John “Mos” Makowski, 93, passed away on Friday October 9, 2015 at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore.  He was a resident at the Gino Merli Veterans Center, Scranton.

Born in Dickson City on October 18, 1921, he was the son of the late John and Anna Kotek Makowski.  He was a member of St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City.  He served his country honorably in World War II and the Korean War.  For his service, he received the Good Conduct Medal, Bronze Service Arrowhead, the EAMET Ribbon and the Occupation Metal.  He was a lifetime member of the American Legion.

Prior to retirement he worked in the construction field as a high lineman in New Jersey, Allentown and the Scranton areas.  He grew bored and became a school bus driver.  He was employed by Stafursky Transportation until 1997 where the children called him Mr. Mos.

John was an avid golfer and recorded four hole in ones.  He was a member of the Dickson City VFW golf league where he won numerous titles for low scratch as well as winning team titles with his golf partner John Pazzaglia.  He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and gardening.

He was preceded in death by four brothers, William, Henry, Stanley and Leo and four sisters, Catherine Angeli, Sophie Oprisko, Anastasia Carlson and Anna Arvay.  He is survived by nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to the nursing staff at Gino Merli, Moses Taylor, especially Barb, Liza and Richelle and the entire staff at Hospice of the Sacred Heart.
