David N. Vermack

David N. Vermack, “Divid,” 56, of Old Forge and formerly of Avoca, died unexpectedly at home on Monday, April 13, 2020.

Born in Scranton, he was a son of the late John M. and Jeanette P. (Howarth) Vermack. He was a graduate of Pittston Area High School and was employed by MTF Biologics, Jessup as a donor login coordinator.

David was a member of the West Side Social Club and American Legion, both of Avoca as well as a founding member of ‘The Squirrel’s Nest’ hunting cabin, Dushore.

David was an avid fisherman, having mounted and displayed many of his prized catches in his home. He was also a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates fan, often making annual treks out to games with his Avoca crew of friends. He was a friend to many and an enemy to none and will be remembered for his humor and personality.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brother-in-law, Michael Regan and sister-in-law, Michalene “Mickey” Vermack.

Surviving are sisters, Paula Regan and companion John Mickiewicz, Avoca and Jennifer Menichini, Scranton; brothers, Michael and wife Judy, Taylor, John and companion Denise Shields, Lake Ariel, Joseph, Avoca, and George and wife Helene, West Pittston; nieces Abbigail Menichini, Ashley Menichini, and Nicole Davis; nephews, Jeffrey Romanecz, Stephen Romanecz, George Vermack, Ryan Vermack, and Kyle Vermack; a great-niece and great-nephews, and numerous cousins.

A private burial service will be held at the Langcliffe Cemetery, Avoca with the Rev. Phillip Sladicka officiating. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a memorial service will be held at a later date.

Arrangements are by Kiesinger Funeral Services, Inc., 255 McAlpine St., Duryea.
