Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Ross “Sal” Prizzi, age 92, of Pittston, passed away on Friday evening at Allied Hospice in Scranton, after an illness. He is survived by the love of his life, Cecelia (Roman) Prizzi. Wed on March 3, 1965, the couple were married for 58 years.
Born on June 13, 1931 and raised in Dunmore, Ross was the son of the late Santo and Rosaria (Amico) Prizzi. He had worked for Bradley-Lawless Pontiac of Scranton; Northeast Express, Inc. of Mountaintop; and Popple Coal Co. in Old Forge, prior to his retirement.
He had cherished his biker rides with his nephew, Joe Kazmercyk; his bygone 1957 Chevy Convertible; anything country western; watching wrestling; and, most of all, his son, Santo, who he taught mechanics to and worked on vintage vehicles with. Ross was certainly a master auto mechanic.
He also cherished moments with his wife while traveling to the Thousand Islands, Ontario; Bangor, Maine; Dollywood, Tennesse; and to country western concerts.
Just as he would want, raise a shot glass of Southern Comfort in his memory. He’ll long be missed by his loved ones.
Along with Cecelia, he is also survived by his loving son and daughter-in-law, Santo Przzi and wife Lisa of Pittston; a brother-in-law, Walter Roman; nieces and nephews, including nephew and best friend, Rocco Valvano and wife Mary Jane, Joseph Kazmercyk, Joan Pilvelait, Daniel and Steve Goobic, Bruce and Patty Matthews, Kathy D’Ambrosio, Janet and Joe Roman, Carol Katrenicz, John, Frank and Jim Roman; best friends, Lorraine Dulski and Larry and Tony Sokol; and beloved cats, “Chevy” and “Spirit”.
Ross was also preceded in death by a daughter, Regina Prizzi; an infant son, Rosario Prizzi; a sister, Lena Valvano and husband Frank; and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Jean Kazmercyk, Rose Goobic, John, Frank, Peter and Joseph Roman; and dear friends, “Legs” and Vince Castellano.
His family would like to acknowledge and thank the entire staffs of Geisinger Community Medical Center, especially Dr. Saul Rigau, and Allied Hospice, for the tremendous care given to both Ross and his family throughout his illness.
Private arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
