Phillip C. Tridico, age 56, of Midland, PA, died peacefully on Saturday, May 1, 2021 following a brief battle with cancer.
Phil is survived by his mother, Joann Tridico; his wife, Raquel Tridico; Michael Randolph, who was a son to him; his brother, Anthony (Laura) Tridico; his niece and nephews John, Anthony and Nikki Tridico; and countless relatives and close friends.
Phil, or “Kat” to many, was a graduate of Quigley High School and Gannon University. He had worked as a systems analyst with the Midland Water Authority for nearly 35-years. Phil was an avid Notre Dame and Steelers fan, who could often be found tailgating at home games with his friends. But his real passion was winemaking. Using the skills he learned from his grandfather Cesare Martinetti, each year he brought his friends and family together to create wines to be shared and enjoyed by all. Phil also spent many years volunteering his time to the PA Cyber Board of Trustees, most recently as Vice President. And independent of the quality of the golf, he was an avid golfer, spending many happy hours with friends in their golf league. His deep loyalty to his family and friends will be missed by all who were blessed to know him. He was a good man.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Wednesday May 5, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. at Saint Blaise Parish, Midland, with a private entombment to take place at the Beaver Cemetery Mausoleum.
