He was born in West Leechburg, PA on December 14, 1929, the son of the late Martin J. and Anna Louise Murchak Kuric. Marty graduated from Leechburg H.S.in 1948 and was employed at Allegheny Ludlum/ATI until his retirement in 1991 after 43 years. He was a volunteer fireman at West Leechburg Fire Department, calling BINGO in their Recreation Hall for many years. He was also a member of the Sokol Club in Leechburg. He moved to Erie to be closer to his son and his family after his beloved wife of 56 years passed away in 2012. Martin was a member of Christ the King Parish in Leechburg and became a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church after relocating to Erie. A kind gentleman, he often sat in “his” chair in the atrium at Niagara Village where he enjoyed watching people and chatting with the staff. He also enjoyed worshipping his Lord and Savior at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, going out for a “good meal” at local restaurants, doing crossword puzzles, following the Pittsburgh and Erie sports teams, and mostly spending time with his family. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife Theresa A. Romeo Kuric in 2012 and one brother Frank Kuric in 2018. Martin is survived by his son Dr. Kevin M. Kuric (Beth) of Millcreek, two grandsons; Brian A. Kuric (Alyssa) of Worthington, OH and Justin D. Kuric, of Columbus, OH. He also is survived by two sisters; Josephine Donghia formerly of Vandergrift and Betty Ulizio (Mario) of West Leechburg. Arrangements are being handled by Dusckas-Martin Funeral Home and Crematory, Inc.
