday July 18, 2022 in UPMC East Monroeville, at the age of 67.  Joe was born on October 2, 1954 a son of the late Joseph Havranek Sr. and Emma (Bortot) Havranek.  Joe graduated from Greensburg Catholic High School. 

Always ready with a joke and a smile for family and friends, Joe was loved by many and will be missed. Joe will also be remembered as the White Valley/Export Santa Claus for many years.  Outside of his family there were fewer things he was more excited about than arriving on the caboose or fire truck and throwing out candy to the kids waving in the crowd.

  He is survived by his three children; Sarah (Matt) Cunningham, Brandon (Bonnie) Havranek, Mat-the-W (Kelly) Havranek and four grandchildren Greta, Patrick, Lucas and Ethan; siblings Debbi (Serif) Ulusoy, Pam (Joe) Farris, John Havranek, and Christine Highsmith; as well as nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date. WOLFE-VON GEIS FUNERAL HOME, INC., Export is assisting the family with funeral arrangements. To offer online condolences, please visit
