Remembering Agnes Sink By Maury Fey and Susie Barbour. Agnes Sink, founding SURE member, first SURE office manager, longtime SURE Volunteer Coordinator, and Jefferson Award Winner, passed away on February 12, 2017 at the age of 93. Agnes worked as a secretary at Westinghouse Electric for 20 years, but her most profound legacy with Westinghouse might well be with the SURE Retiree group, spending 25 years as Office Manager and Volunteer Coordinator extraordinaire. Agnes first joined Westinghouse at the Astro Nuclear Lab in Large, PA in 1966. She worked there in both Purchasing and Accounting Departments until 1971, then was transferred to the R&D Center in Churchill where she worked in the Shipping and Receiving Department until her retirement in 1985. She began her career as a volunteer at the Homestead Hospital in 1986. Agnes Sink's work with the SURE organization began in 1989 when Stan Abramson called and asked her to help out at the brand new SURE office. It seemed there was a lot of data entry and volunteer recruiting work to be done as SURE got off the ground, and Agnes turned out to be a perfect fit. As our membership list grew from a few dozen to many hundreds, the office workload grew proportionally. Agnes soon found herself enlisting volunteers to help with the office work, and subsequently became SURE's first Office Manager. In the early 90ís, Agnes made a trip to the VA Hospital in Aspinwall with several other SURE members to explore the possibility of a volunteer project there. The project was so successful, Agnes was soon asked to assume the responsibility of Coordinator for SURE'S Volunteer activities at the VA Hospital, recruiting Volunteers and tracking their activities and hours spent. In 1996, she became the coordinator for all SURE Hospital Volunteer efforts, by far our largest Volunteer activity, and reported nearly 11,400 manhours of service by our members. All this while continuing to manage the SURE office at the Westinghouse Building, recruit Volunteers for both the office and area hospitals, and coordinate the newsletter mailings. Over the years, Agnesí selfless efforts resulted in the recruitment of more than 150 SURE members to SURE's Hospital Volunteers Program, providing over 180,000 man-hours of service since SURE began keeping detailed records in 1996. Today, SURE members can be found in over a dozen of the area's Hospitals and Nursing Homes. It is impossible to estimate the number of patients whose days were brightened by the efforts of Agnes Sink and the myriad of SURE members she recruited to serve those in need. Agnes Sink truly lived her life dedicated to helping others, and raised the bar for all of us. Her contributions were recognized internally at SURE, but she also received national attention as the recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Award for her many contributions in Volunteerism. Agnes was predeceased by her husband Victor G. Sink; she is survived by two daughters and their spouses, as well as three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Jim Sunday notified us that he received an e-mail from Shirley Roll saying that Joe Roll had recently died at the age of 86. I searched online and found Joe's obituary in the Las Vegas Review Journal. Below is a copy of that obituary. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Shirley on the loss of her husband. Thank you to Jim Sunday for providing the information to us so we can notify those who worked with Joe at Astronuclear...Anna Marie 11/3/2014.

Note from Anna Marie: Some of you may not have heard, but Ray Malinchak was hit by a car on Lysle Boulevard in McKeesport...I believe it was in early Fall of 2010. His injuries were quite serious and after hospitalization, he went to a rehab center (I hope my memory serves me right that this is how it went. The article about his accident appeared in the McKeesport Daily News, but I couldn't find it when I did a search. This morning (12/23), Carolyn Peat sent me the following e-mail from Ray. I thought many of you who remember Ray would be interested in his recovery progress.

Folks: Just a short note to let you know that my surgeon cleared me to full weight bearing status yesterday. I was able to take a few steps in his office with his assistance. There was no pain at all from the pelvis repair, but I did experience some pain in both knees. It will be a few weeks of limited physical and occupation therapy to walk again. I have been at home since November 26 and will be treated for therapy as an out patient at a White Oak clinic. Have a Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday Season - stay safe! [above from Ray Malinchak sent 12/15/2010].

Published in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on 4/17/2010. BUCKMAN, RAYMOND W. "BILL", JR. Age 79, of Pleasant Hills, went to be with the Lord on April 16, 2010. Devoted and beloved husband of Norma C. (Caldwell) for 55 years; loving and caring father of Raymond (Lori) Buckman III, Cindy (Larry) Roberts, Gregory (Tricia) Buckman and Michael (Nancy) Buckman; loving "Grandpa Bill" to 12 grandchildren and 1 great- grandchild; brother of Harriet Eads. Bill also had a very distinguished professional career. His career began with Bell Aircraft. After several years he joined Westinghouse. He worked on a proposal to NASA for a nuclear rocket that was to be used to explore the outer planets Westinghouse won that contract and Bill was one of the first employees of a new division formed to build the NERVA reactors Eleven were built and tested in Nevada. This project was a magnificent technical achievement. After the NERVA project Bill's Materials Depart- ment worked on energy related projects including wind turbines, fuel cells and solar. Above and beyond these projects, Bill's continuing focus was on refractory metals. The group he managed invented alloys still in use today. If they didn't invent the alloys, they characterized them so that others could use them. A recurring theme in Bill's work was to define the way alloys could be successfully used. A friend of Bill's managed a laboratory at Wright Patterson Airfield Base, which was and still is devoted to metals de- velopment for the Air Force. After leaving Westinghouse after some 30 years of service, Bill formed a consulting company, Refractory Metals Technologies, and continued working on bringing practical solutions to materials challenges. Bill's name is on a final project for a patent for a new type of medical stent. Shortly before he passed he said "my career has gone from outer space to inner space." The facility that Bill created at Westing- house's Large plant still functions as a materials business. As a small tribute to Bill, the library will be known as the Bill Buckman Library. It is fitting that Bill's work will be available to today's metallurgists who are looking for solutions. In addition, Bill was a member of the Lion's Club, Pleasant Hills Civil Service Commission, and an active member of the Pleasant Hills Community Presbyterian Church. Visitation will be on Monday 6-8pm and Tuesday 2-4 and 6-8pm at the JEFFERSON MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME, INC., 301 Curry Hollow Rd., Pleasant Hills. A service will be held on Wednesday at 10am at the Pleasant Hills Community Presbyterian Church. Interment Jefferson Memorial Park.

As reported in the March 2002 issue of the Westinghouse SURE newsletter, Carl P. Saalbach, Upper St. Clair, Retired from Energy Center, Died 12/24/2001.


In 1966, I joined Westinghouse Astronuclear after having worked in aerospace in New Mexico and California for six or seven years. When my wife Linda and I moved our young family to Pittsburgh, we anticipated staying a few years then going back out west. Twenty years later, our four sons were young adults, and I was still at Large!

During those two decades, we grew to love Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania, its culture, people and vitality. In an otherwise mobile career, it was a privilege to work at Astro & AESD with so many fine people and to contribute to a number of challenging aerospace, bioengineering and energy programs. Also, being able to live in the same home and raise our family in a stable community meant a lot; it was a great time of life.

Recently, I bought a copy of the book of Western Pennsylvania aerial photos, "Days of Sweet Remembrance," published by the Post-Gazette. If you haven't seen it, I recommend it highly.....Godspeed and best regards to all, G.H. (Gerry) Parker (still with beard), Wolf Laurel Resort, Madison County, NC.
