Edward Pope Mackel

July 10, 1925 — July 19, 2022

MACKEL – Edward Pope, 97, South Fork, died July 19, 2022, at Westmont Woods. Born July 10, 1925, in Johnstown, son of Byrl and Annetta (Thomas) Mackel. Preceded in death by parents; wife Eleanor J. (Navatsyk), who died February 12, 2009; daughter, Martina Sanderson; sister, Verdene Hancock; and brothers, Devon, Howard, and Arthur.

Pope was a graduate of Adams Township High School, class of 1944. He attended services at the Parkview Alliance Church for many years. He was an avid hunter, enjoyed the outdoors and was a member of the South Fork Pistol Club. Though he fell asleep in this world, we find comfort knowing he has awakened in Heaven and has rejoined those loved ones whom he has longed to see again.
