Raymond “Ray” J. Uniatowski, 85 of Wilkes-Barre, passed away Tuesday morning, November 24, 2015 at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore, PA.

Born November 2, 1930 in Wilkes-Barre, he was the son of the late Frank and Katherine (Smith) Uniatowski. Ray was a lifelong resident of the Heights section of Wilkes-Barre and was a graduate of James M. Coughlin High School, Wilkes-Barre, class of 1948.

Prior to his retirement, he was employed by Modern Handling Equipment Company from 1967-1995, and Colours Inc., from 1998-2012.

Ray loved spending time with his family. He was an avid hunter and golfer and enjoyed fixing things. Working on vehicles was one of Ray’s many skilled talents. He greatly enjoyed spending time in his motor home, whether it was sitting still in his driveway or nestled into a campsite at one of his favorite RV parks. He greatly enjoyed spending time down the shore. Ray was a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. Ray has touched everyone’s life who knew him. He will be forever in our hearts and will always bring a smile to our faces. He will be greatly missed by all.
