Yakaski, Robert - Plains Township  
Robert Yakaski, 64, of the Hudson section of Plains Township, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014, in Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township. Chester and Celia Kosieroski Yakaski welcomed their son Robert to the world on April 20, 1950. Robert was an only child, but had many cousins whom he enjoyed growing up with. He attended local school in Plains Township, and was a graduate of Plains Memorial High School, Class of 1968. Robert attended a trade school and was ready to start his professional employment after two years. In 1960, Robert met Mr. Thomas S. Czekalski, owner of Northern Commercial Refrigeration Service, located in Hudson. Mr. Czekalski right away saw the brilliance in Robert and hired him. Over the years, the two became great friends and later business partners. As Robert worked, if he did not have a tool, he would invent one to make working easier. He was very good with electricity and the mechanics of how things worked. Robert's genius led to the U.S. Patent No. 5,319,940 for his designs in refrigeration systems in 1994. In 1998, after 50 years of service to his company, Mr. Czekalski retired and passed his business on to now his dear partner and friend, Robert. In the past few years, Robert helped to expand the business. He enjoyed the work, his clients, and the employees who worked beside him. The business was his life. Robert will be remembered for having a great sense of humor, big heart, his wild hair, "having the genius behind the madness" as his employees stated, having great parties at the Polish American Veterans, Hudson, and for being a great conversationalist. He was a great man, friend and will be missed. Robert was preceded in death by his parents, Chester and Celia; and his devoted partner and friend, Thomas Czekalski. Surviving Robert are his aunts, uncles, cousins, his devoted employees and friends. Funeral services will be held at 9 a.m. Monday, Dec. 1, from Yanaitis Funeral Home Inc., 55 Stark St., Plains Township. A Mass with the Rite of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 9:30 a.m. in Ss. Peter and Paul Church, 13 Hudson Road, Plains Township. Interment will be held in the parish cemetery, Plains Township. Friends and family may call at the funeral home from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Robert's name can be made to a charity of your choice. Condolences and directions can be accessed atwww.yanaitisfuneralhome.com .
