After a life fully lived, JD Taladay, 82, departed this Earth much later than he expected, on May 22, 2014.
Born Sept. 27, 1931, in Punxsutawney he was baptized Jerome Cosmas Damian at the church of the same name, where he was a lifelong parishioner.
Many called him Jerry; he invariably referred to himself as simply JD.
A 1949 graduate of SS.C.D. High School, he enlisted in the United States Army, where he attained the rank of staff sergeant and served in a combat zone during the Korean War.
