Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Henry Curtis Scheller, 80, of Taylor, died Wednesday afternoon in Allied Skilled Nursing under hospice care.

Born August 22, 1941 in Scranton, son of the late Frederick Valentine and Martha Schwenker Scheller, Curtis was educated in Peckville schools. Curtis was proud of his 15 year employment at Allied Services prior to his retirement and was featured in an article in the Scranton Times. An avid bowler in Southside, Green Ridge, and Idle Hour Lanes leagues, he was awarded numerous trophies for his accomplishments. A devout catholic, Curtis was a member of St. Patrick’s Parish, Scranton.

Curtis was a loving person who had a heart of gold and a knack for making friends wherever he went. People were drawn to his contagious personality. He had a love for life and airplanes, especially the B-17. Curits enjoyed building and collecting model airplanes and cars. He was a true “Chevy Man”. War movies and Western with the old actors and actresses such as John Wayne, Clark Gable, Paul Newman, Tony Curtis, Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, Betty Davis, Audrey Hepburn, and Elizabeth Taylor were among his favorites. He would read the almanac every year, and could spout off facts after only one reading. Curtis left an impression on hearts everywhere, and will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure to be in his company.

Surviving are his loving sister, and caregiver, Karyn Petitto, and husband, Joe, Taylor; his loving brother, Bruce Scheller, Kentucky; niece, Denise Anderson, and husband, Chris; nephews, Joe Davis, and wife, Jackie, Richard B. Rondomanski, Jr., and wife, Ann, Greg Scheller, and wife, Heather, and Mark Scheller, and wife, Deanna; several great nieces and nephews; and a great great nephew.
