Walter “Whitey” Subjin, 75, of Dingmans Ferry, PA passed from this life on October 17, 2018. The son of the late Anthony Walter and Olga Karp Subjin, he was born April 14, 1943 in Queens, NY. He was married to Sharon Reimer Subjin for 38 years.
As a 40-year resident of Dingmans Ferry, he was involved in many community services and was an active supporter of local projects. He was owner and operator of Pocono Disposal Company for thirty years, a business he started with a pick-up truck and a handful of loyal customers. He was a charter member of the Dingmans Ferry Lions Club and a member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church.
Whitey was a local legend. A friend to all who met him, he had a charming and memorable personality. He was humorous, spontaneous, a loyal friend, had a contagious smile and would go out of his way to help someone. He enjoyed camping, fishing, driving his 1970 Pontiac Catalina, bluegrass music, tailgating, antique machinery, steam locomotives and was a collector of all things.
