CANFIELD – Paul N. Wargacki, 52, died early Saturday morning, June 15, 2013, at St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown after a short battle with cancer.

He is survived by his wife, the former Tammy Pyles, whom he married Sept. 11, 1982; his mother, Stella Wargacki of Canfield; a daughter, Stefania (Josh) Bauman of Canfield; a son, Jake (Kori) Wargacki of Perrysburg; a sister, Glenda (Rick) Culp of Canfield; a brother, David Wargacki of Canfield; and two grandchildren, Josiah and Eden Bauman.

He was preceded in death by his father, Frank Wargacki, and a brother, Jim Wargacki.
