Bernard J. Roedel Jr., 46, a resident of Hawley, died Sunday evening at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore.

Born in Scranton, he was the son of Bernard Sr. and Helen Holland Roedel, Scranton. He was a member of St. Paul of the Cross Parish and was a graduate of Scranton Technical High School, where he excelled in athletics. He was employed by the United States Postal Service, where he was a dedicated employee who worked until his illness forced him to stop. He enjoyed the Father-Son Bowling League at South Side Lanes and the Post 948 Legion hardball.

Birney was an amazing father, one-of-a-kind brother and an awesome son. He put everyone before himself and he will be deeply missed.

Also surviving are his children, Bernard J. Roedel III and Katherine Roedel; a brother, Joseph Roedel and wife, Joann; two nieces, Georgina and Hannah; and a nephew, Parker Roedel; and the mother of his children, Sharon Kestler, all of Lake Ariel.
