I was so saddened to hear of Emil's recent passing. I did see Emil every now and then whenever I would visit Ollie's Restaurant in Kingston and we would always exchange pleasantries. We attended Swoyersville High School together and I always remember Emil as a great football star of the Swoyersville Sailors. He was a very friendly and popular kid throughout high school. Marlene, I know I haven't seen you in about 40 years since we graduated high school, but I remember you very well. I was so sorry to hear about your brother, Emil, and please know that I have you and your family in my prayers. I do not know Emil's son and his family personally, but please tell them that I send my condolences and hope that all of Emil's extended family will find peace and comfort in God's loving presence. God Bless you all!

I wish to express my condolences for your loss. While in college with Emil we played ball together and I considered him a wonderful friend. My sisters referred to him as their other brother. I moved away for a 35 year period but returned a few years ago. The last time we were together was a reunion we had for our football team and a wonderful time was had by all. We relived all our youth.

Unfortunately, time has set adrift many of my college friendships. I had the opportunity to get to know Emil when playing football at Kings. The same intensity he brought to the field, he brought to his friendships and team mates. Cruelly, Father time has taken the War Bird early; however, that same father time is incapable of stealing all of his memories of which we all are a part of during his life. Those memories are now parts of ourselves... they will live forever through his family, friends, and teammates.

I met Emil when he played football for Swoyersville High in the 1960's. I lost track of him until my wife and I saw him as manger of Ollie's Resturant. We often chatted about his beloved team, the Eagles'. Emil was a very outgoing person, and his kindness will always be remembered. Our deepest sympathy to his family. Ron and Sally Pointek

Growing up in Swoyersville in the 50s and 60s, it seemed like everyone knew Emil. I remember playing various sports around town with him, and later, our paths crossed again at King's College, where we played basketball together on an intramural team. I lost touch with Emil after graduation, having moved to Endicott, NY. I am very saddened at the loss of a dear friend. Our deepest sympathies are with you at this difficult time. Bob & Nancy

I met Emil while attending King's College, and playing football there. I remember him with fondness. He was a talented athlete, and lead team mates by setting an example. He was a man of few words. And as I remember, when he spoke, we listened. My sincere condolences to Emil's family and friends.

Emil was a great friend of mine in the 1980's. After I got married in 1990, our paths drew apart and after my retirement to Florida some years later, I, regretfully, lost contact with him. I was greatly saddened by his passing. I will always remember him as a dear friend with a heart as big as his shoulders. My deepest sympathy to his family. May he rest in peace. With deep regrets, Ken and Emma
