Stanley “Kish” Foderousky Obituary

Stanley "Kish" Foderousky, 90, of Economy, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on December 26, 2023. He was preceded in death by his parents Jessie Faye Lightner and Stanley Foderousky, sisters and brothers in law, Leah (Carl) Baden, Catherine (Edward) Snyder, and Dotty (Louis) Cvetich. Stanley is survived by his son, Stanley (Ann) Foderousky, his daughter, Sherry (Jack) Holmes, both of Florida, one grandson and five great grandchildren. He was a member of the Mt. Carmel Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Aliquippa (Sheffield). Stanley served his country as a US Army veteran during the Korean War and with the US Army Corps of Engineers in Orleans, France from 1954 to 1956. Upon his return he was employed by the Adamowski Esso and Atlantic Service Station in Conway. He was also a bus driver for Freedom Area Schools from 1960-1980, a profession that brought him tremendous joy. He retired from Conrail in 1995 after 45 years of service. Stanley had a life-long commitment of service to his community. He was a life member of the Economy Fire Department from 1966 until his passing where he served as captain and assistant chief. Stanley also enjoyed his volunteer service with Meals on Wheels from 1996-2016 where he delivered meals and changed the occasional light bulb with a joke and a smile. Stanley's family would like to give a heartfelt thanks to special friends, Tony and Susan Blum and his niece Susan and Jim Weido who tirelessly gave their loving support to Stanley and his family. Visitation will take place on Tuesday January 2nd from 5 to 7 PM with a service officiated by the Economy Fire Department at 7 PM in the John Syka Funeral Home, Inc. 833 Kennedy Drive Ambridge.
