On Wednesday evening, Sept. 12, 2018, Harold F. "Harry" Bobos lost his hard fought, courageous battle with colon cancer and complications from lung disease in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.

Born Oct. 2, 1963, Harry was the son of Harold and Pauline Bobos of Nanticoke. He graduated from Nanticoke Area High School in 1981 and attended Luzerne County Community College. Harry was a certified master auto technician at Motorworld Auto Group for 27 years.

He enjoyed working, hunting, riding his motorcycle, auctions, being outdoors, the Dallas Cowboys, rock and roll music, but most of all, his greatest love was his family. His wife and children were his world; he especially loved to watch his children play sports and achieve all their goals and accomplishments.

Harry spent numerous years coaching girls softball at Ashley/Hanover Babe Ruth, Hanover Area junior varsity softball, and most recently, keeping the score book for Hanover Area varsity softball. He was also a devoted fan of Meyers football and Morgan State softball.

He is preceded in death by his mother, the former Pauline Myszka.

Surviving are his beautiful wife, Nancy, with whom he would have celebrated 23 years of marriage on Sunday; his children, Corey, Haylee and Emilee, who he adored; sisters, Debbie Vanderhoff and husband, Bruce; and Carol Kachmarsky; father, Harold Bobos; numerous nieces and nephews; and his faithful buddies - "I will miss them" - Chance, Lulu and Halo.

"I want to say goodbye to all of my friends."

Harry wanted people to know that he wrote his own obituary on the day of his cancer diagnosis, and he leaves his family and close friends with one word, "patience."

Funeral services will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Monday from George A. Strish Inc. Funeral Home, 105 N. Main St., Ashley. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. in St. Leo's Holy Rosary Church, 33 Manhattan St., Ashley. Interment will be in St. Mary's Cemetery, Hanover Twp. Friends and family are invited to call from 5 to 8 p.m. Sunday and from 9 a.m. until the service on Monday, at the funeral home.

Special thanks to Dr. Fraeyer and the ICU nursing staff at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital and Dr. Joshua Diamond at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
