A man from Rush Township was killed in a logging incident on Saturday.

Schuylkill County Coroner David Moylan III said Steve Behun was working with a chainsaw and the tree split and hit him. He said it was a “freak accident”.

Steve’s wife Liz Pinkey posted on Facebook. “Steve was never light in anything, especially as a father.”

The couple have three children.

He loved hunting and wrestling.

Eric James posted on the Tamaqua Knee High Wrestling Association page.

“I don’t know how many of you had the pleasure of meeting Coach Steve Behun. I did and I could tell you what an amazing man and father he was. He was also an excellent coach who cared a lot about the children. He also loved his wife and children more than life and spent so much time loving and teaching his children the ways of the world. The world lost an amazing person and coach yesterday when Steve passed away suddenly. “

His friends remembered him for his sense of humor.

Heather Miller Dunbar wrote: “Steve had a larger than life mind. Her kindness, her love of the outdoors and her love for her family will always be remembered. “

Behun was also involved in the SOS Coal Regions Churches and Schools group, which opposed the Diocese of Allentown’s plan to close Our Lady of the Angels School in Lansford, St. Katharine Drexel Parish in Lansford, and St. Francis of Assisi in Nesquehoning.

Val Horvat posted: “Steve was an amazing soul. When he got involved in saving the church, I was able to witness his passion for something he believed so strongly in. His family and everything they were involved in was his driving force to be better and always learn.
