His brother, Mike, and his sister Jeanie, and many other nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Michael and Irene Petruskie of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, his Son Lenny Petruskie and Daughter Debra Andrews and sisters Ruth Martin and Virginia Petruskie from Pittsburgh.

Len spent his career in the Automobile industry after serving in the Marines and Fighting in the Korean War.  He was a proud Marine and was a totally disabled veteran due to the injuries sustained in the war. He was an author, writing a book on How To Build a Race car, he loved racing and spent many years building his own race cars.

He also loved singing and dancing, and loved cooking.  The Song My Way was his favorite, he had it recorded, and this is how he lived his life, to the words of that song.  He definitely did it his way until the end was here and he faced the final curtain.
