David Daniel Olejarz, age 76 of Butler PA, formerly of Pittsburgh, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, January 18, 2020. He was born June 17, 1943 in Pittsburgh and was preceded in death by his parents, Lawrence Olejarz, Sr. and Helen Barylska and his only brother, Lawrence, Jr. He is survived by the love of his life, Linda Miko; children, Diane (Jim) Hartman, Matthew (Beth) Olejarz, Nathan (Janet) Olejarz and Sarah Rossi. He is also survived by 10 Grandchildren; Zachary, Samuel and Tori Hartman, Brandi (Collin) Miloser and Brooke Olejarz, Nathalie and Noah Olejarz, and Calvin, Chloe and Caleb Rossi, and by one great-granddaughter Clara May. 

Dave was an avid hockey fan who loved his Pittsburgh Penguins.  He enthusiastically watched every Pens game.  He worked for many years in the printing/graphic design industry as Director of Operations, Plant Manager, and various other roles.  His attention to detail carried over into his home life where he enjoyed working with wood.  He was a talented designer who made beautiful things out of wood for the people he loved.  Dave loved being in the kitchen cooking with Linda.  He spent his time making old-time recipes as well as trying out new recipes to share with many.   

A memorial service at the Cemetery of the Alleghenies will be held in the spring, followed by a celebration of his life. Arrangements were entrusted to Pittsburgh Cremation & Funeral Care, McMurray, PA.

Dave made a big impact in our lives.  He and mom enjoyed each other's company and had fun together.  Many wonderful memories were made like our trips to the wineries, Erie, Lewes Beach, and Dave's favorite trip to Niagara Falls.  Mom and Dave really loved each other.  We all loved him.  He will be greatly missed by Linda, Kelli, Dave, John, Jarret, Ben, and his "Woodchuck".

Linda & Kelli, I am so sorry for your loss. I sure am going to miss Dave on our outings, not to mention his great cooking. I know I could never make Chicken Marsala as good as him, no matter how many times he tried to teach me on vacations.

Sarah my heart breaks for you, your siblings and all the grandchildren. I will never forget the many phone calls and texts from your dad asking if I heard from you and if you were ok! He loved you all very much and always wanted to make sure you were safe! It was an honor to know the man that gave me a best friend for life. His compassion and heart lives through you.
