John L. Titus
John L. "Jack" Titus, II, 75, of Hermitage, passed away late Monday evening (Feb. 10, 2020) in the emergency room of Sharon Regional Medical Center.
Mr. Titus was born March 11, 1944, in Sharon, a son of John L. "Lloyd" and Martha (Burns) Titus.
He was a lifelong area resident and a 1962 graduate of Hickory High School, Hermitage.
Jack worked as a welder at the former General American Transportation Corp. (GATX), Masury, until the plant's closing in 1984. He then began driving truck for Essroc in Hillsville, and later drove for Castle Builder Supply in Hermitage.
Jack also drove school buses for STA in Hermitage, and transported the students of Hickory and Sharpsville schools, a job he loved dearly. Most recently, he drove a school van for Erdos Transport Services, West Middlesex.
Jack was a member of St. Bartholomew Church, Sharpsville.
He took much pride in a hard day's work and his immaculately kept lawn. Jack loved spending time with his children and grandchildren, especially while supporting them at their sporting events.
His wife of 51 years, the former Constance E. Zentz, whom he married July 24, 1968, survives at home.
Also surviving are: two sons, Jon (Renee) Titus, Sharpsville, and David (Jenifer) Titus, West Middlesex; a sister, Darla Renner, West Middlesex; a brother, Tim (Nancy) Titus, Tarpon Springs, Fla.; and six grandchildren, Natalie, Ian and Morgan Titus; and Michael, Jack and Casey Gladysz.
