Frank T. "Molly" Summa, Sr.

Dunmore, PA April 30, 1925 ~ September 9, 2017 Date of Service: September 14, 2017

Frank T. "Molly" Summa Sr., 92, of Dunmore, died Saturday evening at Geisinger Community Medical Center. He and his wife, the former Angeline Carlo, would have celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary on Oct. 16.

Born in Dunmore, son of the late James and Josephine Bonavoglia Summa, he was a graduate of Dunmore High School and was an Army veteran of World War II. After basic training at Fort Knox, Ky., he was then stationed in Oregon before going overseas to the Philippines and joining the 33rd Infantry 124th Artillery Division and training for the invasion of Japan on Sept. 14, 1945. Before leaving the Philippines, Frank was promoted to corporal.

After his service, Frank worked as a carpenter and joined Carpenters Union Local 261 in 1953, where he served as an officer for 25 years. He worked on many schools and industrial projects in the area and was also a carpenter instructor for National Home Builders. He was a member of the American Legion in Dunmore for 70 years.

He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He loved his family dearly and had a special place in his heart for each and every one of us. He was caring and funny, which is what everyone loved about him, especially his wife, Angeline. He will be missed in our lives but will always stay in our hearts forever. It's never goodbye, it's see you later. Ciao.

Also surviving are sons, James and wife, Linda; Frank T. Jr. and wife, Lori; and Richard and wife, Maria, all of Dunmore; daughters, Judy Finella and husband, Alex; and Roseann DeSavino and husband, Dino, both of Moscow; 16 grandchildren, James, Natalie, Erica, Nicole, Amanda, Brittany, Michael, Marina, Taryn, Nicholas, Francesca, Gianna, Nico, Gabriella, Lucia and Sophia; and great-grandchildren, Emelina, Lucy, Max, Mason and Francine.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Salvatore Lawrence and his nurse Julie for their special and compassionate care.
