Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
David Gleason, age 63, of North Abington Twp. and formerly of Moosic, passed away on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at Geisinger CMC.
Born in Scranton on September 8, 1958, Dave was the son of Aileen Gleason of Moosic and the late Rev. Stanley “Pop Pop” Gleason. A 1976 graduate of Riverside High School, he remained involved with his fellow classmates. Upon graduation he immediately began working in his family’s business, Gleason Kitchens, Inc., and he would remain involved in the cabinetry business that he loved, his entire life.
Dave loved sports, animals (his cat Odie), and loved to laugh and make others laugh as well. In his youth he loved playing basketball having also served as a youth basketball coach for the Moosic Youth Center. He also possessed a passion for travel, always speaking very fondly of his time spent in the British Isles.
If one word defined Dave, it was resilient. His strong will and determination led him to hurdle whatever he faced and defined his character. Certainly taken too soon, he will never be forgotten.
Dave was kind, caring and empathetic to everyone. Above all else, he adored his family, especially his grandchildren.
He is also survived by his wife, whom he married in 1978, Leslie Gleason; his children, Derek Gleason and wife Sarah of Clarks Summit, Laura Kurilla and husband Steve of Peckville and Lacie Walker and husband Jim of Clarks Summit; his three grandchildren, LoreLei, Clementine, and Willow; his brother, John Gleason and wife Nancy of Moosic; and nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Dave’s Life is scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd, at Moosic Alliance Community Church, Rocky Glen Road in Avoca, to be conducted by Rev. Erik Ferguson, Pastor. Family and friends may pay their respects on Saturday from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
