The family of Edward “Pidgy” Yarosh sadly announces his passing on April 29th, 2021 at the Gino J. Merli Veteran’s Center.

Born March 1st, 1923 to the late John and Martha Rochinski Yarosh, he lived his entire life in Dickson City attending St. Mary’s Parochial School, Dickson City HS and Johnson School.

Eddie enlisted in the United States Army in 1943.  He was a member of the 116th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Gun Battalion serving his country during WWII.  During his time in service, he participated in the D-Day invasion on the beaches of Normandy.  He was a true “American Hero”.

Returning home, he married the former Bernice Bernosky and raised three children: Barbara, Judy, and David.

He was a life-long member of St. Mary’s Visitation Parish and a life member of American Legion Post #665 in Dickson City.

He retired from B. Levy & Sons in Scranton in 1988 but continued to work as a school crossing guard for the next 19 years.

He is survived by his daughter Judy Hooper and husband Bob, Olyphant, son David Yarosh and wife Janet, Jessup, son-in-law Philip Bishop, Lebanon PA, grandchildren John Uhl and wife Sharon, Hughestown, Jennifer Gorski and husband Mark, Clark Summit, Stacy Stark and husband Chris, Lebanon PA, and great-grandchildren Mary and Samantha Stark and Anna and Evan Gorski; his sister Betty Bernosky, Idaho, Martha Mroczka, Jermyn, and brother Ronald, and wife, Judy, Florida.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 73 years, Bernice, beloved daughter, Barbara Bishop, sisters Helen Zeleniak, Dorothy Krol, and Loretta Bond.

The family of Pidgy would like to thank the entire staff of 3 South at the Gino Merli for the wonderful care they provided dad during these past two years.  They truly were our father’s angels.
