Stephen B. Banick Obituary

Stephen B. Banick, 89, of Dunmore, passed away Monday at his home at 3 p.m. following an illness. Born Feb. 17, 1931, in Dunmore, he was the son of the late Andrew and Pauline Banick.

He attended Dunmore public schools, and served in the United States Navy from 1948 until 1952. Stephen was a humble laborer who was thankful for the gift of life.

Stephen was the oldest parishioner at St. Thomas More Parish in Scranton. He was a devout Catholic who believed it was unthinkable to miss Mass on Sunday. A "cafeteria Catholic" he was not.

Stephen is survived by brothers, Carl, William, and John Joseph; his sister, Mary Hudack; many nieces and nephews; and grandnieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, baby John and Andrew; and his sister, Catherine.

Stephen's family would like to thank Father Eric Bergman and Father Myron Myronuck for their kindness and help. In addition, the family would like to thank Dr. Anees Fogley and his staff; and to Hospice of the Sacred Heart; and Patti and Edie of Telespond.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a funeral Mass will be celebrated at a future date. Committal prayers and interment will be conducted privately at Holy Family Cemetery, Throop, Pa.

Stephen's family suggests friends request offerings of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass from Missionary Orders, for the repose of Stephen's soul.

Arrangements are entrusted to Duffy & Snowdon Funeral Homes of Scranton and Moscow, Pa.
