Clinton Brobst, 83, of Harris Hill Road, Trucksville, passed away Wednesday at the Hospice Care of the VNA, Heritage House, Wilkes-Barre, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born April 23, 1926, in Dallas, he was a son of the late Clinton and Marion Shaver Brobst.
He was a graduate of Dallas Borough High School and East Stroudsburg University, where he received his teaching degree. Clint was a veteran of the U.S. Navy, having served his country proudly during World War II. He was a well-respected teacher in the Dallas School District for 30 years. He also was a highly successful and beloved basketball and track coach for over 25 years at Westmoreland and Dallas High Schools. His teams won numerous championships at Dallas, but, what was most important to "Coach," was that each of his players learned that a strong work ethic and real values would help them live productive lives and be successful in life. He always had a smile and positive word for everyone. "Coach" was simply a good and decent man who wanted to make a difference in young people's lives, and succeeded.
He was preceded in death by brothers, Charles, Harold and Eugene Brobst. He survived by the love of his life and companion for 23 years, Anna Natitus, of Trucksville; his caregivers, Frank and Debbie Natitus, of Trucksville; his brother, Herbert, of Klamuth Falls, Ore.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A private funeral service will be held at the convenience of the family from the Richard H. Disque Funeral Home Inc., 672 Memorial Highway, Dallas, with the Rev. Earl W. Roberts III. of the Dallas United Methodist Church officiating. Interment will be in Memorial Shrine Park, Carverton. There will be no calling hours.
