On Saturday, May 21, 2022, we lost Triangle Tool’s and Plastek’s founder Joe Prischak.
He was a tremendous husband, father, grand-father, great-grand-father, friend, colleague, and humanitarian that inspired and impacted hundreds of thousands of lives around the world.
He grew up on a nearby farm and came to Erie with only $20 in his pocket before getting a job in the Plastics Industry grinding scrap plastic parts at Erie Resistor in the 1940’s.
He was a genuine, down to earth person who loved his family, his friends, his work, and his extended Plastek family.
His passion, energy, enthusiasm, and love for life showed through in everything he ever did.
We will miss him and be forever grateful for the companies he started, the opportunities he created for so many, and in the case of Africa 6000, the many lives he saved.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
Dennis, Daniel, Douglas, and Donald Prischak
The Plastek Group
