Robert (Bob) Flannery, age 76, of Taylor, died Thursday morning at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart Inpatient Unit, Dunmore. He is survived by his beloved wife, Sandra Wanas Flannery. Wed on November 6, 1971, the couple recently celebrated their 44th anniversary.
Born in Scranton on January 28, 1939, son of the late Robert, Sr., and Regina Rahner Flannery, Bob was a graduate of the former Scranton Technical High School, Class of 1956. A Veteran of the U.S. Navy, he earned the good Conduct medal for his service. Prior to retirement, he worked for Northeastern Envelope in Old Forge.
A member of the V.F.W. Post #25, he was also an avid reader who loved crossword puzzles. Bob was the patriarch of his family, while possessing both the ‘gift of gab’ and memorable joke-telling humor. The family historian, it was always a given that Bob would have the answer to family
genealogy questions. Spending time with his family meant the world to him especially celebrating a shared Super Bowl birthday party with his niece, Marilyn McGinnis and attending his granddaughter’s dance recitals each year.
Passing away peacefully, he will be dearly missed.
Of Roman Catholic faith, he was a member of Saint Ann’s Basilica Parish.
He is also survived by his children, Robert Flannery and Cathleen Wasalinko and husband Alex, all of Scranton; two grandchildren, Alex Bridgette and Ethan Wasalinko; and nieces and nephews.
Sisters, Jean Verduce and Margaret (Peg) Martin, also preceded him in death.
His family would like to express its gratitude to the entire staff of Sacred Heart for their wonderful care, as well as Bob’s neighbors for their amazing support throughout Bob’s illness.
A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for Monday at 10:00AM at St. Ann Basilica, 1239 St. Ann Street, West Scranton. Interment with military honors by the AMVETS Honor Guard will follow at the Cathedral Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the donor’s choice.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
