Don Maurey, three-time Pennsylvania state champ, Penn State wrestler, passes

Don Maurey, three-time PIAA (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association) wrestling champion for Clearfield High School who also earned an EIWA (Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association) title and NCAA All-America honors at Penn State, has died. He passed away Saturday, Dec. 1 in Hollidaysburg, Pa. at age 88.

Donald L. Maurey was born on Oct. 12, 1930 in Clearfield, Pa. to Edward and Floyd (Beers) Maurey. He was part of a wrestling family which included older brother Jim (1945 PIAA champ who went on to coach at Millersville State Teachers' College) and younger brother Jerry (four-time PIAA champ in 1947-50 who coached at Clearfield High).

Don Maurey
Don Maurey wrestled for the late, legendary coach Art Weiss at Clearfield High School, where he was a four-time PIAA finalist, placing second at 112 pounds in 1946, then earning three PIAA state titles at 120 pounds in 1946 and 1947, and at 127 pounds in 1948 after placing second at the 1945 state finals.

After graduating from Clearfield, Don Maurey enrolled at Penn State, where he wrestled for yet another coaching icon, Charlie Speidel, in the early 1950s. Maurey won the 137-pound crown at the 1951 EIWA Championships, and earned All-American honors at the 1951 NCAA Championships in the same weight class. While at Penn State, Don Maurey compiled a 26-7-1 record, with 8 falls.

"The name Maurey is legendary in Pennsylvania wrestling history," Tom Elling, historian for wrestling in the Keystone State, told InterMat. "Don was a humble man, never bragged. He loved to talk wrestling but would have a listening ear in any and every discussion."

Beyond his accomplishments in wrestling, Don Maurey served in the U.S. Air Force, then had a long career with John Hill Realty.

Maurey is survived by a son, Stephen E. Maurey of Altoona, Pa. (who was a 1974 PIAA state champ for Altoona High); a daughter, Susan M. Katz of Altoona; three grandchildren: Courtney Piper of Orlando, Fla., Anna Shaw of New Kent, Va., and David Katz of Arlington, Va.; and two brothers: James (Jim) Maurey of Lancaster, Pa. and Gerald (Jerry) Maurey of Tallahassee, Fla. He was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, the former Patricia Robinson, and their son, Ashley G. Maurey.

Visitation and funeral service will both take place Saturday, Dec. 8 at E. Merrill Smith Funeral Home, 2309 Broad Ave., Altoona, with the Rev. Douglas McGaffin officiating. Friends will be received from 10 a.m. until the funeral service which begins at noon.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions in Don's memory be made to Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675-8517.
