Raymond C. Roskie


Raymond C. Roskie, 87, of Wheatland, passed away on Wednesday Jan. 16, 2019, at Sharon Regional Medical Center after a courageous battle with lung cancer.
Raymond was born Nov. 11, 1931, in Hubbard, Ohio, a son of John and Annie Gale Roskie.
He was a 1949 graduate of Hubbard High School.
He worked at GATX in Masury for 27 years, retiring in 1984, and was a member of Corner House Christian Church, where he was a former trustee.
Raymond was a veteran of the United States Air Force serving during the Korean War from 1949-1953 as a staff sergeant in Erding, Germany, and was a member of Wheatland American Legion.
He was very caring and loved spending time with his family. He enjoyed helping his neighbors, was a great story teller and never knew a strang-er.
He will be sadly missed by his family: his wife the former Lorraine C. Chamberlin, whom he married April 15, 1955; and his four daughters, Jennifer (Craig) Kelsey of Hermitage, Darlene (Paul) Joseph of Flagstaff, Ariz., Ellen (Gary) Cimo of Sharon, and Tracy (Mark) Colella of West Middlesex; and eight grandchildren, Lindsey (Dan) Hilton, John Falconi Jr., James Kaikis, Christopher Kaikis, Victoria (Kevin) Shaughnessy, Gino Colella, Angela (Ante) Mesin, Mark A. Colella, two great-granddaughters, Rylie and Nadia; several nieces and nephews; and his cat, Tiger.
Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his sisters Virginia Seelye and Margaret Adkins, and his brothers Glenn F. Roskie and John G. Roskie.
Specials thanks to all those who cared for him during his last month.
