FREEPORT, Pa. (AP) - Tim Pesci (PAY’-see), a former Democratic state representative from western Pennsylvania, has died. He was 72.

Pesci died Wednesday in his Freeport home, according to the Redmond Funeral Home, which is handling the arrangements.

Pesci spent 20 years as the Armstrong County controller before he ran for Pennsylvania’s 60th District House seat in a special election to succeed Rep. Henry Livengood, who died in office in 1989.

Pesci was defeated in the 2000 election by 25-year-old Republican novice, Jeff Coleman, even though the district, including parts of Armstrong and Indiana counties, was 70 percent Democratic by voter registration.

The funeral home says there will be no public visitation or funeral at Pesci’s request. He’ll be buried in Freeport Cemetery, near his parents, in a private family funeral.
