Leonard Getz

The Guest Book is expired.

Leonard "Lenny" Getz, 65, of Scranton, died Tuesday night at home after an illness. His wife of 32 years is the former Marylyn Griffiths.

Born in Peckville, son of the late Elmer and Julia Watso Getz, he was educated in Scranton Technical High School and was employed for many years as a carpet installer for Tommy Cruise & Sons. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather who enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, but his greatest joy was being an avid Dallas Cowboys fan and spending time with his dog and best friend "Baxter."

The family would like to thank the staff at Commonwealth Hospice for their wonderful and dignified care.

Also surviving are two sons, Robert and wife, Michele Getz, Old Forge; and Stephen and fiancée, Melissa Young, Scranton; a daughter, Rebekah Burns and husband, Todd, Houston, Texas; a granddaughter, Tabitha; and a grandson, Logan.

He was also preceded in death by his brother, Robert Getz.

There are no calling hours. Services will be private and at the convenience of the family. Arrangements by the John J. Turko & Sons Funeral Home, Olyphant.
