David Zovko Obituary

David “Doc” R. Zovko, 75, a Moon Township resident most of his life, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 11, 2024, at Caring Heights. David was born in Pittsburgh on March 2, 1948, one of three children to the late Andrew and Helen (Jeletic) Zovko. On September 21, 2005, he was preceded in death by his wife of 33 years, Susan (Straight) Zovko. Beloved father of Kimberly Zovko, Bethany Zovko, Daniel Zovko and wife Kristin Machaj, and Robert Zovko; cherished grandfather of Rosalyn Morgan and Suzanne Jaros; brother of Andrea Spina and husband John, and Andrew Zovko. David was a Millwright for Local Union #2235 working in the Pittsburgh area, until his retirement in 2006. He served in the U.S. Army during Vietnam. David was a wizard at crossword puzzles and Jeopardy. He was an avid Pittsburgh sports fan, always cheering loudly or yelling at the team and refs. He was sometimes an avid snacker but had an uncanny ability to befriend strangers with his down-to-earth gift of gab. He always made people feel welcome. Visitation will be Saturday, Jan. 20, 2024, at Copeland’s Moon Township, 981 Brodhead Rd., from 11 AM until 3 PM.
