My sympathies to the his family. Such a nice guy. Will miss seeing him in the neighborhood.



Very sorry for your loss. Prayers and thoughts for the family and friends.



So sorry for your loss. He was always a kind and happy man. I just ran into him a few months ago at Aldi’s in Pittston. He drove himself there to pick up a few items that he needed. We had a nice chat and I watched as he drove away. Pretty amazing!! Rest In Peace Zip.
