Gary Harlon Scavone, 67, of Kingston, passed away in the presence of his loving family and friends following a courageous battle with cancer on Wednesday, December 15, 2021.

Born July 20, 1954 in Wilkes-Barre he was a son of the late Phillip and Joan McHenry Scavone.

Gary attended Hoyt Elementary School and was a 1972 graduate of E.L. Meyers High School. He earned All-Scholastic and MVP honors in football and baseball as a gifted three-sport athlete. Gary held significant records as a Mohawk quarterback for decades, and his talent as a pitcher led to his selection by the Atlanta Braves fresh out of high school. He later continued his education at Luzerne County Community College and Wilkes University. Gary was inducted into the Meyers High School Sports Hall of Fame and Luzerne County Sports Hall of Fame.

Gary was employed by Dayco Automotive for twenty-nine years, reaching the regional manager level.

A nephew, Austin Vosburg, preceded him in death.
