Salvatore Occhipinti, 92 of Dunmore, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday morning. He was preceded in death by the love of his life, his wife, Alice Wheatly Occhipinti, his sister Mille, his brother Joe, & daughter-in-law Christal. Son of the late John & Margret Ross Occhipinti, Sal was a lifelong Dunmorean, and an active member of the community. He was a member of Saints Anthony & Rocco Parish in Dunmore and a retired employee of the Scranton Sewer Authority.
Sal is survived by his sister Annmarie Talarico, daughter Sharon, sons John & Ron, grandchildren Devon Earles, Ryan Meyers, Jordyn, Taylor, Riley, Johnnie, Londy, Justin & Gia Occhipinti. Step- grandchild Becky Meyers, great- grandchildren Allie, Caden, Lyla & Mischa, as well as, many beloved nieces, nephews & inlaws. Above all else, Sal loved his family & he cherished the considerable time he shared with them.
Sal was an accomplished bowler and windmill fastball softball pitcher. He was an avid golfer and a gifted sketch artist. However, Sal’s greatest and most notable talent, by far, was joke telling. He had an innate ability to capture hearts through his jokes. Wherever he went, laughter followed. Family, friends, and acquaintances & strangers alike, would gather around him, just to listen to his jokes.
A funeral Mass will take place at 10 AM on Wednesday, April 7th at Saints Anthony & Rocco Church on Smith Street in Dunmore. All those attending the Mass are kindly and respectfully asked to socially distance and are required to wear a mask.
Interment, Cathedral Cemetery Scranton.
There are no public calling hours.
