Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Neil Dominic DeAngelo, age 59, of Taylor, passed away Wednesday at Regional Hospital of Scranton, surrounded by his family and friends. He is survived by his adoring wife, Ellen Cecere DeAngelo, formerly of Centereach, Long Island, New York. Wed on Aug. 26, 1979, they were married for 36 years.
Born in Scranton on Feb. 6, 1957, son of the late Dominic DeAngelo and Antoinette Vender DeAngelo Doody, Neil was a proud graduate of Riverside High School, class of 1975, recently in charge of organizing his 40th class reunion. He then graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, where he earned degrees in both culinary arts and food service management, and where he met the love of his life.
He spent 27 years of his career at Scranton’s Community Medical Center, where he was their food service director. He last ran the food department at Clarks Summit Senior Living. Of Roman Catholic faith, he was a lifelong member of St. Lawrence O’Toole Church in Old Forge, where he prepared food for the church’s Social Club for over a decade.
Neil was very involved in the community, serving for 12 years on the Riverside School District School Board and acting as district zone chairman as a member of the Taylor Lions Club, where he also formerly served as president. A board member of both the Red Cross and the N.E.I.U., he was also a 20-year volunteer for both the Ronald McDonald House and the Friends of the Poor, where he organized their annual Thanksgiving Feast.
A great outdoorsman, Neil loved hunting, fishing and camping. Taken from those who loved him too soon, he touched the lives of all who knew him. He’ll be dearly missed.
He is also survived by his “princess” and adoring daughter, Alicia DeAngelo, of Owens Cross Roads, Alabama; his dear brothers, Francis DeAngelo and wife, Delphine, of Taylor; and Dennis DeAngelo and fiancée, Linda Streznetcky, of Ocala, Florida; nieces and nephews; and great-nieces and great-nephews.
His family would like to thank the entire staff of DaVita Montage At Home Dialysis, including Dr. John Prior, for the amazing care collectively provided.
Funeral services will begin on Monday at 9:30 a.m. from the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, with a 10:30 a.m. Mass of Christian Burial at Divine Mercy Parish, 312 Davis Street, in Scranton, to be celebrated by Rev. Francis L. Pauselli, pastor. Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Sunday between 3 and 6 p.m. at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Neil’s name to either the Ronald McDonald House, 332 Wheeler Avenue, Scranton, PA 18510; or to the Children’s Advocacy Center, 1710 Mulberry Street, Scranton, PA 18510. Both organizations were very dear to Neil.
