Philip Lynn Hordusky, 58, of Warren, PA., passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, surrounded by his family following an incredibly courageous six- year battle with cancer. Born in Erie, PA., on June 26, 1963, to the late George L. and Virginia Crowell Hordusky. Philip graduated from McDowell High School in 1981 and had been employed by Fisk & Company before joining Chemlawn. After a promotion to manager of the Kane branch, he and his family moved to Warren. After over 20 years with Chemlawn, he transitioned to Ferrellgas where he managed the Warren, PA., North East, PA., and Kennedy, N.Y. facilities for many years. In 2020, Philip retired from a new career path he had started at Cummins Jamestown Engine Plant. He had been with Cummins for the past 10 years and ended his career there as an Electrician in Facilities.
Philip enjoyed cheering for the Buffalo Bills, hunting, NASCAR, and in his younger years enjoyed dirt track racing with his eldest brother and father. Philip had been a member of the North Warren Volunteer Fire Department for over 20 years. Most of his active tenure was in the position of Assistant Fire Chief. In addition to his parents, Philip was preceded in death by an infant granddaughter, Clara Lynn Williams.
Philip is survived by his wife of 35 years, Heidi Fiske Hordusky whom he married on May 30, 1986; three children: Ashley (Devon) Swatt of Warren, PA., Courtney (Tobias) Williams and Jonah Hordusky and his companion, Mary Fiscus, all of Sheffield, PA., brothers: Bruce (Joan) Hordusky of Erie, PA., Glenn (Carol) Hordusky of The Plains, VA., a sister – Julia Richardson of Erie, PA., mother-in-law, Cynthia Fiske of Erie, PA., brother-in-law, Jerome (Mary) Fiske of McKean, PA., and many nieces and nephews.
His joy in life was being a husband and father, spending time with his family and encouraging and supporting them in their pursuits. Being a grandfather was a most special joy for him. His surviving grandsons, Harrison Russell Williams and Easton Philip Williams were his greatest treasures that brought him the strength to continue his fight. Philip will be remembered by those that loved him most for his kindness, positive attitude, his sense of humor and love for his family.
