William Jesse "Pik" Piktel, Loved being outdoors, hunting or fishing

William Jesse Piktel, 56, of Daisytown, Pa., died as the result of a motor vehicle accident on Thursday, December 29, 2016.

He was born on Sunday, July 31, 1960 in Waynesburg, Pa., son of Joseph and Jean (Polidori) Piktel.

‘Pik’ loved to hunt! It didn’t matter what he was hunting —– deer, turkeys, rattlesnakes, or mushrooms, he just loved being outdoors, hunting or fishing. He especially loved hunting deer with his grandson, Jacob.

Bill was also into his garden; he loved growing his own vegetables and sharing them with his family and friends.

He had many ‘loves’ in his life. Four years ago he married his love, Jennifer. He also loved to go on cruises. He was the father of three sons and just four months ago was delighted to finally be blessed with a baby girl, Angelina.

His smile and laugh were infectious, and he enjoyed life to the fullest.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Joe Piktel.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of four years, Jennifer Piktel of Daisytown; sons: William Piktel and wife Rachel of California, Pa., Brian Piktel and wife Megan of Belle Vernon, Pa., Robert Piktel of Elco Pa.; daughter, Angelina Piktel; grandchildren: Jacob, Allison, Shane, Colton, Carena, and Harper Piktel.
