Joseph Conrad Tabor

March 18, 1941 — June 7, 2021

Joseph Conrad Tabor, age 80, of Lopez, PA, loving father, husband and grandfather, passed away on Monday, June 7, 2021, at the Robert Packer Hospital after a brief illness.

Born March 18, 1941, in Scranton, to the late Joseph S. and Anna Stritt Tabor, he grew up in Mildred, PA, where he enjoyed swimming at Schaad’s Dam and playing in the ledges, and developed a lifelong passion for baseball playing on Mildred’s Little League team.

 

Graduating from Turnpike High School in 1959, Joe enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where he served for 4 years attaining the rank of Corporal while being stationed in Turkey as well as at Guantanamo Bay during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

 

He returned to Sullivan County upon his discharge and married the former Christina Hoover on March 14, 1964. Joe and Tina recently celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary. 

 

Joe was a very active member of the McDermott American Legion Post #452, a parishioner of St. Francis of Assisi Church and member of the White Ash Land Association in Mildred. Joe was also a member of VFW Post #1568, B.P.O.E. Lodge #2191, and the Penn-York Marine Corps League in Towanda where he was a member of the detachment’s shooting team.

 

He was an insurance salesman most of his life and retired from Kilmer Insurance, in Wyalusing, PA. He enjoyed local history, especially the history of Bernice, was an avid fan of the Chicago Cubs, and enjoyed hunting with the Murray gang.

 

Joe will be sadly missed by his family and friends.
