John William Tighe


John William Tighe, of Grove City, passed away on Monday, April 1, 2019. He was 82.
John was born in Erie and spent most of his life in western Pennsylvania, where he worked as a building products salesman before retirement.
John's unique ability to never forget a name or face naturally led to a large circle of friends with whom he remained close throughout his life.
His passions were mostly sports-related, including playing and watching golf along with rooting for anyone wearing a Black and Gold uniform.
Throughout his life, John's focus was always on his family. He married the love of his life in 1957 and was nothing less than a model father for his two children.
He was preceded in death by his father, Frederick W. Tighe; his mother, Elizabeth (Sabolski) Tighe; and his brother, Frederick J. Tighe.
He is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Susan M. Tighe, son, Brian M. Tighe; grandson, Brandon C. Tighe; daughter, Brenda J. (Tighe) Smith; and son-in-law, Timothy J. Smith.
Donations in the name of the family may be made to Butler Lutheran Senior Life VNA of Western Pa.
