John was retired after 40 years from Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Allenport. For the past 13 years John and wife Evona have owned and operated Lenhart's Tavern which will continue to remain open. He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed camp in Elk county. Because of John's love for beer he was known as "Beer Break".

Visitation will be held on Sunday December 5, 2021 from 2pm-6pm at the Leonard M. Pavlic Funeral Homes, Inc. 235 Fallowfield Ave., Charleroi where funeral services will be held on Monday December 6 at 10:00am with Rev. Larry Coltura presiding. Interment will follow at Monongahela Cemetery.


I am very sorry to have just learned of John's passing. I worked with John many years. We always shared a good laugh especially when he would stretch a story and I had to explain what actually happened! All was in good fun. John was a hard worker at Allenport and was extremely dedicated to producing a quality product! Sadly we didn't get to officially retire. I'll always remember John for all of the above. My deepest sympathy to his family.

To a fellow co worker and friend. I worked with John on the pickle line at Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel. We were crane operators. He was my relief. You could always count on John to show up for work. To me he was quiet,conscientious and a very good crane operator. Sorry I was unable to attend the viewing as my wife is a recent stem cell transplant patient and are advised to be cautious of gatherings. I've known John for many years as we were fellow Charleroi alumni. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
