Albert V. Shatinsky, 80,
Mr. Albert V. Shatinsky, 80, of 4852 SR367, Laceyville, PA, went home to be with the Lord on Friday evening, Nov. 11, 2011 at Moses Taylor Hospital in Scranton, after a lingering illness. Born in Pittston on Dec. 27, 1930, he was the son of the late Joseph and Anna Kizavich Shatinsky.
His early life was spent growing up in the West Auburn area. His entire life was spent in or near Laceyville. Albert started working for Laceyville Agway and worked there for 12 years. For the next 40 years, he was a truck driver, being an owner operator, hauling milk for most of those years into New York City and New Jersey. He also hauled logs for years throughout northeastern PA. Being a very hard worker, and being on the road for many years, spare time was hard to come by, but when he was able, he enjoyed the outdoors, where he loved to garden, hunt and fish, or just spend time with his family.
Surviving is his wife of 58 years, the former Jenora B. Brown, whom he married on Sept. 5, 1953. He is also survived by his son, Bradley A. Shatinsky of Laceyville and a sister and her husband, Theresa and Tom Ross of Dimock, as well as many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Bernard Shatinsky and Joseph Shatinsky.
Funeral services were held on Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 2 p.m. from the Sheldon Funeral Home, Main St., Laceyville, with his longtime friend, Pastor James Wentz, officiating. Interment was in the Lacey St. Cemetery, Laceyville. Family and friends called at the funeral home on Tuesday afternoon from 1 p.m. until the time of the service.
