Walter Chwala Obituary

WALTER GREGORY “GREG” CHWALA, 67, of Paris, PA, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday September 20, 2023 at home. He was born March 18, 1956 in Pittsburgh, PA, son of the late Walter Kasper and Viola Mae Cook Chwala. He is also preceded in death by his loving wife of 20 years, Carol Jane Alkire Chwala (March 2019).

Greg was an active member and very involved in Paris Presbyterian Church. He was also a member of McDonald Rod and Gun Club. Some may remember Greg as a Cub Scout Leader of Pack 1394 in McDonald for 5 years. Greg was an avid runner and walker. He could be seen often on Devils Den Road and Paris-Colliers Road, waving at everyone who passed by. Greg was a Steelers fan and loved listening to music. Greg worked for 38 years at Covestro, formerly Bayer, as a HSEQ Rep, before retiring in 2018. His true passion was the outdoors. Greg loved kayaking, fishing and biking, especially at his camp purchased in 2019 on the Allegheny River in Tidioute, PA. He loved traveling to Florida every year with Carol and many fishing trips to Alaska with his friend Burk. Greg was also a religious man, who became strong in faith later in his life, mostly attributed to many prayers for him from Carol and his pastor and good friend Tina.

Greg will be deeply missed by his daughter, Suzanne Holt (Steven) of Clinton, PA; son, Gregory Luke Chwala (James Henderson) of Cincinnati, OH; stepdaughters, Candie Cook (Cheryl Sowers) of Coraopolis, PA and Amy Nicole Eperthener (Michael) of Chester, WV; stepson, James Burdette (Angie) of Lakeland, FL; “Pappy” to Tristan Douglas Holt and Izabella Marie Holt; grandchildren, Justin, Jordan, Kiersten and Travis; great-grandchildren, Sophia, Ayden, Jack, Teagan and Arabella; sisters, Janet Louise MacFarland (James) of Myrtle Beach, SC and Marianne Chwala of Washington, PA; uncle, Donald Cook of McDonald, PA; mother of his children, Dorothy Marie Thiry Cook; good friends, Burk and Sophie Villee and Tina Hosler; several nieces, nephews and cousins; many friends from Florida and Tidioute; and of course his beloved four-legged family, Otis and Lulu, all of whom will truly miss Greg.

Visitation will take place Sunday September 24, 2023 from 1-3pm and 6-8pm at Steel & Wolfe Funeral Home, 380 Penco Road, Weirton, WV where the funeral will take place Monday at 11am with Greg’s good friend, Rev.
