John J. Sateach Jr.

September 19, 2018

John J. Sateach Jr., 65, of Hazle Twp., passed away Wednesday at his home.  He grew up in Beaver Meadows and was the son of the late John J. and Betty (Fisher) Sateach Sr.

John was a 1971 graduate of Hazleton High School.   He worked in roadway construction for Barletta Materials/Glasgon Inc. for most of his career, and retiring as the GM of construction.

An avid hunter, John enjoyed spending time outdoors and in the log cabin he built.  When not outside, he could be found researching, tracking down, or restoring items from any one of his wildly varied interests which included everything from vintage cars and farm equipment to hunting and fishing gear to art and antique pottery.  Naturally inquisitive and technically inclined, he never encountered something broken that he couldn’t repair.

John is survived by his wife the former, Margaret “Peggy” Maddy; stepchildren David Godumski and Sarah Chicalese; siblings Paul Sateach and Pamela D’Amato; several nieces and nephews; and his constant K-9 companion, Big Louis.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, September 26th, from 6-8 P.M. at the Joseph A. Moran Funeral Home, 229 W. 12th St., Hazleton.  Burial will be held at the convenience of the family.
