Baldwin Kiwanis Club President Dies

Friends will be received at Brentwood's Slater Funeral Home on Thursday and Friday.

Timothy John Pifer of South Park Township, the president of the charity-minded Baldwin Kiwanis Club, died on Monday.

Prior to a moment of silence at Tuesday night's Baldwin Borough Council meeting, council Vice President Michael Stelmasczyk said that Pifer died during an operation related to a heart problem.

Through his longtime membership in the Kiwanis Club, Pifer, 64, worked closely with the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children.

Friends will be received at the John F. Slater Funeral Home in Brentwood Borough on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. and on Friday from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. A funeral prayer will also be held at Slater Funeral Home on Saturday at 10:15 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Germaine Church in Bethel Park at 11 a.m.

According to Pifer's obituary, his family suggests that contributions be made to the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children at 201 N. Bellefield Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15213.

A friend, a co-worker, a Brother-in-Christ. Though small in stature, Tim surely had a big heart.

Tim was always a joy to be around in the office. He always asked how I was and my family and I always asked about his. My heart goes out to his wife and mother and rest of the family. Tim will be missed.
