Vincent Joseph “Judgie” Judge, 73, of Duryea, passed away peacefully at home Sunday, January 23, 2022.
Born in Pittston on March 19, 1948, he was the son of the late Vincent Paul and Annette D. Dileo Judge.
Vincent was a graduate of St. John the Evangelist High School, class of 1965. He served in the US Navy. He was a multi-faceted entrepreneur, one business being owner-operator of Judge Trucking Company. He was a hard-working and industrious man, well educated, with a continued desire and endeavor to increase his knowledge on many topics.
Judgie was an avid motorcyclist, cherishing the freedom of the road, experiencing many traveling adventures. He loved fishing, the outdoors, and nature, living life to the fullest. He had a fun-loving sense of humor, making the most of every opportunity.
Judgie was an amazing person, immensely generous, with a huge heart, loving and caring with his whole being. He was extremely sensitive to others feelings and
needs and was always ready and willing to lend a hand wherever and whenever needed. No matter the trials he experienced, he remained steadfast and true, a dedicated and loyal friend. He was fiercely protective. God bestowed upon him an admirable strength and courage to stand for what is right, even if he stood alone, yet with profound wisdom, fairness, and justice. He did not mince words, and one always knew where one stood with him. Judgie was keenly perceptive, candidly honest, and a man of integrity – a gift from God.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a step-son, Joel Gurley.
