Anthony J. Ciliberto, Sr

Anthony J. Ciliberto, Sr., affectionately referred to as Snailor, 93, of the Old Boston section of Jenkins Twp., passed away Saturday, May 4, 2024, at Allied Services Skilled Nursing Center, following a brief illness.

Born in Pittston on October 24, 1930, he was the son of the late John and Mary Nardone Ciliberto.

He was a graduate of Jenkins Township High School. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather and will be truly missed.  His grandchildren and great-grandchildren lit up his life.  He was always quick to sneak them money when they walked in the door, saying, “Quick, put it in your pocket.” And especially for his littlest great- grandchild, Willa Joan. Though he enjoyed spending time cheering on his grandkids when he was younger, and hunting with his sons, what he liked most of all as he got older was to hear all the stories from their busy lives.  He never forgot a birthday, never forgot a card, and always checked in to see how the latest sporting event went. 

He began working in the coal mines the day after he graduated high school with Joe Lussi. He continued at different breakers, working with Peter Scatena, then Rocky Domiano, before finishing his career with Popple Brothers Coal Company.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Isabelle, his brother Peter and sister-in-law Marie, and brother-in-law Thomas Warke, and daughter-in-law, Joan.

Surviving are his brother Albert and wife Albina, Old Forge, sisters, Mary Ann, Scranton, and Patricia Warke, Sugar Notch, sons, Anthony J. Ciliberto Jr., Bear Creek Twp.; and Dino J. Ciliberto and wife, Maureen, Pittston; grandchildren, Emily Bell and her husband, Geoff, Bear Creek Twp., Rebecca Kirby and her husband Robert, Plains, and Anthony D. Ciliberto, Keystone; great-grandchildren, Caleb, Lila, and Willa, and numerous nieces and nephews. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday, May 10, 2024, at 9:30am in St. Joseph Marello Parish, 237 William Street, Pittston. Those attending are asked to go directly to the church.  Interment, Denison Cemetery. 

Arrangements are entrusted to Adonizio Funeral Home, LLC, 251 William Street, Pittston.

Dear Anthony and Dino,

So very sorry to hear of your father’s passing. While we did not know him personally, he had to be a wonderful to have raised such wonderful sons. May the passage of time and the comfort of family and friends help to ease your grief.
