Born May 15, 1934, he is the son of the late Helen (Ondo) and George Fialkovich of Braddock. Richard is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years, Helen (Dzvonik) Fialkovich. He was a proud father to his son David (Denise) Fialkovich and was a devoted Pap to his two precious granddaughters Bailey Nicole Fialkovich and Bethany Lynn Fialkovich. Referred to as uncle Dick, or "Dickie", Richard is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins.
