Richard S. Kratko, of Masury, Ohio, was born, August 29, 1951, a son to Frank and Anna (Mikulin) Kratko, Sr. of Brookfield, Ohio. He passed away on December 10, 2020, at Allegheny General Hospital, in Pittsburgh.

He had the ability to hold a conversation with anyone. To him, there was no such thing as a stranger.

Rich worked as a fabricator at General Extrusions in Youngstown until he retired.

He loved fishing, camping, and being outside in the yard enjoying the nice weather. He was capable of inventing and figuring out a solution to make tasks simpler. He was a great problem solver. In addition, he always cheered for the Cleveland Indians and Browns.

Rich’s life ended way too soon. He will be missed dearly by his family and friends. We love you!

He leaves behind his wife, Sharon; children, Tom (Megan) Kratko, John (Missy) Kratko, both of Sharpsville, Pennsylvania, Shannon Kratko, of Sharon, Pennsylvania, and Rhonda Kratko (Chuck), of Youngstown, Ohio; step-son, Todd (Heather) Magyarosi, of Tampa, Florida; seven grandchildren; one great-grandson; and sisters, Stephanie Baker, of Brookfield, and Marianne (Ken) Remalia, of Mesa, Arizona.

Preceding him in death were his parents; and his brothers, Frank Jr. and Ronald Kratko.

In accordance to his wishes, no calling hours or services will be held.
