James P. “Jimmy” Ardoline

James P. “Jimmy” Ardoline, 73, of Pittston, passed away in Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center surrounded by family on Saturday, November 5, 2022.

Born in Scranton on December 11, 1948, he was the son of the late Bert and Catherine Loftus Ardoline.


Jimmy lived in Pittston until 2015. He then resided at Wesley Village. He was known as “Mayor” and loved by all. He was very active in the Pittston community and active in his church community. He loved the Pittston Area Baseball team; where he was involved for forty years. He was an associate coach and especially proud of the dug-out that bears his name. He was active with Pittston City Ambulance and the Pittston City Fire Department. Jimmy loved his church, St. Joseph Marello Parish, Pittston, where he was a member of the Holy Name Society and assisted with CCD classes and the annual church picnic. He loved attending the St. Ann Novena in Scranton and went every year with the Melone Family. Jimmy received the Sam Falcone Lifetime Services award in May of 2008.


In addition to his parents, Jimmy was preceded in death by brothers, Charlie (Catherine) Ardoline; William (Ann) Ardoline; and Michael Ardoline; and sister, Margaret Ardoline; and sister-in-law, Arlene Ardoline.


He is survived by brothers Robert E. Ardoline, Harding and Raymond (Natalie) Ardoline, Alexandria, VA as well as numerous cousins.


Special thank you to Rev. Paul McDonnell, the Melone Family, Loretta Chruma (his best friend at Wesley Village), Joseph Ranieli and his radio show Bocci Ally (which Jimmy loved); telephone buddies Bernie Babonus, Ann Hrobak and many more.


Jimmy was loved wherever he went and knew everyone. He would say “Momma said stay progressive” - and that is what he did. No words could ever say what an integral part of our lives and family Jimmy was. He will be missed!


The family will receive friends and relatives Thursday, November 10, 2022, from 5pm-7pm in Adonizio Funeral Home, LLC, 251 William Street, Pittston.

I am so incredibly sorry to hear this. Jimmy came over to our porch daily when my father was still alive. He would watch the bus for my boys to get home from school and wait for them. Such a beautiful soul. My deepest sympathies,
