Shawn C. Soska - Friday, 10/16/2020

Shawn C. Soska, 36, of Pittston, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, October 11, 2020, at his home.

Born in Kingston, he was a son of John F. Soska III, Pittston and Lori E. Daniel Scholeck, Pittston. Shawn attended Pittston Area High School.

He was a beloved son, father, brother, nephew and friend. He so loved his children and they felt just the same about their Daddy. He was known for his contagious smile, sense of humor, love of the outdoors, his quads, skateboarding, music and fishing, especially with his kids. He cherished his family and was always the jokester keeping them on their toes. May God grant you peace and may you always keep a watch over your entire family.

In addition to his parents, Shawn is survived by his daughter, Kylie Soska, step-daughter, Destiny, step-son, Jaylen, and companion, Dre Reynolds, all of Avoca; sister, Amy Soska, West Wyoming; brother, Todd Soska, Pittston; aunts and uncles, including David and Sandy Soska, Maui, HI and cousins.

Shawn was preceded in death by his brother, John "Ziggy" D. Soska; paternal grandparents, John F., Jr. and Bridget (Jean) Soska and maternal grandparents, Albert & Joan Daniel.

A blessing service will be held at 10:00AM on Friday, October 16, 2020, in Baloga Funeral Home, Inc., 1201 Main St., Pittston (Port Griffith). Interment will be in Memorial Shrine Cemetery, Carverton.
