Brian S. Schlosser, Sr.

Brian Stanley Schlosser Sr., age 57, passed away "Friday the 13th", November 13, 2020 surrounded by his loved ones at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pennsylvania. 

Brian was predeceased by his mother, Joanne Schlosser of Ulster; father, Edward Schlosser Sr. of Ulster; brother, Floyd Coyne of Ulster; brother, Edward Schlosser Jr. of Ulster; and brother, Charles "Chucky" Harkinson of Ulster.

Brian is survived by his wife of 42 years, Carolyne M. Schlosser; brother, Kevin Schlosser Sr.; sister, Cindy Coyne; brother, David Schlosser; son, Brian Schlosser Jr. and daughter-in-law Stacy Schlosser; daughter, Tiffany N. Glielmi and son- in-law Robert Glielmi; and his grandchildren whom he loved with his whole heart, Addison Glielmi, Ethan Glielmi, Sidney Schlosser, Brian Schlosser III, and Hudson Glielmi. 

Brian was born March 18, 1963 in Woodbury, New Jersey where he lived until he was 9.  His family embedded their roots in rural Ulster, PA where Brian grew up learning to love hunting, riding his motorcycle, and spending time with friends.  Brian married his high school sweetheart and best friend, Carolyne Schlosser, on December 5, 1981.  Shortly after, Brian joined the United States Air Force in February of 1982. Brian served as a Jet Engine Mechanic and earned the rank of Staff Sergeant until his honorable discharge in July of 1992.  Brian and Carolyne built a beautiful family and legacy throughout their 42 years of marriage having 2 children and helping to raise multiple neighborhood kids who were always welcome in their home. Brian built a career at the Daily Review/Towanda Printing Company, where he worked for more than 25 years.  In his most recent years, Brian enjoyed spending his days with his family, especially his grandchildren and his dogs Tucker and Abraham. His favorite hobby was decorating for and celebrating Halloween.  His family asks that in his memory you will continue to spread the Halloween spookiness throughout the season.  

A quote from his favorite movie Young Frankenstein:

"Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: What a filthy job.

Igor: Could be worse.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: How?

Igor: Could be raining... (thunder followed by rain)"

We had the pleasure of meeting Brian and Carolyne while they were stationed in South Florida.  We  had many good times as did the kids!  Bill was so happy that Brian had found him on Facebook and reconnected Bill with the group!  It is such a shame that Covid canceled their reunion in the Spring.  Our condolences to Carolyne and the entire family  - his passing is such a tremendous loss.

Carolyne, words cannot express my deepest sympathy in the passing of Brian. He and I had worked through some touchy situations at The Daily Review, and he was always a professional man. He, John McAndrew and I also had some good times in our Baltimore company meetings.  I'll remember him and his family in my prayers.  God is blessing him as we speak.

Such Sadness that you have brought to our small family at the Daily Review, Brian! I didn't get the privilege of knowing you personally, but, I liked you from the day you hired me! You came out of your office, when Amber called you, & didn't let me finish filling out my application, & I was hired! Must have been desperate! No Nonsense w/you, Brian! A Genuinely NICE GUY you were! Conversations we had about our dogs, & Kellie's Love of Halloween, brought your Love of that Holiday out, TOO! You dressed up as Santa, for all of us, & made our job fun! I'm so sad for the loss of such a Young, & Dedicated Man, & for your Family also! We Always knew when you were near, because you were whistling a tune! Can't fill the void that you've left, but have you in our Heart Forever! GOD Bless You Brian! xoxo
