Joseph F. Santaniello passed away peacefully the morning of Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017, at his home in Moscow with family members by his side. He bravely fought cancer since his diagnosis in February.

Joe was born Oct. 23, 1938, in Scranton. He was the son of the late Michael and Amelia Santaniello. He was a graduate of Scranton Central High School and received a Bachelor of Science in political science from Sophia University and a master's degree in education at the University of Southern California. 

Joe proudly served his country for 23 years in the Air Force. He enlisted in 1957, and before his retirement in 1980, the Vietnam War veteran achieved the rank of senior master sergeant. During his service, he was awarded the Air Force Longevity in Service Award, Air Force National Defense Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross and Meritorious Service Medal. His service took him around the world where he met his wife, Sumiko, in Tokyo, Japan. They were married May 24, 1963. After many assignments, Joe was excited to come home and raise his family in the Pennsylvania community he loved.

He would work in the personnel department of the Tobyhanna Army Depot for 20 years. Joe "retired" a couple of times but was asked to return to the Depot because of institutional knowledge, positive attitude and work ethic. 

Joe loved to celebrate his Italian American heritage, had an intense interest in local and national politics, fiercely cheered for the New York Yankees and loved to relax to the music of Frank Sinatra and Mario Lanza.

Joe was a member of the Knights of Columbus, a lector and Eucharistic Minister at St. Catherine of Sienna Church and a member of UNICO.

More than anything, Joe will be remembered as a kind, fun-loving husband, father, grandfather, sibling and uncle who loved any gathering, holiday or sporting event that brought his family members together.

He is survived by his wife, Sumiko, Madison Twp.; and daughters, Amelia Santaniello Vascellaro and husband, Frank, Minneapolis; and Michele Pehanick, Moscow; brother, Anthony and wife, Trudy, Roaring Brook; and sisters, Madeline, Dunmore; and Michele Bonifanti and husband, George, Hummelstown; and loving nieces, nephews and cousins. His six beloved grandchildren are Olivia, Chloe and Isabelle Pehanick, and Sam, Joseph and Francesca Vascellaro.

The family would like to thank Fox Chase Cancer Center and Traditional Home Health and Hospice for the loving care given by the doctors and nurses. 

Visitation will be Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2018, at Duffy and Snowdon Funeral Home, 401 Church St., Moscow, PA 18444, from 4 to 8 p.m. Mass of Catholic Burial is Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018, at 10 a.m. at St. Catherine of Sienna Church, 220 Church St., Moscow 18444.
