In Remembrance of John "Jack" D. Sileo


John "Jack" D. Sileo

Dunmore, PA January 14, 1938 ~ January 16, 2012 Date of Service: January 20, 2012


John “Jack” D. Sileo, 74, of Dunmore died Monday at home. He is survived by his wife, the former Mary Angela Pace. The couple celebrated 51 years of marriage on May 8 2011.

Born in Scranton, he was the son of the late Thomas and Margaret Davis Sileo and was a member of SS Anthony and Rocco Parish, Dunmore. He was a 1955 Dunmore High School Graduate and was the owner and operator of Anna Maria’s Restaurant in Dunmore for the past 26 years.

Jack was an avid golfer, enjoyed traveling, had a passion for jazz music and was a loyal Frank Sinatra fan. He enjoyed having discussions about politics and sports with his friends and patrons but his grandchildren were his pride and joy. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

The family would like to give a special thank you to his sister and one of his caretakers, Sharon Noto for all of her love and support in caring for her brother. Also, to Dr. David Cognetti and his nurse, Amy from the Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia for all of their care and compassion over the years and to Dr. Enrico Serine, his nurses and staff.

I just saw the Restaurant Impossible episode and saw that it was dedicated to your husband. Just want to let you know it brought tears to my eyes. Keep up the good work with restaurant.

The thing I remember most about Jack was his sense of humor and I saw it displayed many times at school board meetings, particularly when he would "bait" the opposition. I never heard Jack say a bad word about anyone. And he was quite ob viously well respected in the community. Although I saw him less frequently in recent years,I will miss him none the less. God bless all of you.

Dear Mrs Sileo and family,
On behalf of the Dunmore School District, I would like to express our deepest sympathy on Jack's passing. I know during his years on the school board he served the community with diginity and honor. He always had the best interest of the students and school district in mind. We will observe a moment of silence in his honor at our next school board meeting. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
