John A. Cieczko, 67, of Plymouth, died Wednesday in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital with his family by his side.
He was born in Wilkes-Barre, son of the late John and Eleanor Cinaglia Cieczko. John worked as a mason for most of his life. He also worked for Pete Broody Tire for about 10 years, and retired last year from Wilkes-Barre General as a dispatcher.
John was a jokester and had a great sense of humor; he always had a line for every situation. He loved to fish and hunt, and he enjoyed wildlife and watching many outdoor shows on television. He was deeply loved and will be greatly missed. His grandchildren were the apples of his eye.
Besides his parents, John was preceded in death by his brother, Joseph Cieczko.
He is survived by his wife, the former Carol Kachurak; daughters, Tammy Evans and her husband, Steven, Edwardsville, Tracy Kuharcik and her husband, Frank, Larksville, and Tara Cieczko and her fiancé, Michael Dunsmuir, Plymouth; grandchildren, Thomas Evans, Jordyn Kuharcik and Tiernan Dunsmuir; and nieces, nephews and a cousin.
Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday from the Kopicki Funeral Home, 263 Zerbey Ave. Kingston. Friends may call from 1 to 3 p.m.
