Patrick James Liberaski Sr. passed away at home on August 22, 2023 at the age of 78 in Mountaintop, Pa. His battle with cancer, the past three years, showed his courage in facing life’s challenges with resilience, a smile and a joke. Despite the challenges, Pat came out a hero and stayed strong until the end.


Pat married the love of his life, Dorothy (Prutzman) on July 8, 1967, celebrating their 56th anniversary this past summer. Pat and Dort enjoyed traveling, especially their winters in Florida, classic car shows, Elvis Presley and spending time with family and friends.  Pat is the proud father of Patrick Jr. (Millsboro, DE)  and Christine Liberaski Gonzales (Ambler, PA), and grandfather to Emily Liberaski (Orlando), and Ellie and Cate Kroznuski (Ambler, PA).

Pat was the son of the late Theodore and Kathleen Bonner Liberaski. He attended James M. Coughlin High School and proudly served in the US Navy as an aviation ordnanceman from 1963 to 1966 on the USS America. He was awarded the National Defense Medal for active duty service during the Vietnam War. He later continued his service as a member of the US Navy Reserves.


Pat was a member of the Ironworkers Union, Local Number 489, and retired from the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.  Pat was a member of many social clubs, including the PAV, the Slovak Club, the American Legion, the VFW,  the Catholic War Vets, and many, many more. Pat was known to leave his homemade soup in people’s mailboxes, truck beds and front porches.


In addition to his wife, children and granddaughters, Pat is survived by sisters Anne Marie Gavaghan, Kathy Sadowski (Damian), and brother Ted Liberaski (Mary). He will be missed by his daughter-in-law Jill, son-in-law Armando, nieces, great niece and nephew, step grandchildren, GiGi, cousins and lifelong friends.
