Charles “Chick” Hebden, Jr., age 59, of Taylor, passed away Friday evening at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, after a longtime illness. He is survived by his beloved wife, Betsy Patton Hebden. The couple celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary on September 22nd.
Born in Scranton on November 19, 1957, son of Charles Hebden, Sr. of Scranton and the late Eleanore Struchko Hebden, Chick was a graduate of Scranton Technical High School, Class of 1975. A lifelong auto repair technician well-known for being one of the best in the business, he was the owner and operator of Chick’s Collision in Moosic. Of strong faith, he served an active role in the Rock Church Worship Center community for many years.
Definitely a “people person”, Chick touched the lives of countless. His positive persona only made those around him better, and his big heart and willingness to help those in need will certainly never be forgotten. From organizing the family camping trips to bringing everyone together for holidays, his family was definitely the focal point of his life. Loved by all who knew him, he will forever be missed.
He is also survived by five children, John Dodge of Old Forge, and Tasha, Charles, III, Richard and Matthew Hebden, all of Taylor; three sisters, Rosalyn McAndrew, Ellen Hebden-Ryan and husband James and Kathy Hebden-Graham and husband Kevin, all of Scranton; his grandson, Nicholas Dodge; and many nieces and nephews.
He was also preceded in death by siblings, Robert and Roberta Hebden.
His family would like to express their gratitude to the amazing staff of G.C.M.C.’s I.C.U. for their tremendous care and compassion throughout Chick’s stay.
A memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, October 14th, at Rock Church Worship Center, Scranton, to be conducted by Rev. Chris Stark, Pastor. Relatives and friends may pay their respects at the church on Saturday from 6:00PM until services.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Chick’s name to Rock Church Worship Center, 530 Morgan Highway, Scranton, Pa., 18508.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
