Louis Gerard Genito, Jr, 82, of Monroeville, passed peacefully at home on September 28, 2023. A devoted husband, father and family man, he is survived by his beloved wife of 53 years, Donna (Malkos) Genito; son, Dennis Genito; daughter, Amy McVicker (Craig McVicker); grandson, C. Ian McVicker Jr.; granddaughter, Catherine E. McVicker; sister, Karen Kosko (Ronald); sisters-in-law, Linda Genito, Carol Kregar (Edward), Debra Cuda; brother-in-law, Alex Cuda; and many loving nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Lou was preceded in death by his brother, Robert F. Genito and brother-in-law, Lawrence Malkos Jr. Lou was born on September 13, 1941 to Louis and Clara (Kushner) Genito of Duquesne, PA. After graduating high-school at the age of sixteen, he served in the United States Army, then earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering at Penn State University. He retired from Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory in West Mifflin, PA after a 30-year career. In his quiet, simple way, Lou always put his family first and shared with them his many interests, including reading, music, baseball, fishing, football, gardening, target-shooting, woodworking and a life-long fascination with science. A self-described tinkerer, Lou will be long remembered by his family for the many gadgets he invented to make life easier around the house. His favorite activity was spending time at home in his workshop working on his inventions, playing music while he worked and singing along with his clear, booming voice. Those closest to him will miss his words of wisdom, keen sense of humor and ability to bring a quick smile and laugh with one of his cleverly-turned phrases. He battled Parkinson’s disease for close to thirty years and, true to his character, he went down swinging. Friends will be received Tuesday, October 3, 2023 from 2-4 & 6-8 PM at the JOBE FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY, INC. (MONROEVILLE/PLUM CHAPEL) 445 Beatty Road, Monroeville (412-856-4747). Funeral mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, October 4 at 11 AM at St. Bernadette Church-Christ the Divine Shepherd Parish. Interment to follow at Good Shepherd Cemetery. In lieu of flowers or donations, spend some extra time enjoying your family and friends. www.jobefuneralhome.com.
