Michael M. Wiktor, 70, a resident of Dickson City, passed away peacefully on Monday, October 31, 2022, at home after being on Allied Home Hospice care for over one and a half years.  He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Judith Golinski Wiktor.

Born in Peckville, he was the son of the late Matthew and Dolores Petty Wiktor, and he was a member of St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City.  He was a graduate of St. Mary’s Parochial School, Dickson City, and Cathedral High School, class of 1970.  He later graduated from Johnson Technical Institute with a degree in Drafting.  He was employed by Visbisky Plumbing of Dickson City for 36 years, prior to retirement.  Mike was active with Boy scout Troop 21, Dickson City.

Mike suffered a great deal but always had his sense of humor and amusing character that gave others at least a smile but mostly a good laugh. Mike was a hard worker always and would go above & beyond for all those he loved.

Mike served 36 years in the PA National Guard. These men were truly like his brothers and sons. He loved these men and the time he spent planning Christmas Parties for the families and especially enjoyed the children and wouldn’t sit down until everyone was taken care of and always put others first. He was there for his buddy’s families when they were deployed especially if they needed plumbing assistance.

First of all, we would like to thank his BFF Wally for all his help with the house and many visits that brightened Mike’s day and all others who stopped by encouraged us, and lifted our spirits, especially his sister and family and Trish & sorry for those omitted. All were important in Mike’s confinement to home.

And we can’t forget the medical profession. Thanks to Dr. Sean McCall and his staff for all the care they provided before Hospice, all the Allied Hospice team. They were all truly holy people who went above and beyond with their concern for Mike.

Surviving is a daughter, Michaelene Wiktor, Wilkes Barre; a sister, Janet Trinovitch, and husband, George, Jefferson Twp; brother-in-law Joseph Dennis Golinski, and wife, Geraldine, Runnemede, NJ, and a sister-in-law, Mariam Grzech, and husband, Richard, Clarks Summit; several nieces and nephews.

The funeral will be Thursday at 10:30 a.m. from the Frank T. Mazur Funeral Home, Inc., 601 Dundaff St., Dickson City with a mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. in St. Mary’s Visitation Church, Dickson City. Friends may call Thursday morning from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the funeral home. Interment St. Mary’s Cemetery, Dickson City.  To leave an online condolence visit the funeral home website.

Mike was a great scout leader to me in Troop 21 in the 70’s. He led us on so many camping trips to Cold Springs and Goose Pond. Years later I still remember him showing us greenhorns how to cook Cornish hens the right way on an open fire. I will treasure my chats with him over the years about troop history and parish history, especially his wry way of telling all those stories. Judy and Michaeline, please accept my condolences — and I pray that God give you comfort in your memories, and that God grant Mike a restful spot at the heavenly campfire.

Michael was my dear cousin and he will be greatly missed. He was our family historian with all his stories of the the uncles and cousins. It was always a pleasure to visit him and I'll miss his phone calls where I would laugh until I cried .I'll miss his kindness to my Mother , Veronica Wiktor and Aunt Sophie Wiktor while both were living in Dickson City and his great cooking. He was a good man and deserves his rest in heaven.

Mikey and I attended St. Mary's together, and were Good Friends. I can remember, year after year, when we had our Halloween Dress Day, Mike always came year after year as a Soldier. I once asked him why he dressed as a Soldier every year, He told me he wanted to become a Soldier. We parted after 8th grade, but again we met up Serving in 109th Co. B National Guard. I had no idea he put 36 years in. But I can see he got his Wish ...He DID Become that Soldier that he wanted to become serving Honorably. Good Job Mikey. God Bless

Mike was so much more than my scout leader and my first Squad Leader, he is one of the very best people I've ever known. When he was involved in any way, there was always the feeling that things were going to be alright. I will forever remember and cherish Mike's sage, common sense advice in training, every time we visited or spoke on the phone. I will miss you dearly, such a hard act to follow. Over and out. Tommy
