John E. Ruhl, 67, of Buffalo Twp., passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 16th, at his residence. John was born in Pittsburgh, on May 13, 1953, a son of the late Angela (Smolensky) and Lawrence Ruhl. He was the owner and operator of Ruhl Renovations for 50 years. His craft was his passion in life. He enjoyed quality time with his kids, teaching them his contracting skills. One of his favorite pastimes was spending time with his family at camp, fishing with the guys. He always made time for morning coffee at King's with the "Romeo's". He was one of the most stubborn human beings you have ever met but under that exterior, he was a kind-hearted man who would do anything for those that he loved. John is survived by his wife of 40 years, Judith (Gronsky) Ruhl; his daughter, Angela (Michael) Petrosky, of Wexford; his son, Nathaniel Ruhl, of Buffalo Twp.; 2 grandchildren, Ethan & Iris Petrosky, brother, Lawrence “Butch” (Patricia) Ruhl, of Fleming Island, FL; sister, Kathy Ruhl, of Lake Elsinore, CA; and numerous nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister Mary Pittson and niece Danielle Churilla. There will be no public visitation. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date, with announcement following. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Concordia Adult Daycare Center at https://secure.qgiv.com/for/conlutmin/restriction/Other

John will be sorely missed. I know that we lost touch over the years, but I remember John fondly. He was an incredible family man, loving Husband and Father. What I remember most about him was his generosity, especially with his time. What a truly wonderful sole. He was so very talented working with his hands. He could build and fix just about anything. Rest in Peace my friend.

To Johns family, I have many, many great memories of you, your sister Mary, Frank and Renee, being at our house on Chislett Street. We shared beautiful times with Jody, Lori, Joe and Ray. You taught me how to drive a straight shift all through Morningside, stalling at every stop sign. Patient, kind, respectful, great smile. We were born one day apart 12,13 of May. I’ve been praying for you, and wishing your family the peace of understanding as you take your last breath on this earth and your first in heaven. Thank you for memories and old love letters that mean the world to me. My sincere condolences to all that know you.
