Michael J. Svetecz, Sr.
53, logistics manager, Catholic High volunteer
Michael J. Svetecz, Sr., 53, of Lititz, passed away Sunday, July 14, 2013, surrounded by his loving family, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born in Bethlehem, he was the son of the late Richard E. Sr. and Mary (Catsirmas) Svetecz. He celebrated 21 years of marriage with his wife, Catherine Svetecz, this past December.
Michael was a 1977 graduate of Bethlehem Catholic High School and received a bachelor’s degree from DeSales University. He worked as a logistics manager for various companies throughout the years and had most recently served as a logistics manager for Dawn Foods in York.
Michael volunteered and was very passionate about Lancaster Catholic High School and the kids he came in contact with. He was involved with the Boy Scout Troop 6 and Pack 96.
Michael was a die-hard Notre Dame football fan and also followed the Lancaster Catholic football team. He was thrilled to watch his son play football for the Crusaders and have his daughter serve as the student athletic trainer for the team. He was an avid hiker and enjoyed going to Monument Valley, Utah. He also enjoyed reading and loved animals. Michael had a great sense of humor and touched the lives of many people he came in contact with.
He was a member of St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Lancaster.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to all the LRMC doctors, nurses, staff, Sue Juliano, CRNP, Mary Ellen Francescani, CRNP, and Lancaster Catholic High School, the football team for all the special care and assistance that was provided to the family during this time.
In addition to his loving wife, Cathy, he is survived by his two children: Michael J. Svetecz, Jr. and Meghan E. Svetecz, both of Lititz. Also surviving is a brother: Richard E. Svetecz, husband of Deborah, of Bethlehem.
A memorial mass was held July 19 at St. John Neumann Catholic Church with Rev. Michael J. Culkin as Celebrant.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Michael’s memory may be made to Lancaster Catholic High School, 630 Juliette Ave., Lancaster, PA 17601.
