Frank K. Ciero, 78, of Scranton, passed away on July 29, 2022 at Allied Services Hospice after an illness. His wife of 57 years is the former Norma Lea Dadey.
Born in Scranton, he was the son of the late Frank and Dorothy Aten Ciero. He was a graduate of Scranton Technical High School, class of 1962. After graduation he served with the United States Army Reserves. Frank was employed by several businesses where he gained knowledge in various trades.
