Anthony Volpicelli, 82, was a man full of personality, quick wit, love, curiosity and strong will.
He had a tremendous enthusiasm for life, a fighting spirit and a sense of fun that will be remembered by those who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Among those people are the hundreds he served through his more than 20 years of service at Saint Francis of Assisi Parish, Nanticoke. In addition to his preparation of Thanksgiving dinners at the church, he also treated the community to his authentic spaghetti dinners.
He was a proud veteran of the Korean War and achieved several service decorations.
His handsome voice and congenial attitude will be joyfully remembered by those who loved him most, his daughter Linda Walkowiak, and her husband, David; granddaughters, Jaclyn Moser and her husband, Seth; Lindsey Sears and her husband, Will.
Private funeral services were held at Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 173 E. Green St., Nanticoke. Interment was in St. Francis Cemetery.
