Obituary of Anthony Vitaletti

Anthony "Butch" Vitaletti, 76, of Clarks Green, passed away Sunday at The University of Pennsylvania Hospital surrounded by his loving wife of 53 years, Bonnie Banko Vitaletti of Dunmore, his three children, and oldest granddaughter. Born in Peckville, he was the son of the late Anthony and Caroline Brunori Vitaletti. He was a graduate of Scranton Tech High School, The Pennsylvania State University and a member of the U.S. Army Reserves. Butch was co-owner of National Bakery in Scranton, along with his brother Rick, which his father began in 1946. He carried on his father's legacy until his retirement. He was a loving and dedicated catholic family man to Bonnie, his children, Kristen, Tony and Dana and his seven grandchildren, who affectionately called him Nonno. They were his pride and joy and he loved spending time with them. There was nothing he wouldn't do for them. Butch resided in Clarks Green for the past 20 years and, as an avid golfer, was a member of the Scranton Country Club. He enjoyed his Tuesday night golf league and the comradery with his golfing buddies. He tended to his garden with passion and took pride in his tomatoes. He touched so many family and friends with his kindness and generosity. He will be forever remembered and deeply missed by all that had the privilege to be in his company. Surviving him are his wife Bonnie, his two daughters; Kristen Levant and husband, Chad, Holmdel, New Jersey; and Dana Vitaletti, South Abington Township; his son, Anthony Vitaletti III and fiance, Trinka Ravaioli; his seven grandchildren, Anna Claire, Mason, Stella, Isabel, Jude, Ethan, and Sam; his sister, Barabara Vitaletti Hall and husband, Arthur, Dickson City; his brother, Enrico Vitaletti and wife, Diane, Justice; his brother-in-law John Banko and wife, Paula, Dickson City; his Aunt Connie Vitaletti, Peckville; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. The family would like to thank the entire staff of The University of Pennsylvania Hospital for the skill and compassion they afforded Butch while he was in their care, with a special thank you to Dr. Joshua Grimm and his special team for the around the clock care and comfort they provided Butch and his family.
