Steve Zulovich, Jr., 85, of Edinboro, died peacefully Tuesday, December 3, 2019 in the company of his loving family. He was born in Edinboro on January 11, 1934, the son of the late Steve and Mary (Mihalich) Zulovich.
Steve graduated from Edinboro High School in 1951, and later met Laura Boylan at a square dance in Waterford. They were married in 1957. The couple were blessed with two daughters; Pamela (Donald Leach) Zulovich, of Cleveland, and Dr. Linda Zulovich, D.O., of Grove City.
Traveling, taking in nature while mowing acres of land, and inserting his dry sense of humor into a conversation were a few of the things he enjoyed. Steve worked on the family farm and began learning about installation of electrical services at an early age. He assisted an electrician providing services to the farm and continued to show remarkable aptitude in learning to repair just about anything. After leaving the farm, he joined the maintenance department at Edinboro State College, where he held various posts, including acting Head of Maintenance. Steve retired from Edinboro University of PA in 1991 after 30 years of service. In addition, he ran his own plumbing, heating and electrical repair business.
He was preceded in death by his brother, Michael Zulovich; his sisters, Anna (Charles) Naculich, Mary (Alvin) Elegeer, Ella (Dewey) Styer; foster sister, Ann (Joseph) Pankuch; and a niece, Donna Sitler. In addition to his wife and children, survivors include his sister-in-law, Julia Zulovich, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
