Charles "Chumly" Mecca Obituary

With deepest sorrow we announce that Charles “Chumly” J. Mecca, 42, of Dunmore, our most beloved father, son, brother, nephew, uncle, family member and friend passed away peacefully but suddenly on Saturday morning at Allied Hospice in Scranton. 

Chumly was the proud and devoted father to his daughter Gabriella and his son Ryan, whom he loved more than life itself.  Together with their mother, Michelle Lynch Mecca, their lives will be forever changed.

Born in Scranton, Chuck is the cherished son of Salvatore A., Jr. and Sharon Nicolais Mecca who will miss him every day.  He was the loving brother of Salvatore A., III and partner Kim, Eugene, AJ and Christopher and wife Janice, all of Dunmore. Nieces and nephews; Julianna, Serenity, Brandon, Benjamin, Owen and Logan Mecca.  Several aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Eugene and Helen Nicolais, Salvatore A., Sr. and most recently his grandmother, Pearl Mecca. His uncle and godfather, Eugene “Chipper” Nicolais.

A lifelong resident of Dunmore, Chumly was a 1999 graduate of Dunmore High School and attended Lycoming College.  His love of cooking spilled over into his professional life where he was a cook at Armetta’s Restaurant in Chinchilla.

Chuck’s brief life was marked by an unwavering love of family and a spirit of kindness for the needs of others.  He had a sense of humor not often easily understood by others and ended nearly every conversation with those he cared for with the words “love you” or “te amo”. 

When he wasn’t cooking for work, family or friends, he could be found in one of two places, home with his children or at an athletic field cheering on his son Ryan.  He enjoyed the outdoors hunting, trap shooting, hiking to his special spot or just walking his dogs. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Thursday at 9:30am at St. Mary of Mt. Carmel Church, Chestnut St. in Dunmore.

Entombment, Cathedral Cemetery in Scranton.
