George Francis Soltis

George Francis Soltis, 80, beloved husband of Doris Soltis, passed away on Monday, February 8, 2021, after a brief illness.

George, son of Mary Sahayda Soltis and the late Joseph “Lefty” Soltis, lived most of his life in Port Griffith. He worked as an electronics technician for RCA and later, Intersil Corporation. George was first and foremost a problem solver. His friends called him “George the Genius” because he could fix just about anything. Most of all, George loved the times that he spent with his family. He will be greatly missed.

In addition to Mary, George leaves behind his wife of nearly 60 years, Doris; his three daughters and their husbands, Jennifer and Jeffrey Mead, Mary Jo and Vince Gubitoso, and Stefanie and Mike Tamulis; five grandchildren, Zoey Gubitoso, Jamie and Josh Mead, and Rory and Jana Tamulis; two great grandchildren, Aubrey and Khloe; and his sister and best casino buddy, Marion Nagy. George was predeceased by his two brothers, Joseph and John Soltis; brother-in-law, Raymond Nagy; and sister-in-law Bernice Soltis.

Following his wishes, there will be no service, but well-wishers are encouraged to leave condolences below. Arrangements are entrusted to Adonizio Funeral Home, LLC, Pittston.

My brother Mike just informed me our Uncle George passed away. He and his whole family were always kind to us and I have nothing but good memories of Mike and I spending time with them when we were growing up.

My whole heart goes out to Aunt Doris, Stefanie, Mary Jo and Jennifer. It has been a long time since we last saw each other but I remember those times as if they were yesterday and I smile when I think of them.

I know how hard it is to lose a loved one and I wish all of you the strength to get through this tough time.

Rest In Peace Uncle George.

Joe Soltis



My sincere condolences to my Aunt Doris, Mary Jo, Jennifer, and Stefanie. I wish you peace and strength during this difficult time.

I have fond memories of my Uncle George taking my brother Joe and me Christmas shopping when we were kids. My mother struggled as a single parent and his generosity ensured we had some fun toys with which to play during the holidays. He also made sure we had a model train set for under the Christmas tree and bikes to ride during the summertime.

Despite the many, many years since I last saw him, his kindness will not be forgotten.

May he rest in eternal peace.

Michael Soltis
