Atty. Anthony J. Popeck, 72, of Scranton and formerly of Dickson City, died Thursday evening at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore.  He is survived by his wife the former Susan Blanchard.

 

Born in Dickson City, he was the son of the late Frank and Frances Shinsky Popeck and he was a former member of St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City.  He was a graduate of St. Mary’s Parochial School, Dickson City, Blakely High School class of 1963, the University of Virginia with a BA degree in History, in 1967 and Duquesne Law School, Pittsburgh with a Juris Doctorate degree in 1970.  Until retirement he practiced law in the Scranton area.

Anthony was a loving husband, father, brother, and friend to everyone he met. He excelled both in the classroom as well as on the athletic field in both high school and while at UVA, playing the positions of defensive end and nose guard. An avid sports fan, he loved to watch and discuss collegiate and professional sports, particularly the New York Mets. Although he loved to travel, Anthony also loved the great outdoors of Northeastern Pennsylvania, and spent the winters hunting with friends and family. Anthony enjoyed life to the fullest. He left this world far too soon, and his huge presence will be greatly missed by his loved ones.

Surviving are two children, David Popeck, Brooklyn, NY and Wendy Hinton and husband, Matthew, Forty Fort; two stepchildren, John Warwick, Glen Lyon and Christina Warwick, Greensville, SC; four grandchildren, John Joseph, Joshua, Rhiannon and Robin; a brother, Frank Popeck and wife, Rose, Pottsville; nieces and nephews.
