Martin Arthur Pochapin Obituary

POCHAPIN: Martin Arthur Pochapin died on Thursday, June 25, 2020, at the age of 94. Affectionately known by many as ‘Marty,’ he was born and raised in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh, but traveled near and far. He was friendly, talkative, and known by name everywhere he went. He was a WWII Veteran who served under General George S. Patton, an Advertising Salesman, a Patron of the Arts, an avid Baseball Fan, and a Connoisseur of Dining who never went a day in his life without eating something sweet. He lived a long and healthy life and was most proud of his family; wife Marsha Pochapin (deceased), Father and Mother Dr. Irwin M. and Bessie Finkelpearl Pochapin (deceased), Brother Dr. Sherman W. Pochapin (deceased), his surviving children, Pamela and Emil M. Quatchak (daughter and son-in-law), Robi Pochapin, Carol Darwish, and Miriam Pochapin (son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter), Kevin and Deanna DiGioia Pochapin, and Pablo and Antonia Linzoain (son, daughter-in-law, and step grandchildren), Allison Pochapin (daughter), and his cousins, nieces and nephews. Services were held at West View Cemetery.
