Carmen Vincent Nardone
September 30, 2021
Carmen Vincent Nardone, 65, formerly from South Wilkes-Barre, entered eternal peace on September 30, 2021. Born on January 9, 1956, he was the son of the late Thomas and Rachel (Ciavarella) Nardone.
He is a member of Our Lady of Hope Parish Church, where he serviced as an eucharistic minister, usher, and volunteer, assisting with many fundraising activities at the church. Carmen was a 1973 graduate of E.L. Meyers High School. In 1979, he received a bachelor of science degree in business from Wilkes University.
Carmen spent many years working in his family’s business, Mama Nardone’s Pizza, until it closed in 1997. His true passion was radio broadcasting. Carmen got his first chance on AM 730 WNAK Nanticoke. He fulfilled a longtime dream when he became the owner of WMXH 750AM Taylor. He touched the lives of many faithful listeners.
Carmen was a dear and faithful son; he was a caregiver for both of his parents prior to their passing in 2016. He was a warm, welcoming, and kind person with a positive outlook on life. He could bring a smile to your face with little effort, and he had a healthy sense of humor and a personality to match. Carmen’s devotional faith in God and love for his family could never be contested or disputed. He was a loyal and dedicated friend that any would be blessed to have in their lives.
Carmen is survived by four sisters and their spouses: Marie Warren (Don) of Kingston; Gloria Boots (Larry) of Newark, DE; Filomena Nelson (David) of West Chester, OH; Bernadette Frail (Jeff) of Wilkes-Barre. In addition, he is survived by nieces and nephews, Joey Arowcavage; Julie (Arowcavage) Texeira and Matthew; Lauren Jump (Boots) and Nathan; Michelle Boots; Stephanie, John, and Gregory Nelson; Nicole Frail and Matthew Magda; Kerri (Frail) Odell and Kevin; and Jeffery Frail and Tess (Sauer); as well as great nephews Cooper and Travis Frail-Magda; Parker Jump; and great niece Santina Texeira. Carmen is also survived by his longtime friend, David Seliga, as well as aunts, uncles, and many cousins.
Carmen’s family is grateful for the kind and loving care showed to him by the nurses and staff at Kingston Healthcare Center.
