Timothy Mark Supeck of Scranton passed away Thursday at the Geisinger Community Medical Center following a courageous four year battle with Multiple Myeloma. He and his wife, the former Mary Agnes Murray, celebrated 39 years of marriage in October.
Born in Scranton, he was the son of the late Joseph and Lizzetta Freese Supeck. A graduate of West Scranton High School, class of 1975, he proudly served in the United States Marine Corp. Prior to his illness he was employed by the city of Scranton in the DPW department.
He enjoyed working on his 1963 Chevy, riding his motorcycle, and tinkering with lawn mowers. He was a big fan of NASCAR, and the Dallas Cowboys and driving his “Chedodge.” Throughout his many obstacles he found immense strength in listening to all kinds of music.
Most of all he cherished his time spent with his grandchildren, Natalie and Justin. He was very family oriented and was known as the “glue” always trying to keep everyone together. He was known to put others before himself and he always provided words of wisdom, “Keep Smiling“, “Never give Up!” “Life is about making memories, make as many as you can!” He was deeply loved and will be missed by all that knew him.
He was a member of the Providence Presbyterian Church, the Black Sheep of West Scranton, the Marine Corp League, and St. Stephen’s Booster Club.
