Joseph T. McGuire, 71 of Plains Township, passed away Saturday morning, December 7, 2019 at Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia, PA.

Born in Plains, he was the son of the late Joseph E. and Faith T. (Trevethan) McGuire.

Joseph was a graduate of Sacred Heart High School, Plains, Class of 1966, and King’s College, Wilkes-Barre, Class of 1970.

Over the course of his life Joseph proudly held the following professions; Union plumber, employment facilitator for Luzerne County, store manager for various Turkey Hill locations, retail merchandiser for R.J. Reynolds, and service representative for Bank of America. He was a representative on the Plains Township Zoning Board and a member of the Plumbers & Pipefitters United Association, Local Union 524.

Joseph loved being outdoors. Together with his sons, he transformed the backyard into a place of serenity where one could relax and absorb nature. He enjoyed watching football and was an avid fan of the Raiders and Notre Dame. Football was in constant conversation between him and his son. Joseph was passionate about music and loved listening to his favorites; Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, and Emerson Lake & Palmer. He often reminisced about the many live concerts he so wholeheartedly enjoyed. He was also a big supporter of his step-son’s musical endeavors and projects. Joseph enjoyed using his carpentry talents for projects around the home. He had an overabundance of love and passion for all of us.

Joseph will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and especially by his cats: Sparky, Blackie and his beloved Tigger; whom he called his “Little Girl.”

Surviving are his wife of 25 plus years, the former Wanessa Sot, son Joseph R. McGuire and his wife Micheline, Port Orange, FL, step-son Sean M. Lehman, South Abington Township and mother-in-law Ana C. Sot, Parsons.
