January 25, 1947 - June 29, 2019
Robert (Bob) Gazda, age 72 and a lifelong resident of Moosic, passed away Saturday morning at home, after an illness. He is survived by his beloved companion of 30 years, Helen (Correll) Leschinsky of Moosic.
Born on January 25, 1947, and son of the late Eddie T. and Eloise M. King Gazda, Bob was a graduate of the former Taylor-Moosic High School. A truck driver by trade, he last drove for Pine Freight Company, though his best talents came as a skillful craftsman. From plumbing to woodworking, there wasn’t a project he couldn’t master. Also an outdoorsman, he especially loved fishing.
A member of St. Stanislaus Polish National Cathedral in Scranton since his youth, he’ll be dearly missed by his family and friends.
He is survived by his brother, John Gazda of Syracuse, New York; his sons, Jason Gazda and wife Erica of West Wyoming and Edward Gazda of Ashley; three grandchildren; and nieces and nephews.
A brother, Thomas Gazda, also preceded him in death.
His family would like to thank the entire staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart for the care and compassion they provided Bob and his family during his final days.
A funeral service with burial in St. Stanislaus P.N.C. parish cemetery will be private. Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
