Leo Wisniewski, 94 of Dickson City passed away peacefully on the night of Tuesday, July 28, 2020, at Hospice of the Sacred Heart in Dunmore.

He was born in 1925 in Peckville to Francis and Adeline Wisniewski. He proudly volunteered during WWII and served in the South Pacific Theater, and he was a member of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5937, Dickson City. He worked as a presser in local garment factories and enjoyed working so much that he continued in various other jobs, retiring at age 85.

Leo made friends easily and enjoyed spending time working around the house. He was proud of his Polish heritage and spoke the language fluently. He was always ready with a joke or a good story from his youth. He is remembered as always have a song on his lips and a pipe in his mouth. He loved to spend evenings at home with his family and animals, playing cards and reading the newspaper.

Leo instilled values in his children to guide them in their lives and always made holidays and birthdays memorable for them. He was a devout Catholic and loved the Lord. He attended Mass at St. Mary’s Visitation Church in Dickson City and was often seen praying his rosary.

Leo is survived by his wife of 62 years Helen Lisiak Wisniewski, who with their daughter Laura lovingly cared for him in his last weeks at home; his three children: son Mark Wisniewski and his wife Marisa, daughter Laura Wisniewski, and son Brian Wisniewski; his three grandchildren Francesca Weisfelner and her husband David, Teresa Telesca and her husband Joseph, and Adam Wisniewski and his wife Jaclyn.

He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his mother and father, sisters Lottie and Fran, Jane and Estelle, and brothers Myron and Adam.
