Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Derek Knorr, age 49, of Taylor, passed away Wednesday at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton after a resilient battle with illness. He is survived by his loving wife and caregiver who never left his side, Dana (Harris) Knorr.
Born on March 7, 1972, and raised in West Pittston, Derek was the son of Douglas Knorr and wife Marcia of Plains Twp. and the late Irene (Hastie) Knorr who preceded Derek in death on April 23rd.
A graduate of Wyoming Area High School before attending Wilkes University, he had served as a supervisor for Core-Mark International in Wilkes Barre prior to his illness. Possessing strong faith in God, Derek was a member of the Servant Church of the Abingtons in Clarks Green.
Derek enjoyed singing, especially at church, and he was a sports fanatic who loved the New York Mets and the Pittsburgh Steelers. His knack for making others smile was amazing and he’ll long be remembered as a joker possessing an awesome sense of humor. Above all else came his family, especially his grandson Cameron who absolutely adored his “Pop”.
Now at peace, Derek will forever be loved and never forgotten.
He is also survived by his children, Derek Knorr of Hanover Twp., Kiersten Knorr of Exeter, Ashley Harris of Scranton, Christopher Felts and wife Morgan of Newton Twp. and Ali Felts and longtime companion Bill Burgerhoff of Taylor; and his grandson, Cameron Harris.
Funeral services are scheduled for Tuesday at 10:00 AM in the Servant Church of the Abingtons, 204 South Abington Road, Clarks Green, to be celebrated by Rev. Dan Miller, Pastor. Burial will follow at the Cathedral Cemetery in West Scranton.
Those attending the funeral are asked to go directly to church.
Family and friends may pay their respects on Monday at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, from 4-7:00 PM.
