He proudly attended their softball, basketball and volleyball games when they attended John S. Fine High School, Nanticoke, and entertained them singing old-time songs. He leaves behind his brother, Raymond, Hunlock Creek; and sister, Paulette Blockus, Nanticoke.

His sister, Lucille Gorka, is also deceased.

A funeral Mass will be held at 11:30 a.m. Saturday in St. Faustina Parish, 520 S. Hanover St., Nanticoke, .
