Jacob W. Mayer III, 79, (Bill) passed away on Friday, January 12, 2024. Bill was born in Bristol, WV on February 22, 1944. He was the beloved son of the late Jacob and Marie Mayer. He was preceded in death by two brothers, Jimmy and Johnny, and three sisters, Anna Marie (Lucarelli), Jackie (Brula), and Helen (Carr) as well as two grandchildren, Braydon and Andy Pitoniak.
He was an adoring husband to his ‘Mrs.’, the late Judith Ann Mayer and was a devoted and caring father to his children, Bill (Vicki) Mayer, Jamie (Marcie) Mayer, Jill (Mike) Pitoniak, and Amanda (Randy) Warnock. “Pap” was a proud grandfather to Kasi, Joey, Princess Victoria, Sara, Ryder, Izzy, Wyatt, Michael, Jacob, and Greyson.
Bill had a long and prosperous life that including serving his country as a U.S. Marine for six years and being a dedicated husband, father, and friend for the rest of his days. Some of his favorite pastimes included fishing, riding dirt bikes, camping, gardening, hugs, fixing cars, and just about anything else that was broken he could get his hands on.
Bill was known for his generosity, kindness, and love for everyone, but most of all his silliness. He was famous for his Jerry Lewis style comedy and ironically looked a lot like him too!
Of the many things that really stood out about Bill was that his compassion and love for others was never-ending. He bought food for homeless people and gave money to strangers in need, but the most amazing example of his compassion and love for others was many years ago when his youngest brother Johnny, was killed by a motor vehicle. Judith, his loving wife, spent a lot of time researching (pre-Google) and found the man that was driving. Bill called and spoke with him to find out exactly what happened. He recorded the phone conversation and multiple times throughout the conversation, Bill offered this man counseling and told him he could call him at any time he needed to talk.
Bill was a true family man. The most important thing to him was his family and he cherished every minute he spent with them. He will truly be missed.
Friends and family will be received on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, from 2pm-8pm at Cieslak Tatko Funeral Home, 2935 Brownsville Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15227.
