May 2, 1935 - March 12, 2016
Michael Pewor, of Pennsauken passed on March 12, 2016. Beloved husband of Leona (nee Weiss) of 58 years. Devoted father to Michael J. Pewor and his wife Kim, Melanie J. DiPascale and her husband Dave, Malerie McCarren and her husband Pat. Brother of Anna P. Biltheiser (Joseph), Mary Pewor Hafer (Rev. Walter). Loving and dedicated grandfather to David DiPascale, Ryan DiPascle, Tyler DiPascale, Cole Pewor, Travis Pewor, Eamon McCarren and Ethan McCarren. Mike was born in Pottsville, PA to the late Michael and Ann Pewor in 1935. He attended Pottsville High School where he was an avid track star and football player and he ran in the Penn Relays. He went on to serve his country in the 101st Airborne Division out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky. After Mike's service in the Army he became a roofer by trade and married the love of his life, Leona Weiss. Mike and Leona journeyed to Pennsauken in 1964 and started their family. They had three beautiful children together. Mike also had a passion for boxing. He was a hard worker and created his own roofing company that flourished for 55 years. To know Mike was to love Mike and to know him was to know he was "Iron Mike." Mike cherished his family and lived for his grandchildren. He was involved with many youth athletic associations and was the President of the Pennsauken Youth Athletic Association. What meant the most to Mike was his true adorned love for his grandchildren's sporting events. He never missed a game and he was an avid fan of every single one of them. Friends and family are invited to Mike's life celebration on Wednesday, March 16th from 5:30pm to 8pm. A funeral service will follow. He will be laid to rest at Brigadier General William C. Doyle Cemetery which will be private to the family. In lieu of flowers the family would like to request that donations be made to your local youth athletic associations in memory of Mike.
