Maurice "Beau" R. Bolinski


Maurice “Beau” R. Bolinski, of Pittsburgh, passed away on Sunday, November 6, 2022 surrounded by family and friends at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital. Beau was born on September 22, 1936 in Mocanaqua, PA to the late Leokadya “Lottie” Bujno and Stanley Bolinski. He is survived by his loving children, Karen Lynne Rentko (Jack), Marisa Bolinski Warford (the late Reggie), Jeffrey Eric Bolinski (Susie), and Christine Maria Florio (Jim); and grandchildren, David John Rentko, John Eric Rentko, Leigh Ann Petty, Grant Reginald Warford, Tyler Reginald Warford, and Marysa Louise Florio. He was also preceded in death by his siblings, Gertrude Bolinski Runewicz, Leonard Stanley Bolinski, Christine Charmaine Yurkoski, Robert Joseph Bolinski, and Alfred G. Bolinski. Beau graduated from Bloomsburg University with a bachelor’s degree in Education. He proudly served in the United States Air Force from 1954 until 1958. He worked as a teacher, then as a pharmaceutical salesman for many years before taking on his favorite job of a “live-in nanny” and “Pop Beau” for his grandchildren, Grant and Tyler “Tiger” Warford who he helped raise since birth. Beau loved to cook, grocery shop, and travel. He lived in Belize, Honduras, Key West, and Block Island. Beau was an avid Penn State football fan and enjoyed watching Jeopardy where he regularly knew the answers before the contestants. He could fix anything with his creative know-how and a little duct tape. Beau loved to sing, listen to Joni James, and had a witty sense of humor, always wanting to lift people’s spirits. Above all else, he loved his family, prayed the rosary, and said the novenas to St. Padre Pio da Pietrelcina. Mass of Christian Burial, Thursday, November 10, 10:00 a.m., St. Thomas More Church, Resurrection Parish, 126 Fort Couch Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15241. Interment private to the family. Arrangements entrusted to FREYVOGEL-SLATER FUNERAL DIRECTORS, 112 Fort Courch Road, (412-835-1860).
