Frank Godlewski, age 75, a lifelong resident of Taylor, passed away Monday at Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore, after an illness. He is survived by his beloved wife and best friend, Mildred (Belles) Godlewski. Wed on April 27, 1968, the couple would have celebrated their 54th wedding anniversary on Wednesday.
Born in Taylor on April 12, 1947 to the loving parents Frank and Violet. (Kwak) Godlewski, Frank was a graduate of the former Taylor-Moosic High School, Class of 1966, before enlisting in the U.S. Army prior to his honorable discharge.
He went on to work for Polk’s Meat Products (Scranton Foods) and N.E. Produce before retiring in 2021 after 13 years with Trichilo Food Services.
Frank never passed up a chance to go to the casino and some of his fondest memories were made on his annual trip to Lake Tobias with his daugher, Jolene, and grandson, Joey.
His humor was infectious as he always knew how to make those around him laugh. Helping those around him meant everything to him. Frank willl be sadly missed by everyone.
Along with his wife, Frank is survived by his grandson, Joey Sokolowski of Taylor; brother Robert Godlewski of Moosic; sisters, Joan Mulherin of Scranton and Patricia “Patt” Valencia of Moosic; and nieces and nephews.
Also preceding him in death was his daughter, Jolene Sokolowski, on February 6, 2020; and siblings, Ronald Godlewski and Bernice Guara.
His family wishes to thank the entire staffs of Sacred Heart Hospice and Moses Taylor Hospital as well as Dr. Kenneth Sebastianelli for the amazing care and compassion collectively given to both Frank and his family.
Military honors by the AMVETS Honor Guard are scheduled for Tuesday at 6:00 PM at the Thomas P Kearney Funeral Home 517 N Main St Old Forge. Family and friends may pay their respects on Tuesday between 4pm-6pm.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Frank’s name to the Lake Tobias Wildlife Park c/o 760 Tobias Road, Halifax PA 17032.
