Rodney McAnallen Obituary

Rodney L. McAnallen, 69, of Karns City, died Monday, June 12, 2023 at his home.

Born January 15, 1954 in Butler, he was the son of Leo J. and Thelma M. (Allen) McAnallen.

On November 18, 2004, Rodney married the former Luanne M. Anderson, she survives.

A 1972 graduate of Butler High School, Rodney began his career as a “tankee” and joined the Boilermakers Local 154 in 1976.  Rodney was a hardworking, no-nonsense tradesman for 32 years, retiring in 2008. 

Rodney and Luanne co-owned the All Stars Bar and Restaurant in East Brady where he could often be found visiting with friends- he was liked by everyone.

After a career of traveling, Rodney enjoyed his retirement at home where he could hunt, fish, go for buggy rides, listen to the Pittsburgh Pirates, cook a meal on the deck and be in the company of his dog, Zeus. 

Surviving is his wife Luanne McAnallen of Karns City, one son, Adam McAnallen of Karns City, one stepson, Matt (Kelli) Hillwig of Harmony and two grandsons, Trace and Kayce Hillwig.

He is also survived by two nephews, Clay and Jason McAnallen, one great nephew, Nathan McAnallen and his sister-in-law, Lynne Kovach.

Rodney was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Daniel.

At his request, no services will be held for Rodney.
