Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Conrad Thiel, age 30, of Taylor, tragically died shortly after midnight on New Year’s Day at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, due to trauma suffered in an automobile accident.
Born on September 17, 1987, he was the son of Deborah Kilvitis Thiel of Old Forge and John Thiel, Sr., and wife Patricia of Kingston. Raised in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, he graduated from West Scranton High School, Class of 2006. Having his Class A commercial driver’s license, he was employed as a rigger for Lane’s Crane Service in Moosic.
Of strong Roman Catholic faith, Conrad was a member of Saint Ann’s Basilica Parish, West Scranton. An avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing, some of his fondest memories came while being at the family cabin at White Deer Lake. He adored animals, but none more so than his dog “Scrappy”, who preceded him in death only two months ago. Above all, however, was his family. His parents, siblings, grandma, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and dear friends meant the world to him. Taken from his loved ones much too soon, he’ll long be missed.
He is also survived by his siblings, Danielle Thiel and Chris Spears of Port St. Lucie, Florida, Dana Thiel and Robert Smith of Wilmington, N.C., Stephanie Thiel and Brian O’Hara of Taylor, Jacqueline Davis and husband James of Taylor and John Thiel, Jr., and wife Patricia of Moosic; his paternal grandmother, Esther Hahn Thiel of Moosic; four nieces and a fifth on her way; three nephews; and many aunts and uncles.
A paternal grandfather, John R. Thiel; and maternal grandparents, Margaret McCloskey and Joseph Kilvitis, also preceded him in death.
A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for Saturday at 10:00AM at St. Ann’s Basilica, 1233 St. Ann St., Scranton. Interment will be private and those attending the Mass are asked to go directly to the church.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Friday between 4-7:00PM at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
