Richard F. "Dickie" Pirain

January 24, 1943 ~ December 16, 2021 (age 78)


Age 78, formerly of Brookline, suddenly, on Thursday, December 16, 2021. Beloved husband of 50 years to Joanne (Cestone) Pirain. Devoted father to Joe (Nikki) Pirain and Carmen Pirain. Grandfather and “Tete” of Noelle, Evan, Christopher, Tyler, and Max. Brother of Roy (Joan) Pirain and Ramona Dryer. Son of the late Fredrick and Della (Buchignani) Pirain. Son-in-law of the late Joseph and Ida (Melfi) Cestone of Youngstown, Ohio. Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Born January 24, 1943, Dickie grew up in Brookline and attended and graduated from South Hills High School and Youngstown University. His working career first began at Allegheny Lundlum Steel, but for the past thirty years, Dickie was a small business owner in Mt. Washington. Dickie loved his family, friends, golf, and everything Pittsburgh. He was a fun, energetic, and healthy guy, who was actively working and enjoying life, prior to his death. Although, he will be dearly missed, he would only want to be remembered as a wonderful and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. Family and friends received 12-5 p.m. on Sunday at BRUSCO-NAPIER FUNERAL SERVICE, LTD., 2201 Bensonia Ave., Pgh, PA 15216.

Dickie’s family is extremely grateful and would like to extend their thanks and appreciation to the staff at St. Clair Hospital, as well as, MRTSA and the first responders for their heroic efforts. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to the Ronald McDonald House, 451 44th St., Pgh, PA 15201, or First Tee-Pittsburgh, 5370 Schenley Dr., Pgh, PA 15217.
