Paul P. Prislupsky, Jr., age 84 and a lifelong Taylor resident, passed away peacefully early Friday morning at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 53 years, Marie F. Gatto Prislupsky, on March 2, 2012.
Born on August 24, 1934, and son of the late Paul, Sr., and Edith Zuby Prislupsky, Paul was a graduate of the former Taylor High School, Class of 1952. He proudly served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War prior to his honorable discharge in 1958. He was awarded the Good Conduct Medal for his service.
He retired as an inspector for the United States Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.) and upon his retirement he worked for Geisinger VitaLine. A die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan, he enjoyed hunting, fishing and his weekly T.G.I.F. lunches with his sister-in-law, Anita Gatto. Reunited with Marie, he’s now at peace.
He was also a member of St. Mary’s Byzantine Catholic Church, Taylor.
He is survived by his daughter, Patricia Amity and husband Joseph of Taylor and Paul A. Prislupsky of Olyphant; five grandchildren; siblings, Joseph, David and Robert Prislupsky and Gloria Joyce; and many nieces and nephews.
His brother, John Prislupsky, also preceded him in death.
Paul’s family would like to thank his dearest friends at the Taylor Deli for reserving “his table” daily while always treating him like family.
Funeral services by Rev. Eduard Shestak will be private. Burial with military honors by the AMVETS Honor Guard will follow at St. Mary’s Parish Cemetery, Taylor.
With gratitude to the staff for their amazing care, memorial contributions in Paul’s name are asked to go to Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 600 Baltimore Drive # 7, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
