Obituary for Robert V. Petrini Sr.

Robert V. Petrini Sr., 81, of Covington Twp., formerly of Archbald died Sunday July 17, 2022 at home.

Born in Jessup he was the son of the late Peter and Dora Taramelli Petrini. A graduate of Jessup High School, he proudly served in the United States Army. Prior to retirement he was employed as a corrections officer at SCI Waymart, formerly Farview.

Affectionately known as “Papa,” he was an avid outdoorsman, and loved being in nature to hunt, fish, and boat. A die-hard Valley View Cougars fan, he never missed a football home game until his illness. He loved going to Fabri’s Capri Marina every Sunday where he would cook for everyone. He was a member of American Legion Post #327, Olyphant.

Bob’s family would like to extend a very special thank you to all of the nurses and staff of Allied Hospice for all of their kind and compassionate care.

Surviving are daughter, Libby Petrini with whom he resided; sons
Peter Petrini and Robert Jr; grandchildren Melina Petrini, Robert Petrini III, John Montgomery, Neil Montgomery; great-grandchildren Delilah and Bailey Montgomery; sister Diane Bianconi; nieces and nephews.
