Gerald Thomas Feltenberg, Jr., 69, of Economy, formerly of West Aliquippa, passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of his wife and family on August 15, 2012, after a long and courageous battle with Cancer.

A 1961 graduate of Aliquippa High School, he was loyal to his town and loved everything ‘Red and Black.’ After high school, Jerry joined the United States Navy and proudly served his country. He worked for Arco Chemical Company for 15 years before retiring from John Michael Martino, Inc. after 23 years as a Heavy Equipment Operator, a career he truly loved.
