Mr. James W. Babiarz, 76, of Greenfield Twp., passed away Monday, March 26, 2018, at Geisinger Community Medical Center, Scranton.
Born in Dalton, he was the son of the late Andrew and Irene Rodney Babiarz. Jim was a graduate of Falls-Overfield High School. Prior to his retirement, he was employed by Penn's Best, Tunkhannock.
Jim will always be remembered for his sense of humor. He always had the ability to make you laugh and brighten up your day. He always had a smile and kind word to say to everyone he knew and everyone he met.
Jim loved bowling, playing his guitar, country music and western movies. But what he really enjoyed the most, was spending time with his two grandchildren. He will be truly missed.
He was preceded in death by his daughter, Lisa Marie, two brothers, Robert and Ken and sister, Rosalie Rowland.
