Paul Joseph Beretsky, 63, of Kingston died Monday, April 7, 2014, in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
He was the son of the late Nicholas F. Jr. and Adeline Irene Kravulski Beretsky. Paul was a graduate of Wyoming Valley West High School, Class of 1968.
A native of Larksville, Paul lived in Kingston for most of his life. Immediately after graduation Paul began working for Techneglas, Jenkins Township, retiring after more than 35 years with the company. Following his retirement he was employed as a courier by the Intermountain Medical Group and Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
He was lovingly known as "The Mayor" by his family and friends because no matter where he went he would meet someone who knew him. Paul loved having a "couple two-tree" PBR's while watching Penn State and Pittsburgh Steelers football. He was lovably stubborn and always willing to offer unsolicited advice.
Preceding him in death, in addition to his parents, were his wife, the former Sondra Lee Stanley; brother, Nicholas F. Beretsky III; and aunt, Blodwyn Kravulski.
Surviving are his daughter, Summer Bukeavich and husband, Jason, South Williamsport; fiancée, Jocelyn Bernatovich, Kingston; sister-in-law, Jane Beretsky, Larksville; nieces, Karen Beretsky and Jane Beretsky; and nephew, Nicholas Beretsky IV.
Friends may call from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Harold C. Snowdon Funeral Home Inc., 140 N. Main St., Shavertown. Interment will be made in Memorial Shrine Park, Carverton.
