June 7, 2023


It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Gerald S. Paluck, 80, of Dallas, PA, who passed away unexpectedly on June 7, 2023, after a brief illness.

Born in Alden Station, Pennsylvania, on June 26, 1942, he was the son of the late Steve & Mary (Rudowski) Paluck. He was predeceased by his sister, Janet Paluck Thompson in March 2023. Gerald is survived by his wife of 43 years, Linda Sager Paluck; Sister, Nancy (Michael) Tkatch, Dallas, PA; Brother-in-law, Robert R. Thompson, Jr., Glen Mills, PA; nephews Rob (Wendy) Thompson, Waxhaw, NC; Kirk (Dr. Lisa Drago), Garnet Valley, PA; great nephew & niece Steven & Mary Thompson, Garnet Valley, PA; and his beloved cat, Morris.

He was a proud graduate of Newport Twp. High School, Class of 1960 and earned an associate degree from Luzerne County Community College. Jerry had a strong work ethic, and he would be the first to credit his parents for instilling the values it took to be a well-rounded individual.  If you had the pleasure of his company, it was that genuine smile, warm heart and his ability to make you comfortable that we will remember most. Not long out of high school, Jerry began to work, along with his Dad, for the GlenNan Coal Company until the year he was called to serve his country. Drafted in 1965, he served in the U.S. Army,196th Special Brigade, STRAC (Strategic Army Command), stationed at Fort Devens, Massachusetts, until 1969, continuing service in the US Army Reserve until his honorable discharge in 1970. Jerry's passion for sports led him to Boulder, Colorado, where he became a seasoned tennis pro for a number of years.  He was a well-traveled man, whether with his wife, Linda, or his best friend, Tom, having explored forty-nine states, and many countries abroad, always with a thirst for adventure and learning about different cultures. As he made his way back to the East Coast, and closer to home, Jerry developed a knack for the sales industry, most of which was spent serving the dental community. Jerry was truly humble, a man of many talents, who loved his family and pets, and appreciated nature. He was knowledgeable and informed as a result of extensive reading. To know Jerry was to love him and he will be sorely missed by all who knew him. "Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know, and you will see the way to fly." Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Richard Bach, author
