Robert Franklin McFaddin, 74, passed away at his home in California, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. He was surrounded by a loving family after a complicated battle with dementia and congestive heart failure. He was born on August 1, 1946 in Detroit, Michigan to the late M. William and Suzanne McFaddin. He was raised in Monessen and graduated from Monessen High School in 1964 where he played on the football team which he loved and supported throughout his life. He graduated with a B.S. in Childhood Education from California University of Pennsylvania in May of 1970. His determination and ambition to become an Eagle Scout when he was younger fed his passion to ultimately become the entrepreneur, he and his wife, Patty, have been most of their lives. Mac, as his friends knew him, possessed a zest for life as big as his presence. He was fiercely independent, loyal and courageous while possessing the curious mind of an inventor. He enjoyed sharing his childhood and life stories with family and friends which often included his next big idea. He found purpose when the room was filled with family and his real joy came in spending family vacations in Florida, visiting the casinos with Patty in Atlantic City and Las Vegas, and spending time with his children, grandchildren, and his dog and protector, Bugsy. Throughout his career he worked as a steel worker for Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel Allenport Plant; Owner and operator of Mac’s Auto, the first business he opened; student teaching at the Mon Valley Vo-Tech School; and owned and managed numerous rental and renovation properties throughout the Mon Valley. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Patricia Frow McFaddin; his children Troy (Cindy) Baldwin, Candy (Donnie) Tirpak, Georgette Baldwin, Bob (Kitty) McFaddin, Michele (Scott) Backo, Jill (Bill) Spencer, BJ (Gianna) McFaddin and Susan McFaddin. Mac especially loved spending his time with all of his grandchildren including Blaine, Heather (Jim), Blake, Andrew, Kaylee, Jenna, Robbie, Jordan, Bryce, Joel, Ecko, Taylor, Cecelia, Lillian, Sarah, Olivia. He is survived by his sister Geraldine McFaddin Holloway Burke who he was very close with, in addition to numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by a son, Shane Baldwin. Friends will be received on Saturday February 20 from 2 until 8 pm in the Robert A. Billick Funeral Home Inc.
