Val passed away from a sudden and debilitating illness, surrounded by those that loved him in his final hours. Val was a lifelong resident of Carbondale and was born on Valentine’s Day.  He was a 1960 graduate of the former Fell High School in Simpson, PA.  While growing up, Val was an avid basketball player, altar boy and member of Holy Trinity Church in Simpson.  Throughout college, he worked as a waiter at the Laurels Resort in the NY Catskill Mountains. He graduated from Lackawanna College with a degree in Accounting, continuing his education at the University of Scranton. Val held accounting roles of increasing responsibility throughout his career, prior to his early retirement as a Controller and Treasurer. Val enjoyed business and working with numbers with a passion, especially helping his son and grandson throughout their college accounting homework.

Although Val had traveled the world, to St. Lucia, St. Martin and Florida repeatedly, he rather enjoyed the simpler things, like spending time with his family, weekly grocery shopping with his son, enjoying the daily cup of Dunkin coffee with his wife, washing his car, cutting his own grass, attending countless NY Yankee games, fishing and boating at Lake Wallenpaupack and enjoying time at the family pool with his two grandchildren.  Although Val was a lifelong runner, running enough miles to encircle the Earth more than a dozen times, he could not outrun mortality.  He was loved deeply by his family, looked up to as a role model and will forever be missed, but never forgotten.

Val is survived by his wife of 56 years of marriage, Ann (Pettinato), only son Lawrence, daughter-in-law Jennifer and two grandchildren, Jordan and Aiden, whom he deeply cherished.

A Memorial Mass will be Thursday, May 27th, at 9:30 AM in St. Michael’s Church, 46 Midland St., Simpson.  He will be laid to rest at Our Lady of Grace Cemetery, Langhorne, PA.  Arrangements are by the Joseph W Scotchlas Funeral Home, Inc., Simpson. For condolences visit:
