Obituary of Robert Bozinski

Robert (Bob) L. Bozinski, 64, of East Washington Street, Nanticoke passed away Tuesday afternoon, August 13, 2019 at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center surrounded by loving and devoted family.

Born October 18, 1954, in Nanticoke, he was the son of the late Francis and Ethel (Thomas) Bozinski. He grew up in Nanticoke and graduated from Nanticoke High School in 1972 and Wilkes College in 1976 with a Bachelor's degree in Education.

He was a hard worker from a young age.  He held many jobs over his lifetime, including at Carrols Restaurant, Burger King Restaurants Manager for several years, Kmart Stores Assistant Manager in PA and NY, Techneglas for many years, International Paper, Sealy/Mountaintop Foam, and Walmart for over 12 years. He was a very devoted and loving husband and father. His wife and daughter always came first. He only wanted to take care of and support his family. He enjoyed caring for people and would be the first to offer a helping hand. He enjoyed watching TV, reading Star Trek books, playing board games and cards, visiting Knoebels and the Bloomsburg Fair, and talking proudly about his daughter's accomplishments. He will be missed by everyone whose lives he touched. He endured a long illness and hospitalization, but his faith was unwavering. He was watched over by his special Guardian Frog and unending photos of his honorary grandson, Jayvion.

Surviving are his devoted wife of over 25 years, Jamie (Pfuntner Rees) Bozinski; his beloved daughter Zoe Grace Rees Bozinski; siblings, Dorothy Hemsley, Hanover Township; Pat Herring and husband Kenneth, Nanticoke; Francis, Rochester, NY; Sue Randall and husband Dave, Sugarloaf; Dennis and wife Ann, Wilkes-Barre; Denise Wildoner and husband Shane, Hunlock Creek; sister-in-law Julie Hummer and husband Francis, Nanticoke; several nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and other loved ones. He was preceded in death by his parents, his mother in-law, Grace Rees, and infant sister, Ruth. 

Special thanks to Dr. James Martino and also to the many excellent nurses and CNA's who cared for him during illness. Special thanks to his sister Sue Randall for being his devoted companion during his illness, to Julie and Francis Hummer and Jack Watkins for their support.
