Allan C. Haas, 70, of Pittston, passed away Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017, while vacationing in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Born Sept. 25, 1947, he was the son of the late Joseph and Julia Jones Haas.

Allan was a graduate of Pittston High School, Class of 1966. Following high school, Allan enlisted into the U.S. Air Force in 1966, achieving a rank of staff sergeant prior to his honorable discharge in 1970. Following his time in the service, he was employed for more than 40 years by Cascades Tissue Group.

He was a member of Our Lady of the Eucharist Parish, Pittston, Plains American Legion Post 558, Pittston American Legion Post 477, PACE Local Union 2-1448 and held many union offices for several years.

Allan loved the game of golf and spoke fondly about his years as a caddy at Fox Hill Country Club. He enjoyed the company of his friends and could often be found at local social clubs shooting pool or playing cards. As the youngest of a large family of brothers and sisters, Allan valued the companionship of his siblings and his many nieces and nephews.

Above all, Allan was most proud of his role as "Poppy" to JoJo and Jillian. A visit to the house would always begin with "Poppy's here!" and include a board game or a friendly game of cards. He referred to himself as JoJo's "#1 Fan," never missing the "little guy's" baseball games. Poppy thoroughly enjoyed traveling with his daughter to watch many of JoJo's hockey games and tournaments. He loved spending time with Jillian and never missed any of her games, recitals or activities. Poppy had a unique way of making her smile with his humor, quirky tricks, and surprising her with a special trinket each time he saw her.

He will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him.

In addition to his parents, Allan was preceded in death by his brothers, Raymond, Robert and James Haas, and sisters, Margaret Larnerd and Dorothy Haas. He was also preceded in death by an infant brother and infant sister.

Surviving are his son, John Haas and his wife, Jennifer, Yatesville; daughter, Carol Haas-Mariotti, Old Forge; grandchildren, Joseph Mariotti and Jillian Haas; brother, William, Inkerman; sisters, Joan Tilley, Exeter; Ann Haas, Harding; and Ruth Shannon, Pittston; former wife, Carol, Duryea; and numerous nieces and nephews.
