Michael J.T. Sacco

Michael J.T. Sacco, 40, of Cochranton, passed away Wednesday, April 17, 2019, as the result of an automobile accident.

Michael was born in Meadville, on October 20, 1978, a son of Barbara (Knoll) Sacco and the late Donald F. Sacco.

On November 10, 2012, Michael married Rhiannon M. Weller; she survives.

He was a member of Lyona Bible Church Guys Mills.

A 1997 graduate of Cochranton High School, Michael was a member of the Football Team and the National Honor Society. Throughout his school career, and beyond, he had an extremely keen understanding of computers and was often called upon to assist with technology. In 2001 Michael graduated from Grove City College with a Bachelor's Degree in History. He was a member of Delta Iota Kappa Fraternity and worked security for many of the college's events. Following his college graduation Michael became employed by George Junior Republic and was actively working there as a Clinical Manager up until the time of his death. He was an avid car enthusiast. His mechanical intellect was second nature and he enjoyed fixing all types of items as well as doing electrical work and plumbing. There were countless times that Michael freely, willingly and correctly diagnosed mechanic problems for anyone who asked. He especially enjoyed working to restore his 1978 Ford Thunderbird. Michael's passing leaves a large hole in our hearts. He will be deeply missed.

In addition to his wife Rhiannon, Michael is survived by three children Alayna Mae Weller, Anthony Kevin Francis Sacco, Aaron Joseph Thomas Sacco, all at home, his mother Barbara Sacco of Cochranton, two brothers Matthew Sacco (Karen) of Independence, OH, Donald Sacco, Jr. (Kelly) of Sumrall, MS, four brothers in law Brannon Byrd (Sheila), Tyler Caldwell (Kenley) both of Louisiana, Lucas Sauers (fiance' Jeanette) of Pittsburgh, Colin Mitchell of California, six nieces and nephews Juliana, Lucas, and Gabriel Sacco, Mallory, Lillian, and Jackson Byrd.
