Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Karl Zuzel, age 76, of the Greenwood section of Moosic, passed away Friday at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center. He is survived by the love of his life and best friend, Denise (Saranchuk) Zuzel. The couple were married on July 28, 2007.
Born in Lewisburg on May 8, 1943, and son of the late John and Eleanor (Berk) Zuzel, Karl was a graduate of Hanover Area High School, Class of 1961. A bus driver for the Luzerne County Transportation Authority, Karl retired after 40 years of service.
Active with so many things, Karl was an avid fisherman, hunter and gardener. He enjoyed the outdoors and always held fond memories of his time spent at the family cabin in Towanda. He played the accordian, was an excellent woodworker and craftsman, and he never passed up at opportunity to pay a visit to the casino. A lifelong dog owner, he adored his four pups. He was a playful joker, and his love for others, especially for his family, was undeniable. He will never be forgotten.
He is also survived by his loving daughter, Janet Burke and husband Kevin of Hanover Twp.; his mother-in-law, Stella Saranchuk of Moosic; his brother, John Zuzel of Pendleton, Oregon; his step-children, Sara Smith of Moosic, Michael Snyder and fiance Linda of Taylor, Adam Snyder and Datchnie of Pittston and Matthew Snyder of Pittston; seven step-grandchildren and nieces and nephews.
Also preceding him in death was his first wife, Ann Marie (Savner) Zuzel on June 8, 2004; and two step-grandchildren.
A blessing service is scheduled for Tuesday at 10:00AM at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge. Burial will follow at Oak Lawn Cemetery in Wilkes Barre.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Monday between 4-7:00PM at the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made in Karl’s name to the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter c/o 967 Griffin Pond Rd, South Abington Township, PA 18411.
