Marcus Santarelli of Blakely died Tuesday December 17, 2019 at the Regional Hospital of Scranton following his struggle with addiction and many years of love and support from his family and friends.
Born in Scranton he was the son of David F. Santarelli Sr. and his fiancée Rev. Dr. Carmelita Memolo and Lorri Mitchko Santarelli.
A graduate of North Pocono High School, Class of 2008, he was employed as a plumbing and heating technician.
Marcus loved his family and the world. But more than anyone else, he loved his daughter, Penelope. Having a magnetic personality, he was known to be extremely polite and musically talented. He played the guitar and was self-taught like his idols Jerry Garcia and John Mayer.
Opening up about a loved one’s addiction puts families in a vulnerable situation. It opens them up to judgement and criticism from friends, family, and even strangers. Pretending that addiction is not happening does not make it go away. How we talk about addiction and those it affects is important. Know that hundreds of thousands of families who have lost someone to this disease are praying and rooting for you.
Also surviving are fiancé Jennifer Franco, Blakely; daughter Penelope Santarelli, at home; brothers David Santarelli Jr. and wife Virginia Cruz-Santarelli, Florida and Tyler Santarelli, Olyphant; niece Sofia Santarelli; paternal grandmother Elaine Santarelli; maternal grandfather Leonard Mitchko; his beloved dog, "Pip;" several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by cousins AJ Veno and infant Fernando Veno; paternal grandfather Fernando "Pop Pop" Santarelli; uncle Kenneth Santarelli; maternal grandmother Margaret Mitchko.
The funeral will be conducted Saturday at 10 am from the Arthur A. Albini Funeral Home, 1003 Church St., Jessup, with Mass of Christian Burial at 11 am in the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish, 1101 Willow St., Peckville. Everyone attending the funeral is asked to kindly proceed directly to church. Interment will be private at the convenience of the family.. Friends and family may pay their respects Friday from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Penelope Santarelli Memorial Fund, C/O NBT Bank, 1230 O’Neil Highway, Dunmore, PA 18512.
