Leonard Benjamin Medvitz
Birth: Nov. 3, 1925
Fayette County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 18, 2007
Fayette County
Pennsylvania, USA

Leonard B. Medvitz, age 82, of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully on Sunday morning, November 18, 2007, in the Uniontown Hospital, Uniontown, Pa.

Born November 3, 1925, in Brownfield, Pennsylvania, he was the son of Andy Medvitz and Veronica Ondrus Medvitz.

Leonard was a member of Saint Mary (Nativity) Roman Catholic Church and a very devoted member of the Church Choir for many years.

He graduated from the now former South Union High School in the Class of 1943 and worked for several years at the now former A&P Grocery Store in Uniontown.

Leonard was a Veteran of the United States Marine Corps who served during World War II in the Pacific theater. He was a member of the 3rd Marine Air Group, 1st Division in Luzon Philipines and later in Peking China, working on court martial cases.

Leonard loved to sing! He was a member of The Barber Shoppers and sang with the group called "The Unaccounted Four". He was also in the church choir and at Midnight Mass each Christmas he sang "Oh, Holy Night" as a solo. He met his wife when they both sang tenor in the church choir.

He was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan and collected coins as a hobby, and his vegetable garden was second to none.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sisters, Helen Gushura, Trudy Walker, and brothers, Jake and Elmer.

Leonard is survived by his beloved wife of 57 years, Dorothea J. Petruska Medvitz; his loving and devoted children: Diane L. Medvitz of Syracuse, New York, Richard A. Medvitz and his wife, Joyce E., of Uniontown, Pa., Marie Medvitz and her husband, Wayne Wyant, of Pittsburgh, Pa., Jeanne Zell and her husband, Jerry, of Parkersburg, West Virginia, and John Medvitz of Uniontown, Pa. He is also survived by his grandchildren, whom he adored: Richard B. Medvitz and his wife, Laura, Ryan Medvitz, Melanie Medvitz, Katrina Zell, Renee Zell, Andrew Zell and Craig Zell; several loving nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.
