Frank T. Rutledge, 39, of West Pittston passed away Saturday morning, Aug. 30, 2014, from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born in West Pittston, he was the son of Dorothy Tilletski Wendol of Slocum Township, and the late Francis W. Rutledge.
Frank was a graduate of Wyoming Area High School, and was employed by Latona Trucking.
Frank is a man that when you met him you knew you had a friend forever.
He had an infectious laugh, smile, blue eyes that would melt your heart, and a heart of gold. His friends, who he loved as his family, have lost a special man.
What can you say about a man who was loved by everyone's life he touched? Frank was a very hard worker and would always be there for anyone who needed him at any time.
The word NO was not in his vocabulary.
His three rules of life were: never say you're sorry, never say thank you, and never make me repeat myself.
Frank was a fan and loved UFC fighting, fantasy football, where he would argue and feud with his friends over draft picks and roster choices, the Pittsburgh Steelers, Notre Dame football, and the New York Yankees.
Frank also loved his two cats, Baba and Caesar, that sadly left him, and he loved the ocean and always wanted to swim with the dolphins.
Everybody's life that Frank has touched will be sadly missing a part of their heart. He will be sadly missed, but never forgotten by all that knew him. Heaven has received a true angel.
He was preceded in death by his father, Francis W. Rutledge.
Surviving are his girlfriend, Kathy Webb, West Pittston; mother, Dorothy Wendol, Slocum Township; paternal grandmother, Jessie (Jaye) Rutledge, West Pittston; sisters, Jennifer Wendol, Nanticoke; and Gail Marosevitch and her husband, Randy, Plymouth; nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends.
Funeral services for Frank will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Corcoran Funeral Home Inc., 20 S. Main St., Plains Township. Friends may call from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home.
