Obituary for David J. Matranga

David J. Matranga, 85, of Peoria, passed away on Wednesday, May 4th 2022 in Peoria, IL.

He was born on November 28, 1936 in Brooklyn, NY to Paul A. and Elda Matranga. He married Kathryn I. Weakley on October 3, 1970 in Peoria, IL. She preceded him in death on November 9, 2020 in Peoria.

He is survived by four children: David F.

David was preceded in death by his parents, one brother Paul C. Matranga, and two sisters Debbie Pirnar and Jean Watt.

David attended Spaulding Institute in Peoria, IL. He was a devout Catholic his entire life and worked multiple jobs throughout his lifetime creating lifelong friendships. He was a hard worker with a strong work ethic his entire life, including retiring from the Illinois Air National Guard 182nd Airlift Wing, Carpenter from Local 237 as well as owning several local businesses.

David cherished having his family all together at the house for talking and reminiscing, about family history. He valued his family, his faith, education and friendships. We were blessed to be part of his family and we will miss his guidance and support in ways that can never be conveyed.
