Frank W. Giebell
October 12, 1949 ~ February 5, 2024 (age 74) 74 Years Old
FRANK W. “BILL” GIEBELL, 74, of Weirton, WV, passed away peacefully Monday February 5, 2024 at UPMC Mercy Hospital, surrounded by his children. He was born October 12, 1949 in Steubenville, OH, and was the son of the late Frank and Ada “Peaches” Keiffer Giebell. Bill is also reunited in Heaven with his loving wife, Deborah Marie Rohal Giebell (2000); and sister, Beverly Lacik.
Bill was a Marine Corps combat veteran of Vietnam. He retired from Weirton Steel after twenty-six years and held various positions including refrigeration repairman, wireman, and lineman. He then served Hancock County for fifteen years as a school bus driver, OVAC-winning Weir High Girls’ soccer coach, and process server for the sheriff’s office. He was a member of New Cumberland Masonic Lodge No. 22 A.F. & A.M. and previously an assistant scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America.
When Bill wasn’t working, he was waving The Terrible Towel for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pirates, or Penguins. In his younger years, he relished time hunting and fishing with his friends and children. Anyone who was fortunate enough to know Bill knows how kind and supportive he was and how he never missed an opportunity to use lighthearted humor.
Those remembering Bill are his son, Derek Giebell; daughters, Stephanie Kuca (Frank), and Sara Davis (Dana Jr.); grandchildren Kara, Macie, Lucas, and Noelle; sister, Mary Jane Pozzi; and many cherished nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
The family would like to thank all the staff at The Laurels of Steubenville for their compassionate care and helpfulness over the years as well as the all those at UPMC Mercy Hospital who provided excellent care. A private funeral service will take place at Steel & Wolfe Funeral Home with Pastor Michael Heckathorn presiding. Interment will take place at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens.
