Loss of a past member, friend and CMO for the WPRM

Departure John V. Buberniak


On Monday February 5, 2018 John V. Buberniak passed away at the age of 52 near his hometown of Carbondale, Pennsylvania. His passing came after an eleven-day ordeal in the ICU at the Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton, Pennsylvania. John and his wife, Pamela, had traveled to Pennsylvania for John's mother's funeral on January 26th. Many of you will remember him for being the WPRM CMO for several years and getting us many needed batteries for our RAL locomotives.

John was a good friend to many and was a mechanic for the UPRR in Roseville, California.
