Richard Hayden Driscole Jr., 58, of Falls, passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Allied Services Hospice Center after his long and courageous battle with cancer.
He was born September 10, 1961 to the late Richard and Mary (Wilverding) Driscole, grew up in Factoryville, graduated from Lackawanna Trail High School and settled in Falls with his beloved family.
Rich, a skilled mechanic, was the CEO and owner of Driscole’s Autobody Inc., Scranton. He was a fair and honest business owner known not only for his quality work but also for his friendly demeanor.
Rich could fix and build anything and enjoyed working on endless projects and spending time with family. He was an avid hunter and fly fisherman. One of his greatest joys was found with the Tunkhannock Youth Soccer League coaching his daughters and many of their friends in a sport he learned to love.
Rich is survived by his loving wife Melissa, his two beautiful daughters Madison Sara and Hayden Richelle, brothers Jack (Rita), Howard (Pattie), brothers-in-law David Werner (Stephanie), Randy Marzani (Colleen), David Rees (Cindy), in-laws, David and Sandra Rees, and eighteen nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Mary Lorraine. Rich also leaves behind many friends who he loved like family.
His family would like to thank the countless medical professionals who have touched their lives over the past sixteen years, especially the employees of Johns Hopkins and Residential Hospice. Rich always had a way of quickly becoming everyone’s favorite patient whether it was his beautiful blue eyes or his charming personality and we were blessed throughout his journey.
