January 25, 2019
Raymond D. Zelenack Sr., 87, of Hazleton passed away Friday.
Born in Hazleton, he was the son of the late Joseph and Emma Holodick Zelenack.
Raymond was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Rose Gillespie Zelenack; sister, Dorothy Sacco; and brother, Thomas Zelenack.
Surviving are his four children, Raymond Zelenack Jr., Joseph Zelenack, Gary Zelenack and Gale Rae Zelenack and their spouses; several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews; and longtime companion, Ida Dibello.
Raymond was a life resident of Hazleton. He was a masonry contractor who continued to work well into his 80s. An avid sports fan and all-around athlete in his own right, Ray was a member of many local ball clubs. He played in adult basketball leagues into his 60s, fast-pitch softball until he was almost 75, and golfed and bowled into his mid-80s.
In holding to Ray’s wishes, services are private and at the convenience of his children.
Hilary J. Bonin Funeral Home, 99 West Green St., West Hazleton, is assisting the family.
