Frank M. Agliata, Jr., age 71, a lifelong resident of West Scranton, died Saturday morning under the care of the V.N.A. Hospice Inpatient Unit at Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton. He is survived by his loving wife, Carole Tanner Agliata. The couple would have celebrated their 48th anniversary on Septembeer 9th.
Born on June 18, 1944, and son of the late Frank, Sr., and Angeline Micciche Agliata, Frank was a graduate of West Scranton High School, Class of 1962. A longtime warehouseman for Affiliated Foods, he retired in the maintenance department for ABM, Montage Mountain. He was a longtime member of Saint Ann’s Basilica.
A proud Navy Veteran, he was discharged in 1968, after six years of service. An avid golfer, he also loved bowling, having bowled in several South Side Lanes leagues. For 45 years, he and his family made countless memories while camping at Keen Lake. Affectionately called “grandpa” by his family, he will forever be missed by family and friends alike.
He is survived by his children, Mari Errico and husband Dominick of Warrington, Missy Giuliani of Scranton, Michael Agliata and companion Kristen Bidwell of Pittston, and Matthew Agliata of Scranton; his adoring grandchildren, Dominic and Gina Giuliani, Caroline Jeranek and Chloe Bidwell; his sisters, Annette Loureiro and husband Eugene, Barbara McIntyre and husband Edward and Linda Williams and husband Charles, all of Scranton, and Beverly Aniska and husband Joseph of Taylor; and many nieces and nephews.
Brothers, Angelo and Charles Agliata, also preceded him in death.
His family can not thank the entire V.N.A.Hospice staff enough for the compassion and care shown to them throughout Frank’s stay.
Funeral services, to begin with military honors by the Amvets Honor Guard, are scheduled for Monday at 6:00PM in the Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 North Main Avenue, Scranton. Relatives and friends may pay their respects from 4:00PM until services.
