Louis P. (Uncle Louie) Vos, 90, of Wilkes-Barre passed away Saturday evening, April 12, 2014, at Timber Ridge Health Care Center, Wilkes-Barre. Born in the Hudson section of Plains Township, he was the son of the late George and Angela Revera Vos. He attended Plains Township schools and was an Army veteran of World War II, serving in the Pacific Theatre, attaining the rank of corporal. Louie was employed as a coal miner by the Lehigh Valley Coal Co. for many years and was employed by Craft Associates/Comfort Design as a furniture sander until his retirement. He was a member of Ss. Peter and Paul Church, Plains Township. Uncle Louie, as he was known to all, was a beloved uncle and friend. He dedicated his life to taking care of his family. Those who were blessed to have him in their lives remember many fond memories and have great stories to share about his exploits when left alone to his own devices. He will be remembered for his hard work, his enjoyment of sitting on his swing in the back yard with a warm Stegmaier, his love of the Yankees, Judge Judy, and his ingenious uses for duct tape which became banned from the family home. He taught us that every day could be a good day. His famous saying was "Better days are coming." But most of all, his genuine politeness and constant thank you for the slightest things and that never-ending smile on his face. Thank you Uncle Lou, your better day is here, just keep smiling. We all love you! He was preceded in death by his brothers, Walter, Peter and Joseph Vos, and sisters, Helen Deveraux, Louise Bohac and Josephine Sorokin. Surviving are his brother, John Vos, New York; nieces, Mary Cordaro Fedor, at home; and Ann Bohac, Minnesota; great-nephew, Frank Cordaro, at home; and great-niece, Mari Stolten, Bangor.
