William O’Brien Longstreet, 54, of Falls, died Tuesday at Geisinger Community Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit, surrounded by his loving family and friends after a tragic accident. He was the husband of Anna (Franko) Longstreet.
Born Feb. 22, 1964 in Scranton, he was the son of the late Richard and Ann A. (O’Brien) Longstreet. He graduated from Abington Heights High School in 1982.
Bill was the owner of Endless Coffee Service and the former owner of Endless Mountain Water Company. He was an avid outdoorsman. His activities included but were not limited to hunting, golfing and fishing. Bill truly enjoyed being in nature, most of all with his family and friends. He loved his chickens and dogs. He loved life, God, his family and friends in such a tremendous way. He was always positive and coined the phrase, “It’s a great day to be alive!”
