Born Aug. 4, 1953, in Kingston, he was the son of Helene Lazar Brdaric and the late John (Butch) Sr.

He was the owner/operator of Brdaric Excavating Co. He was president of the Bunker Hill Outlaws. His passion was driving snowmobiles, Harleys and RZRs.

He was preceded in death, besides his father, by his companion of 10 years, Lou Anne Evans.

Surviving are his children, Jamie and husband, Bryan Fedor, and John and wife, Carrie, both of Kingston Township; grandchildren, Colbie and Brooklyn Brdaric and Ashlyn Wilson; former wife, Nancy Brdaric; extended grand-family, Maddi Evans, Plains Township; Brynlee O'Boyle, Luzerne; and also his dog, Tyler.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Friday in Holy Family Parish, Luzerne, with the Rev. Michael Zipay officiating.

Interment will be in Mount Olivet Cemetery, Kingston Township.

Family and friends are to meet with the family from 3 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the church. The family requests that friends go right to the church on Friday morning.
