Waldbaum, Alfred G. 82

  • Elizabeth
  • Died: 2014-04-16
  • Funeral Home: Bekavac, Clairton | Get Directions
  • Alfred George Waldbaum, 82, of Elizabeth, passed away Wednesday, April 16, 2014. He died of heart failure where he chose to be, in the home he, our mother, and we all shared in Elizabeth. His wish came true to remain there peacefully until the end, passing on to be with our mother, who left us 10 years ago, March 3, 2004. He insisted on doing things his own way, trying to cure himself naturally, living a full independent, healthy life as best he could until the end. He enjoyed the outdoors more than anything, hiking through Ligonier, his favorite spot in Pennsylvania, and strolling through White Oak Park. He drove us all crazy at times with his stubborn, contentious and odd ways, but we loved him regardless. He was a smart, determined and advantageous man, assuring his children would continue to prosper long after he was gone. We are grateful for all he has done for us, and he will truly be missed by each and every one of us. He will live in peace now with our mother, his parents, his four older siblings and his grandson, Jerid, and all who passed many years before him. He leaves behind his children, Laurie Lynn Pasquino, Beth Ann D'Acierno, Tracey Lynn Demarco, Heide Beatriix Waldbaum and son, Eric Alfred Waldbaum, along with his 10 grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. "We love you, Dad." Funeral visitation and services are private at the request of the family. Funeral arrangements are by DANIEL F. BEKAVAC FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORY, 4504 Walnut St., Versailles, PA 15132 (412-678-3454). http://www.bekavacfuneralhome.com. Memorials in Alfred's name should be made to the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, 1801 Willamette St., Suite 200, Eugene, OR 97401.
