Mr. Patrick E. "Pat" McEntee, 68, a resident of Shavertown, passed into Eternal Life Monday afternoon in the care of Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township, following a recent illness.
Born August 4, 1951 in Brooklyn, New York, he was one of three children to the late Patrick and Catherine "Kitty" (Farrelly) McEntee. Educated in the New York City school system, he was a graduate of the Erasmus High School, Brooklyn where several well known actors and actresses did likewise.
Until his retirement in 2002, Pat was employed as an assistant train dispatcher for the New York City Transit Authority. Following his formal retirement, the family relocated to the Shavertown section of Kingston Township where he kept busy. He, along with his wife, owned and operated the Plymouth Flea Market in the former Fainberg's Furniture Store on Main Street. He also previously owned "All About Cleanouts" removal service locally.
He and his wife, the former Nancy Schiavo celebrated forty-six years of married life together on June 29th of this year.
Pat was a well known fixture each Sunday at the Garden Drive In flea market in Hunlock Creek. Kind to a fault, Pat was loved by many and would never refuse a person in need, always willing to lend a helping hand.
In the couple's spare time, they enjoyed the many trips to Mohegan Sun Pocono over the years.
Mr. McEntee was preceded in death by a brother Thomas.
