The youngest son of Vincenzo and Rose Iorio Pica, he was preceded in death by his parents and his two brothers; Father Amodio (Elmer) Pica, Pastor of St. Michael Roman Catholic Church in St. Michael, PA, and Dr. Vincent B.

Donald was extremely proud of his Italian heritage and taught us many useful sayings in his Neapolitan dialect. He was born and lived in the same house in Chambersburg for 90 years. Donald treasured his family, and that value drove many of his life’s decisions. He cared for his mother all during her life. He cherished his mother and brothers. He treated his nieces and nephew as if they were his own children. He loved animals, especially his beloved childhood dog, Champ. Donald is survived by his five nieces and nephew: Mary Rose Pica (John Griffin), V.
