Jon Dwyer, 69 of Pittston, passed away peacefully at home on June 24. He was surrounded by his beloved family, dear friends Deb and mike, and his dog Jake was by his side.

Jon was loved by many. Even more, he loved his dear wife Rosemary, niece Antionette (Ryan) Flynn and nephew Tony (Maria) Brogna, who were like a daughter and son to him. His love, laughter, and smile shined even more bright to the many other numerous nieces and nephews that Jon held very close to his heart, especially Collin, AJ (who called his Uncle “Johnny Boy”), and Vinny, who spent weekends at the house joking around with him. In fact, Uncle Jon was more like a father figure to most of his nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Jon was preceded in death by his brothers Billy and James Dwyer.

He leaves behind his wife of 44 years-Rosemary (Brogna), sisters Ann (Sal) Mecca, Karen Quick (partner Jay), Naomi Mahiga, brother-in-law John (Sharon) Brogna, sister-in-law Nancy Brogna, brother-in-law Albert Brogna, and the rest of his nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

As per his wishes, his family will hold a private celebration of his life at his home where everyone gathers.
