Obituary for Paul R. Possinger

Paul Richard Possinger, 78, passed away peacefully at his home in Sciota,
surrounded by loved ones, on April 11, 2019.
Paul was born on July 15, 1940 and was a long-time resident of East
Stroudsburg. He is preceded in death by his parents, Hazel P. Gearhart and
Paul F. Possinger, as well as his devoted son-in-law, Lonnie E. Perry, Sr.
Paul is survived by his siblings: George R. Possinger and wife, Carolyn, of
Reeders; Lois J. Turr, of East Stroudsburg; and, Patricia Koehler and
husband, Harold, of Sciota.
Paul is also survived by his son, Paul and wife, Sandra, of Blakeslee, as
well as their daughters, Jessie Possinger and BobbieJo Smith and their
families. In addition, he has been surrounded by lots of loving nieces and
nephews, some of whom came to view him as a secondary father or grandfather
through the years. Among others, we would be remiss not to give special
mention to nieces, Heidi Miller and Dawn Vosper, and her daughter Starla,
who grew up knowing Paul as her adored "Pappy" along with her cousins.
Paul has been the devoted husband of Julia ("Dukie") Sargent since 1972.
Together, they raised children, C. David Hineline Jr. and Darlene M.
(Hineline) Perry and enjoyed their growing family, keeping them close to
home and enjoying each generation, seemingly more than the one before it.
He is survived by Dave and wife, Donna, of Saylorsburg; their children,
Kristy (Hineline) Ralston and her husband, Michael; Michelle (Hineline)
Esposito and her husband, Donald; and collectively, their children:
Kimberlee, Megan, Michael, and Konnor Ralston, and, Skylar and Nicholas
Esposito. Darlene and her late husband, Lonnie, also gave Paul his three
beloved grandsons: Lonnie (wife, Sandra); Michael (wife, Suzanne); and
Taylor (fiancé, Sara Rowe); and collectively, their children: Carson and
Dylan; and, Abigail and Logan. Paul so loved the company of his
grandchildren and great grandchildren. He would endlessly spend hours
entertaining himself by playfully teasing the children and amusing
himself with their exaggerated responses to his antics. And they returned
his love in kind. As did surviving sister-in-law, Betty Pascuitti, and her
husband James, of Spotswood, NJ.
Paul enjoyed lengthy and fulfilling employment with K&L Motors, CHC Motors,
and Jack Williams. He also spent many years as a driver - of school buses,
trucks, or rollbacks, but his favorite thing to drive was his dear,
tolerant wife - to the brink of her sanity. They enjoyed a playful and
mutually fulfilling marriage full of laughter and of love - love from one
another and from those around them. Paul enjoyed his overwhelming
collections of Nascar / Dale Earnhardt memorabilia, Hess trucks, trains,
and Garfields. He was proud of the time he devoted to the West End Fire
Company as a volunteer. He routinely enjoyed sitting around the dining
room table, entertaining the company of friends and family. Not a day went
by when someone wasn't popping in for a visit, a cup of coffee, and some
conversation. All of which will be missed by his many loved ones, whom
have all come to know his place at that table, as well as his place in
front of the television of the living room that witnessed his countless
exchanges with his growing family over the years.
Paul was ever grateful to St. Luke's for the exceptional care they
provided, and the family especially appreciates the compassion provided by
the Hospice service staff. A memorial will be held at the discretion of
family at a later date.
Gower Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc., Route 209, Gilbert, PA 18331
