John David Wollyung, 57, of Pottsville, passed away unexpectedly on Monday morning at

Born in Pottsville, on June 22, 1964 , he was a son of Barbara A. (Fielding) and the late Joseph M. Wollyung, Jr.

He was a 1982 graduate of Nativity BVM High School.

John was a member of St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church, Pottsville, where he was a member of the building committee.

He was a co-owner of the family business, Rosenberger Plumbing & Heating, since 2001 with his brother, Mike.

John was an avid baseball fan. He especially enjoyed meeting players, and collecting baseball memorabilia and autographs. He enjoyed traveling to MLB spring training and the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. He regularly attended the Reading Fightins, Philadelphia Phillies and Baltimore Orioles games.

His greatest joys were attending his son, Christopher's events, collecting celebrity autographs with him, and spending time with his wife, Marianne.
