Frederick Christopher Lokuta

Frederick Christopher Lokuta, 60, of Dupont, passed away peacefully Saturday, December 26, 2020, at home surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Wilkes-Barre on September 8, 1960, he was the son of Joan A. (Bellomo) Lokuta of Dupont and the late Frederick P. Lokuta.

Fred was a graduate of Pittston Area High School where he began dating the love of his life, Linda and was a District Champion wrestler. He later went on to graduate from Marywood University before beginning his lifetime career in the field of care for individuals with intellectual disabilities—a passion very dear to his heart. After 30 years of service and numerous director positions, he retired as Deputy Secretary in the Office of Human Services for Intellectual Disability Services for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Following his retirement from the State, he worked as Executive Vice President of Compliance & Quality for Inperium, Inc., a non-profit corporation providing person-centric health related supports.

Fred was inseparable with his wife, Linda. Together, they enjoyed raising their children, entertaining their family at their house, or a simple Saturday morning shopping trip. Their love was like a storybook spanning over 40 years with endless amounts of wonderful, loving memories.

Among Fred’s many titles, “Father” was his most cherished. He never tired of making his children feel unconditionally loved. He always encouraged them to aim to be their best; he was with them each step of the way to celebrate every high and pick them up during every low. Whether his kids were graduating, cheerleading, or landing a job, Fred could always be seen beaming with pride. People would often tell him; “If you don’t succeed at anything else in life, you can rest assured knowing you are an outstanding father.”

Through Polish holiday customs, Rehoboth Beach vacations, Penn State football games, or just an informal weekend gathering, Fred’s greatest joy was in surrounding himself with extended family. He adored his nieces and nephews and was always present to offer advice or comfort. Above all, Fred taught his family to love unconditionally, appreciate life’s small moments, and to ceaselessly strive to carry forth the traditions that bind us all together.

In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by a sister, Kimberly Ann Lokuta and mother-in-law, Gloria Gemzik Scyrba.

Surviving in addition to his mother, is his wife of 34 years, Linda (Scyrba) Lokuta; son Atty. Frederick John Lokuta and his fiancée Nicole Kozak; daughter Camaryn Lokuta and her partner Justen Bizik; brother Michael Lokuta and Kathleen Sweeney; sister-in-law Cheryl (Ceresi) Lokuta all of Dupont; sisters Sharon Lokuta and wife Nicci Landrum, Indiana and Jennifer Maslowski and her husband David, Duryea; father-in-law, John Scyrba, Dupont; numerous nieces, nephews, great-niece, and great-nephews.

Private funeral services will be held at the convenience of the family with a Mass of Christian Burial in Corpus Christi Parish, West Pittston and interment in Sacred Heart of Jesus Cemetery, Dupont. In lieu of flowers we kindly ask donations be made to the AstraZeneca Hope Lodge of Philadelphia in Fred’s name.

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

Rest in peace, my friend. I worked with Fred in the state system. I later reconnected with him upon the death of my own brother who was receiving community services. My sincerest condolences to Fred's family and friends. The world has truly lost a great man. He truly cared about Pennsylvania's most vulnerable citizens. Rest assured he will watch over all of you and we will see him again. Prayers, hugs and light. God bless all of you. Sandy Kline

To Mike and the extended Lokuta family. Fred’s legacy on this earth will live on through many generations. His compassion and humility toward others were God sent through which many people were blessed. During this hard and almost impossible time rest assured Jesus’s presence will be with you each and every day. As time passes, the sting of his passing will be replaced with the joy of memories that will put a smile on your face. Please take care of yourselves and our prayers are with you.
