Robert Tangretti Obituary

Robert Michael Tangretti, 79, of Greensburg, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at his home in Greensburg, surrounded by family. “Bob” as he was known to his family, was born in Greensburg, Pennsylvania on February 13, 1944, to Albert Paul and Pearl Mary (Yett) Tangretti. The oldest of three children, he loved history, arts and crafts, and working with his hands, and was a very talented artist and wood sculptor. He graduated from Jeannette Senior High School in 1962 and enlisted in the Air Force Reserve, attended boot camp at Lackland Air Base in San Antonio Texas, and served six years at the 911th Airbase in Pittsburgh. He then attended the Pittsburgh Beauty Academy, studying barbering and hairstyling under Arnold Zegarelli. Upon graduating, he worked with his mother in her salon at their home for several years.  He then worked for Jeannette Glass in the 1970’s and was best known in the area for working in the jewelry business at Zales Jewelers, Bailey, Banks, and Biddle Jewelry, and Littman Jewelers at Westmoreland Mall. He retired after working for UEC, a division of US Steel, and was happy to be around family whenever possible. He is survived by his wife, Judith (Maloberti) Tangretti, whom he adored during their 58 years of marriage. Bobby, as Judy called him, is also survived by son, David M. (Cathy) Tangretti, of Greensburg; daughter, Renee C. (Edward) Reich, of Murrysville; three grandchildren, Juliana Tangretti, Tyler Reich, and Carson Reich; a brother, Thomas (Sandy) Tangretti, of Arlington, Virginia; a sister, Diane (Gary) Wolfe, of Greensburg; and many nieces and nephews.  Friends will be received from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 PM Thursday at the LEO M.
