Mr. Walter Dwight Dresing III, 63, a resident of Kingston, formerly of North Wilkes-Barre and New York City, passed unexpectedly into eternal life Sunday, January 17th, 2021 while in the care of the Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center.
Born on Friday, March 29, 1957 in New York’s Brooklyn Borough, he was one of two children to the late Walter D. Jr. and E. Christine (Yanish) Dresing.
Following the family’s relocation to the Wyoming Valley, they settled on West Chestnut Street in Wilkes-Barre’s North End neighborhood.
Educated in the city schools, Walter was a 1976 graduate of the former James M. Coughlin High School, Wilkes-Barre. He furthered his education by attending the Luzerne County Community College, Nanticoke with studies in commercial arts. He previously attended the First Presbyterian Church, Franklin Street, Wilkes-Barre.
Following his formal education, Walter proudly served our county by enlisting with the United States Navy in 1980.
Upon his return home, and having a natural talent with construction and custom made furniture, he worked alongside his father at the family’s woodshop for several years.
In his spare time and being a lover of the outdoors, Walter enjoyed skiing and bicycling. He even participated in several local triathlons over the years. He had a passion for automobiles, especially sports cars and unusual vehicles. One of his favorite being a prized Volkswagen bus he proudly drove around town.
Above all, Walter is best remembered as being a loving big brother to his younger sister, and having a heart of gold when it came to helping someone in need. He continues to be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
He was preceded in death by his father Walter on September 27, 1998 and by his mother, Christine on September 25, 2006.
Left to cherish his memory are his sister, Mrs. Delza Croteau and her husband Roger L. of Harding along with several dear friends. Funeral services for Walter were held privately and at the convenience of his family. May he now rest peacefully with his parents in the arms of Our Saviour.
