Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Ambrose (Beezer) Belles, 83, of Old Forge, died Wednesday morning at Hospice of the Sacred Heart Inpatient Unit in Dunmore after an illness. His beloved wife of 48 years, Margaret Ellen Belles, preceded him in death on Dec. 23, 2003.
Born in Moosic on Dec. 4, 1933, and son of the late Andrew and Margaret Smith Belles, Ambrose attended the former Moosic High School. A proud Air Force veteran of the Korean War, he served his country from 1952 until his honorable discharge in 1956. While stationed stateside, he met his soulmate, the former Margaret Ellen Conway, before moving back home, getting married and beginning a family.
A lifelong truck driver, he operated his own truck for most of his career. He was also a longtime member of the Moosic Alliance Community Church.
Possessing an amazing sense of humor, Ambrose was kind-hearted, giving to a fault and a true man of his word. His family, especially all of his grandchildren, meant the world to him. Loved by all of those who knew him, he will be dearly missed.
He is survived by five children, Cindy Oldershaw and husband, Robert, of Bear Creek; Sherry Hodak and husband, Richard, of Avoca; Howard Belles of Scranton, Robert Belles and wife, Phyllis, of Grand Island, N.Y.; and Mark Belles and companion, Tracy Publik, of Old Forge; four siblings, Anna Mae Hughes and husband, William, of Old Forge; Beverly Webb of Moosic, Joseph Belles of Old Forge and Mildred Godlewski and husband, Frank, of Taylor; 16 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and nieces and nephews.
A brother, Howard Milton Belles; and a former daughter-in-law, Shirley Belles, also preceded him in death.
Funeral services are scheduled for Monday at 10 a.m. in the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 517 N. Main St., Old Forge. Interment with full military rites by the AMVETS Honor Guard will follow at Fairview Memorial Park, Elmhurst Twp.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Sunday between 1 to 4 p.m. at the funeral home.
In appreciation for the tremendous care the entire staff gave to Ambrose, the family asks that any memorial contributions be made to Hospice of the Sacred Heart, c/o 600 Baltimore Dr # 7, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702.
