Obituary for James "Jim" A. Hengelsberg

James “Jim” A. Hengelsberg, 86, of Hampton Township, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 12, 2020.

Born September 18, 1933, Jim now joins his parents, Aloysius and Irene (Huber) Hengelsberg; daughter, Mary; and sisters, Grace Hoover and Reinie Yohe.

Jim was a graduate of North Catholic High School, a member of the Regional Council of Carpenters, and attended The Pennsylvania State University School of Engineering. On June 6, 1959, he married his devoted and loving wife, Mary Mildred “Millie” (Bittinger) Hengelsberg of Grantsville, Maryland.

Jim has been a part of Uhl Construction Company since 1951, serving as President and CEO over the last 40 years, without missing a day of work up until this past Thanksgiving.

While he dedicated much of his time to construction and was highly respected in the industry, his greatest joy was being surrounded by his family and friends. Jim was best known for his generosity and love of family, his steadfast abiding faith and his passion for his garden. When he was not in his garden, his favorite past times included hunting, fishing, and camping with family, watching the Steelers, attending a Pirate game, or sharing a cold beer with a friend. There was not a summer that went by that he did not take his family on a vacation to various destinations including Canada, Disney World, Nags Head, and Deep Creek Lake.

Jim was a long-time parishioner of St. Mary of the Assumption Church, an Army Veteran, a member of the American Legion, and was a proud supporter of The Child Fund International for 45 years.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 60 years, Millie; children: Jeff (Karen) Hengelsberg of Allison Park, Lisa Hengelsberg of Allison Park, Kris (Jack) Hall of Denver, CO, Mona Hengelsberg of Allison Park, Tim (Beth) Hengelsberg of West Deer, Amy Hengelsberg Evans of Ross Township, and Margie (Tony) Bailon of Allison Park; nine grandchildren: Valerie, Emily, Jimmy, Jacob, Cydney, Hannah, Hailey, Lee, and Nicholas; and four siblings: Therese Druga, Albert (Betty) Hengelsberg, Paul (Barbara) Hengelsberg, all of Allison Park; and Geraldine Dent of Fairfax Station, Virginia; numerous other relatives and countless dear friends.

Jim's family will welcome friends from 2 - 8 P.M. Thursday, January 16, 2020 at King Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 2841 Woodland Circle, Allison Park, PA.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 A.M. Friday, January 17, 2020, at St. Mary of the Assumption Church, 2510 Middle Road, Glenshaw, PA 15116. PLEASE MEET AT THE CHURCH.

A private interment will follow at Assumption Cemetery.
