Richard A. Trusik, age 68, of West Hickory, PA, formerly of Allison Park, PA, died on Saturday, January 9, 2021, at his home in West Hickory.

He was born September 14, 1952, in Natrona Heights, PA, son of the late George and Irene (Soback) Trusik.

Rich worked for Wise Potato Chips out of Pittsburgh where he worked as District Manager in Distribution, and also worked for a short time for Gibbles when he retired. Because of his love of fishing, hunting, and the outdoors, he decided to spend his retirement in West Hickory and moved there several years ago.

He is survived by a brother, George G. Trusik of Pittsburgh, PA; a sister, Daralyn T. “Dink” Smith and her husband Earle Smith III of Mercer, PA; two nephews, Earle Smith IV of Washington, DC, and Elliot M. Smith of Dayton, Ohio.
