Gary Carmen Obituary

Gary Carmen, 61, of South Park, passed away on November 22 after a courageous battle with a fourth bout of cancer that began at the age of 21. Gary Carmen was born on August 4, 1962 to Fred and Ida Carmen from  Bethel Park. After Gary graduated from Bethel Park High School in 1980, he worked with his father in their family business “Fred Carmen and Son Custom Home Builders” established in 1957.  Following his father’s death in 2003 he continued the family business until November of  2023. Gary loved working in construction and never retired. He spent time outside of this job as a classic car enthusiast along with occasional small game hunting.  He also enjoyed seeing his children participate in sports and being actively involved as a father, step grandfather and stepfather.  During Gary’s last year of life, he founded the #Garystrong Annual Classic Car Show that had its inaugural show in October 2023 at the Highpoint Fitness Center in Bethel Park where all of the proceeds went to St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital. Gary was predeceased by his parents, Fred and Ida Carmen, his son, Tanner and his sister-in-law Sally Carmen.  He is survived by his wife, Joan Cunic-Carmen, his children Colton and Danielle (Josh) Peterson, brother Tom (Laurie) Carmen, sister Sandy (Zeb) Jansante, his step children Helen Banai (Derek Ewing), Joanie (Chuckie) Trax, Stephanie (Derek) Prins, and Zachary (Brittany) Banai, grandsons Samuel and Grant Banai, Luke Trax, Wesley Prins and many nieces and nephews.
