Local News

Sisters Christine Pelc and Karen Boor remembered their brother John Borkovec who passed away in the apartment building fire on Terrace Street. 

Borkovec passed away at the age of 69 in Meadville. Last Friday, Christine Pelc got a phone call telling her that there was a fire where her brother lived. “He was to himself in a way, he didn’t like family functions but he loved his family,” said Pelc. 

According to the Coroner after investigation, Borkovec parished in the fire. He was on the 3rd floor when the floor caved in. Borkovec enjoyed walking the streets of Meadville no matter what the weather was. 

He was a current member of VFW Post number 2006. His family remembers Borkovec as a person who enjoyed spending time with his loved ones over a cup of coffee.
