John S. Biskup Jr., 77, of Masontown, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at his residence.

He was born in Uniontown, PA on March 6, 1944, the son of the late John and Theresa (Santora) Biskup. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother George Biskup.

John graduated from Albert Gallatin High School Class of 1964 and was employed as a coal miner at Cumberland Mine until he retired in 2006. He was quite ornery and was well liked by all the miners.

John was an avid Ford fan. He loved his Ford F-150 pick up truck and cleaned it every chance he could. He loved going to car shows in his 1966 Mercury Comet Cyclone GT and his 1967 Ford Fairlane 500. He made many car show friends over the years. John loved to piddle in his garage and enjoyed wood working. He made beautiful gifts for family and friends. Every Christmas they would get something new.
