In Loving Memory of Michael Alfonso Raniella

Michael Alfonso Raniella

Michael Alfonso Raniella

Dunmore, PA April 20, 1957 ~ April 11, 2019 Date of Service: April 15, 2019
Michael Alfonso Raniella, 61, Dunmore, died early Thursday morning in Allied Hospice in Scranton. He and his wife, the former Elizabeth “Betsy” Lubas, had celebrated 39 years of marriage on Oct. 20. 
Born in Scranton, the son of the late Alfonso and Magdalen Bokun Raniella, he was a graduate of Dunmore High School class of 1976 and a member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish in Dunmore. Before an injury at work, which led to his disability, he had been employed for many years at the former Specialty Records/WEA/Cinram in Olyphant. Mike was a member of the former Eternal Friendship Club in Dunmore. 
Mike met his wife in high school, and, together, they raised their three children. He was a loving and caring husband and father, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend to so many. He was always willing to help in any way he could, fixing anything and everything for his children and anyone else who asked. He was a car enthusiast, and he loved his daily walks with Gino. Mike was an original member of LMSD’s Dancing Dads. He was a truly good soul, a good man who will be missed by his family more than words can express.
Also surviving are a daughter, Melissa, Dunmore; two sons, Michael Jr. and Brian, both of Dunmore; three sisters, Nancy Kollra, Scranton; Sharon Bruzas and husband, Robert, Dunmore; and Diane DelVecchio, Scranton; two sisters-in-law, Sister Carol Lubas, I.H.M., Dunmore; and Jeanne Marie Waznak, Scranton; a brother-in-law, Joseph Lubas, Jessup; as well as many nieces and nephews; and great-nieces and great-nephews.
The funeral will be Monday from the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home Inc., 318 E. Drinker S. in Dunmore, with Mass of Christian Burial at 9:30 a.m. in St. Mary of Mount Carmel Church in Dunmore. 
Friends may call Sunday from 4 to 7 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, 967 Griffin Pond Road, Clarks Summit, PA 18411.

I'm sorry for your loss. I would see Mr. Raniella walking the dog every day on my drives up and down Green Ridge Street. No matter what the weather was, they were out for a walk. It became such a habit to spot them that I could tell if I was running late by how far ahead of me they were. I looked forward to seeing them even though he had no idea they became part of my routine. I appreciate Mr. Raniella and his pup for being a bright part of my day.
