John J. Murone | 80
John J. Murone, 80, of 120 Wehler Road, St. Marys, passed away Saturday, December 10, 2022, at his residence, with his family by his side.
He was born April 24, 1942, in Wishaw, PA son of the late James and Adeline Stefanelli Murone. John moved to St. Marys in 1955 and graduated from St. Marys High School in 1960. He was a committed member of the St. Marys community and owned Murones TV and Appliance. He valued his customers but above all, he valued their friendship over the years.
On June 17, 1972, in the United Methodist Church in Emporium, John married Sally J. Poorman who survives. They were blessed to share 50 years of marriage together.
Along with his loving wife, he is survived by his daughter, Lisa Bauer (Frank) of St. Marys; his son, John Murone of Roaring Spring, PA; two grandchildren: Matthew Bauer (Bekah) and Alanna Lilja; great-grandchildren: Kennedy, Araya, and Lorenzo; his sister Rosemary Carnovale of St. Marys; and by many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, John was predeceased by his brothers-in-law, Frank Carnovale and Jeri Poorman.
John was a member of the Queen of the World Church, the Elks Club, Moose Club, and was involved with the Businessmen’s Association for many years. After his retirement, he enjoyed working for Prontock Distributing part-time. He donated his time and talents toward the Bavarian Festival when it was held on the Diamond and was a proud sponsor of the Polka Party on WKBI for over 50 years. He would look forward to his annual fishing trip to Galeton but nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his family and friends.
Family and friends are invited to attend a funeral service in the Lynch-Radkowski Funeral Home on Saturday, December 17, 2022 at 10:30 AM, with the Rev. Jeffery Noble and the Rev. Sang Hak Lee, officiating. Burial will follow in the St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.
