Kevin J. Plocinski
Kevin J. Plocinski, 57, of Williamsport, went to be with the Lord on Friday, June 16, 2017, at his home after a long courageous six year battle with cancer. He was born in Williamsport on July 30, 1959, and was the son of Clement and Mary Steinbacher Plocinski.
Kevin was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Bastress. He was employed as a welder for High Steel Structures Co. for over 30 years until his health brought him to an early retirement. Kevin’s family will always remember him for his craftsmanship in building small projects and his love he had when helping others in remodeling their homes. Kevin was a member of the Babylon Hunting Club and he enjoyed watching the Penn State and Steelers play. Kevin enjoyed his cat Tiger, yet most of all, he loved spending time with his grandchildren! He loved going to the casinos to play the slots and also enjoyed scratching/ playing lottery.
His wife of 34 years, the former Carla A. Dincher, survives him, as well as his two daughters, Nicole (Kyle) Kehoe, of Pottsville, and Christine Plocinski, of Williamsport. He is survived by his grandchildren, Gunner John, Knox Jack, Kruz Hale and Emberlynn Marie. Also surviving are his brother and sisters, Carol H. (Steve) Saar, of South Williamsport, Stanley C. (Arlene) Plocinski, of Williamsport, Donna L. (Dale) Follmer, of South Williamsport and Mary Kay (Terry) Gamble, of Williamsport. His stepfather, Robert Daugherty, of Nisbet survives as well as his sisters-in-law, Margaret and Vicki Plocinski. Also surviving are Kevin’s many nieces and nephews, who will greatly miss their “Uncle Kev” for his wonderful sense of humor and endless jokes! He was preceded in death by his father, Clement and his mother, Mary Plocinski-Daugherty and brothers, Frederick and Francis Plocinski.
Friends may call at the Crouse Funeral Home, 133 E. Third St., on Tuesday evening from 6-9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 5973 Jacks Hollow Road, Bastress, on Wednesday June 21, 2017 at 11 a.m. with his pastor the Rev.
