Anthony O. Chimento

Anthony O. Chimento, 88, of West Pittston and Naples, Florida entered eternal rest Friday, January 8, 2021, at the Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Plains Township. He was surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Yatesville on April 25, 1932, he was the son of the late John and Mary Martino Chimento. He was a graduate of Jenkins Township High School and Temple University where he received an associate’s degree in Electrical Engineering. Anthony proudly served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. While in service he was awarded the National Defense Metal, The United Nation Service Metal, and The Korean War Service Metal with one bronze star.

Anthony started his professional career at Link Aviation. Prior to his retirement he was a supervisor in the Automated Systems Division at Tobyhanna Army Depot, retiring after 35 years.

Anthony was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He was a family man in the purest sense. His love for his family knew no bounds. He spent his life putting the needs of those he loved before his own. He was a man of deep faith. He served as a Eucharistic Minister at Corpus

Christi Parish.

For Anthony, family and faith matter above all, with Penn State football a close second. He loved attending and watching the games with his family and cheering on his Nittany Lions. He also enjoyed his winters in Florida, his daily walks through the streets of West Pittston, and marveling the beauty of sunsets with the promise of a new day. He taught his family that lesson of love.

No one kept him on his toes and made him laugh like his daughter and sidekick, Jolene. They had a spontaneous, funny, and playful banter that was wonderful to witness. He had a special twinkle in his eye when he was with his great granddaughter Ellie. She was truly his shining star.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife Carmella Lombardi Chimento and son Anthony Chimento.

Surviving are his children, Judith Cefalo and her husband Michael, Exeter; Jolene Chimento, at home; and Kevin Chimento and his wife Robin, Louisiana; grandchildren, Carla Goode and her husband Dustin, Louisiana; Toni Chimento, Louisiana; Michael Cefalo and his wife Jacqueline, Shavertown; and Matthew Cefalo, California; great-grandchildren, Owen Goode and Elyiana Cefalo; brothers, James Chimento, Pittston, Joseph Chiumento, Jenkins Township, and Nicholas Chiumento, Yatesville; sisters, Antoinette Vidzar and her husband Anthony, Yatesville and Elizabeth Chimento, Yatesville; numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank Dr. James Brady and the entire Geisinger staff for their wonderful care of our father. We would also like to thank Father Paul McDonnell for his spiritual guidance.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, funeral services will be private and at the convenience of the family with a Mass of Christian Burial in Corpus Christi Parish and interment in West Pittston Cemetery. Arrangements are entrusted to Adonizio Funeral Home, LLC, 251 William Street, Pittston.

Kevin, Judy, Michael, Jolene and your families. I am deeply saddened for the loss of your father and my brother Anthony. I will always remember him for our childhood memories and grown up dreams we talked about and had. Lately I enjoyed those beautiful day I spent with him and my very special niece Jolene and brother Joseph, we talked and laughed a lot together as we relived our childhood days over and over again. They were precious times that I will never forget. Losing someone we love is never easy and we must be thankful for those memories, may the soul of my Brother Anthony Rest In Peace forever, Amen. Till we meet and talk again, Brother Nick.
