Obituary of Valentino P. Grassetti

Valentino P. Grassetti, 93, of Dickson City, passed away at home on Friday. His wife is the former Carrie L. Rizzo, Dickson City. The couple was married for 62 years. Born in Olyphant, he was the son of the late Primo and Stefana Chearno Grassetti. Tino graduated from Olyphant High School where he was an outstanding athlete so much so that he was offered collegiate scholarships in baseball, football and basketball. He was a veteran of the US Army and Army National Guard having served during the Korean War. He worked for several companies throughout his career in sales and marketing. His work ethic was second to none as was evident by the fact that in 1974 he went to work for Pennsylvania Paper and Supply Company where he continued to service his customers and support his company's growth until his death. Tino dedicated his life to his family and his community. He was a football coach, a school board member, supporter of the Mid Valley Booster Club and a St Patrick's/Holy Cross Catholic church parishioner. Tino was an avid golfer, fisherman and hunter; and above all he was a kind, giving, and loving husband, father, nonno, brother and friend who will be dearly missed.

Grassetti Jr. and wife Lori, Arvada, CO, Dianne Kaschak and husband Paul, Clarksville, MD, Samuel Grassetti, Dickson City, and Catherine Grassetti and husband Richard Zadroga, Gilbertsville, PA; eight grandchildren, Paul John, Maria, Adrianna, Rachel, Carson, Lena, Sophia, and Faith; a Paternal Aunt, Bruna Grassetti Macutkiewicz, Notts, England, a brother, Stephen Grassetti and wife Patsy, of Taylor, a sister, Tina Jackowitz and husband Stephen, of Olyphant.
