In Memory of John J. Pagoda JR.
April 20, 1976 - January 9, 2005
Sadly, John recently passed away due unexpected complications during surgery. He will be greatly missed by us all. John was our authority on mines in the Wilkes-Barre to Nanticoke area. He wrote all the information on this website on mines in that area. He loved to explore and there will be a great void left without him.
John first came in contact with us when he e-mailed us of the Dorrance Fan Complex. That weekend Chris decided to take a trip with him to see it. He showed us many mines and related structures as well as given us a wealth of pictures of no longer standing breakers. John was also an anthracite technology artifact collector and had an amazing collection.
