Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Paul Scioscia, age 77, of Spring Brook Twp., passed away suddenly on Friday morning at Gino J. Merli Veteran Center in Scranton.
Born in Taylor on September 18, 1946, and raised in West Scranton, Paul was the son of the late Gabriel and Mildred R. (Gromelski) Scioscia. A high school football standout, he was a 1965 graduate of West Scranton High School. Upon graduation he proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War while earning the National Defense Medal prior to his honorable discharge on November 1, 1971.
After working for two decades for Trane Manfacturing Co., he would go on to spend another twenty years employed as a sheet metal worker for Tobyhanna Army Depot prior to his well-deserved 2020 retirement.
A skilled trout fisherman and an avid hunter, Paul was a true outdoorsman. He possessed an admirable work ethic, and never passed up a good flea market sale. Above all else was his kindness. A wonderful man with a kind soul, he will never be forgotten by his family and friends.
Paul is survived by his caregiver and “sweetheart” of 26 years, Sandy (DiDario) Ozark of Taylor; his son, Paul Scioscia and wife Betty of Dallas; his grandsons, Ethan and Bryden; his brothers, Frank Scioscia of Old Forge and Stanley Scioscia of Danville, Ca.; and nieces and nephews.
A brother, Karl Scioscia, preceded him in death.
His family would like to thank the entire team of Gino J. Merli Veterans Center for the amazing care given to Paul throughout his stay.
Blessing services are scheduled for Thursday at 10:00 AM in the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, with burial and military rites by the AMVETS Honor Guard to follow at Holy Cross Cemetery in Old Forge.
Family and friends may pay their respects on Wednesday between 4-7:00 PM at the funeral home. Please visit the funeral home’s website for directions or to leave a condolence.
