On January 10, 2020, John J. Hoban of Westminster was chosen to eternal life with our Lord.

Born in West Pittston, he was the son of the late Martin and Regina (Walsh) Hoban.

John was a graduate of Wyoming Area High School, and College Misericordia. John was employed by the United States Post Office, retiring as Post Master. He was a member of St. Maria Goretti Church, Laflin, and a former member of Emanon Country Club, Falls.

John will be able again to love, watch over and help the two most precious, joyful gifts he and Danielle are blessed with, Livie and Ella. They were and still are John’s everything. Thank you John for giving us beautiful memories that we will be able to reminisce about when we are together again. He will be fondly remembered and missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. We love John.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Dennis Hoban.
