Henry Joseph Karasch II, died July 14, 2020. He was the husband of 55 years to Linda Karasch. He is also survived by his four children, Henry III, Matthew, Adam, and Mary Lynn and his twelve grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
He was born in Beaver Falls, PA in 1943. He worked as a court reporter in Superior Court, Federal Court, then transitioned to the Chester County Court House before starting his own court reporting business in West Chester, PA in 1980. Seeing the future of a computerized culture, he became the first court reporter in Chester County to transcribe using computers. His business continues today under his son, Adam’s, leadership.
