George Anthony Munster, 61, of Sylvan Lake lost his brave battle with cancer on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, in his family's loving arms.

He was a graduate of Wyoming Valley West High School.

As a child, he worked on a tomato farm, and then continued on to sell shoes at J.S. Raub. Next, he worked at a series of family-run dress factories, including Camile and Sara Fashions. He then went to Offset Paperback, and was a bartender at night at Kunius Café. His thirst for life and people led him to drive tractor-trailer cross-country for TRL, Applehouse and PL Lawton. With his family, George branched out as an owner-operator of the Jim-Mill Tavern. He was also employed by Alliance Landfill and Dombrinski Brothers, where he made lifelong friendships. George's wit and unique sense of humor attracted many friends throughout the years.

Trying to describe this memorable father, grandfather, husband, brother, son and friend is an impossible task. He will never be forgotten and will always be loved, whether it be at work or sitting on the waterfront. He recently became a member of the American Legion in Dallas, which he sadly did not get to enjoy, and was a longtime member of the Sylvan Lake Association.

He was preceded in death by his father, George Francis Munster, and mother-in-law and father-in-law, Thomas and Betty James, who loved him dearly.

Missing him are his wife, Diane E. Munster; his daughter, Adrienne E. Munster-Pollock; his grandchildren, Brianna E. Pollock, Elyssa M. Pollock, B.J. Pollock and Anthony Pollock; extended family, Douglas Pomfret and Christopher Lockavich; his mother, Sally Carey; his sister, Susan Krispin, and brother-in-law, Len Krispin; brothers, Joe Munster, Michael Munster, Paul Munster, Andrew Munster and Daniel Munster; nieces, Alyssa Piazza and Sandra Custodio; and nephews, Chase Krasniak and Steven Munster.

Memorial services will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday at Clarke Piatt Funeral Home Inc., 6 Sunset Lake Road, Hunlock Creek, with the Rev. Terry Hughes officiating. Visiation will be at the funeral home from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
