Mitty Woytowich, 88 of Laflin, passed away Friday morning, December 25, 2020, at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township.

Born in Old Forge, he was the son of the late Anthony and Mary (Gambal) Woytowich.

Mitty was a graduate of Old Forge High School, Class of 1950 and was an Army Veteran of the Korean War, serving in the Medical Corps. Upon his honorable discharge from active service, he attended Scranton University, and was a graduate of Wilkes College, earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Science.

Mitty was employed for many years as a Chemical Sales Representative at Textile Chemical Company, Reading, until his retirement. He also worked at Merck Pharmaceuticals where he was on the original team that developed cortisone. He also worked as a die chemist at Gold Toe Hosiery. He was a member of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, Wilkes-Barre, and the F. & A.M. Lodge #0664 for 61 years.

Mitty was as unique as his name. He was the first one to dispense a joke. He could fix anything and was a true “car guy” loving time together with his sons at car shows. Mitty loved spending time with his four grandchildren and hearing about their daily activities and watching them grow. He and his daughter Jane had a special relationship often calling each other to share the latest new joke. He was always, always family first.

A fan favorite at The Cafe’, he faithfully supported his son Jeff in whatever role he needed to play. He enjoyed working the room with the customers. Mitty loved them and the feeling was mutual.

He and his wife the former Marie Wartella celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary on November 9, 2020. He was Leroy to her Loretta.

Mitty was a treasure to know and love and we will miss him more than words can say.

Surviving in addition to his wife Marie are his children his son Richard Woytowich and his wife Karen, his daughter Jane Woytowich, all of Garnet Valley, PA, his son Jeff Woytowich and his wife Kim, Shavertown, and his grandchildren Reagan and Reese Woytowich, Dylan & Kaelyn Kresge, and brother Stephen Woytowich, State College, and many loving extended family members.

Private funeral services with Divine Liturgy held at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, with interment in Fern Knoll Burial Park, Dallas, with Military Honors accorded by the United States Army will be held at the convenience of the family. Arrangements entrusted to the Corcoran Funeral Home, Inc., 20 South Main Street, Plains, PA 18705.
