Stanley "Ruby" Wroblewski, 91, of Espy Street, Hanover section of Nanticoke passed away Friday afternoon, January 25, 2013 surrounded by his loving family.

Born on November 1, 1921 in Glen Lyon he was a son of the late Chester and Mary Shipp Wroblewski.

Ruby took a tremendous amount of pride in our military. He was a WWII Veteran having served with the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats in the Pacific Theater of Operations. Risking it all, he took the chance to serve side by side with his brother Ray on a 10 hour bombing mission. It was surly his positive attitude and dedication to getting the job done right that made that perilous mission a success for two brothers and our country.

On November 20, 1948 he married the love of his life, and best friend the former Eleanor Sokol. Ruby and Eleanor shared over 60 years of happiness building a loving family together. Ruby admired and took such great pride in his family, and they meant the world to him. It is safe to say his family was everything to him.

Ruby was employed at Eberhard Faber in Mountain Top for 14 years.

In 1972 he and his wife Eleanor established Ruby's Inn, on Espy Street in the Hanover section of Nanticoke

After a hard day's work Ruby loved enjoying a drink with his customers, and always had a smile on his face. He took great pride in making every experience a good one at Ruby's Inn, and genuinely enjoyed every second of it. Ruby worked side by side with his son Jim. Ruby and Jim were not only father and son, they were also best friends. Ruby taught his son everything he needed to know to follow in his footsteps and taught him well. Up until Ruby's final days he was a permanent fixture at his establishment. Ruby will be missed by each and every one of his customers, all of which he considered to be family.

Ruby was a simple man with simple ways. He believed hard work never came easy but love did. A kind word, a gentle smile, or a simple hello was no effort for him. Ruby loved and cared about every person that he met. He simply enjoyed being kind.

He was a member of St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church, Hanover section of Nanticoke; a former member of American Legion Post # 350 Nanticoke; the Alden Rod and Gun Club and Untied Citizens Club, Hanover section of Nanticoke.

He was the last member of his immediate family, being preceded in death by his sister, Ceil and brothers, Raymond, Alfred, Joseph, as well as several brothers and sisters- in-law.

Surviving is his wife of 64 years, Eleanor; a son, James and his wife Judy, Pittston; grandchildren, Nicole Wroblewski, Pittston, Kim Colleran and husband, Michael, Pittston Township, Michele Wroblewski and fiancé, J D Alberola, Nanticoke, great grandchildren; Giavonna, Abbylynn and Mya ; several nieces, nephews , and great nieces and nephews who he loved and adored; and several brothers and sisters-in-law.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday from 4 – 8 p.m. at Davis-Dinelli Funeral Home, 170 East Broad Street, Nanticoke.
