Post 4954, both of Old Forge.
A sports fan, his favorite hobby had been collecting baseball cards. He was an adoring father, grandfather and great grandfather who will be dearly missed.

Marcinko, Jr., and wife Jeanne of Chesapeake, Virginia, Daurice Castelli of Scott Twp., and Laurie Hannick and husband Richard of Old Forge, with whom Paul resided; eight grandchildren; five great grandchildren; a daughter-in-law, Valerie Marcinko Gabello of Old Forge; and nieces and nephews.
A son, Bernard (Bernie) Marcinko; brothers, William and John Marcinko; and a son-in-law, Charles Castelli, also preceded him in death.
His family would like to express their appreciation to the entire staff of Traditional Home Health and Hospice, especially nurses Megan and Michelle, for the amazing care and compassion given to both Paul and his family.
