Phil Perciavalle, of Leetsdale, PA passed-away peacefully at Good Samaritan Hospice, Thursday, January 7th. Friends and family of Phil will remember his love for both his community and his family. Born and raised in Leetsdale, a 1962 graduate of Quaker Valley High School, Phil spent his life giving back to his community. An avid Steelers fan, he shared his passion for football by co-founding the midget football program for Quaker Valley and enjoyed watching his son and grandsons play for Quaker Valley Schools. Phil served as a youth sports coach and further served his community as a member of the Leetsdale Counsel until he was elected Tax Collector for Leetsdale borough in 2000. Phil spent 4 decades of his professional career as a sales manager at Consolidated Graphics.
For Phil, “la famigla é tutto.” He is cherished in memory by his older brothers Rocco (Carol) Perciavalle, Vince (Sherry) Perciavalle and by numerous nieces, and nephews held very dear to him.
