Francis "Fran" E. Peskorski

Feb 22, 1938 - Mar 11, 2018

          Francis “Fran” E. Peskorski, age 80, of Erie, passed away Sunday, March 11, 2018, at Fairview Manor from cancer. Born in Erie on February 22, 1938, he was a son of the late Andrew J. and Helen H. (Andrzejewski) Peskorski.

          A graduate of Academy High School in 1956, he served in the Military Police branch of the U.S. Army for two years.  Francis was employed with Erie General Electric Transportation Systems in Buildings 18 and 2 as a Quality Control Inspector in the Flexible Machining System (FMS) area of the Propulsion Division.  He retired in 2000 after 34 years of service.

          He was a member of U.E. Local 506 and St. George Catholic Church.  Fran enjoyed stamp collecting, woodworking, playing horseshoes, line dancing, golfing, fishing, and a good game of backyard hockey with Scott and his friends on the ice rink he made for them each year when they were teenagers.

          In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brothers-in-law Joseph and Alfred Paris.  Survivors include his wife of 53 years, Priscilla (Paris) Peskorski, whom he married April 18, 1964; a son, Scott Peskorski, his wife Barbara, of North Olmsted, OH; a daughter, Noelle Cassano, her husband Charles, of Erie; sister-in-law, Jeanette Paris; nieces, nephews, and several cousins.

          He was never further than a phone call away, and no challenge was too great for him to tackle for his kids, especially when he would get the panicked phone call, “Dad, you’re not going to want to hear this.”  He will be deeply missed and remain forever be in our hearts.

          The family would like to give special thanks to Susan, Lynn and Kathy from Great Lakes Hospice, for their compassionate care.

          Friends may call Thursday from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. at Brugger Funeral Homes & Crematory, 1595 West 38th Street at Greengarden Boulevard and may attend a prayer service there Friday at 10:30 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass at St. George Church at 11 o’clock.  Burial will follow in Mary Queen of Peace Cemetery.
