David R. Angelo

David R. Angelo, 81, of 1199 Million Dollar Highway, Kersey, passed away Thursday, June 2, 2016 at his residence after an illness of the past year. He was born February 6, 1935 in Cardiff, son of the late David and Rose Zambanini Angelo. He was a lifelong resident of the area, attended Force schools, and was a graduate of Bennetts Valley High School, class of 1954. He was an employee of SGL retiring in 1997.

On August 29, 1959, in the Queen of the World Church, he married Joanna M. Keller who survives. He is also survived by a daughter, Dawn Gier, and her husband, Joseph, of Ridgway; a son, Mark Angelo, and his wife, Kelly, of Allen, TX; 1 granddaughter, Allie Gier, of Ridgway, who he cherished with all of his heart.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Alma Feldman, and by a brother, Donald Angelo. He was the last member of his immediate family.

David was a member of the St. Boniface Church, a veteran of the United States Army, having served during the Vietnam War, was a member of the Bennetts Valley Legion, and the Sinnamahoning Sportsmen’s Club.

David also was a drummer in various bands throughout his life and hated to play “Wipeout.” He will be known most for being the drummer of “The Sun Rays,” which he played in with his brother, Donny, and his friend, George Berasi, both now deceased. He enjoyed music, especially polkas. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing, where while fishing, was known to fall in many a time.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in the St. Boniface Church on Monday, June 5, 2016, at 10:00 AM with the Rev. Ross Miceli, pastor, officiating. Burial will follow in the St. Boniface Cemetery. Full military rites will be accorded by the Fox Township Servicemen’s Burial Detail.

My deepest sympathy to all of Dave’s family. I will always remember the great music played for so many. Thanks for playing for our wedding reception so very long ago, 1974, “The Sun Rays”. Coming from a musical family, I know the truly good times and fun Dave had by entertaining with his passion of music. You will be remembered by so many with smiles and good memories.

Joann, Mark and Dawn,

I just heard of David’s passing this afternoon. I am so very sorry for your loss. I wish I would have known to come to the service to hug you all. Living up beside you guys when I was growing up on the Million Dollar Highway was sure memorable! Oh what good times we had. And David’s sense of humor was a blessing. The memories of chasing my sister Paula home with his lawn mower (and all of us laughing so hard about it) and teasing her about Geci’s cows, the horseshoe pits and parties, the ice skate rink we all shared one Christmas……these are just a few of the memories I carry with me. What a great place to grow up and what wonderful neighbors! Thanks for sharing your special someone with all of us. May God bless you and protect you during this season of loss. My love to all. xoxoxo
