Ralph B. Nozzi, 74, of Dunmore, died Saturday in Regional Hospital of Scranton after a courageous battle with brain cancer. He and his wife, the former Madeline Durdan, had celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary on April 16.

He enjoyed golfing and spending time with his grandaughters and grandpuppy, Lola.

His family would like to thank the staff on the seventh floor at Regional Hospital of Scranton, as well as Dr. Martin Hyzinski, Dr. Akash Agarwal and Dr. Anees Fogley for all the care and compassion provided to Ralph.

Ben and I go back many years.
I will miss running into Ben at Price Chopper, CVS, Farmers' Market, and at church plus many other places he greeted me and always made me smile.

Mike and Jan,
I just want to express my deepest sympathy on the recent passing of your father. I remember him when you were playing basketball at the High school as one of the most respectful parents that I had to deal with. Unfortunately I will be out of town and will not be able to attend the viewing but I will continue to keep both you and your family in my prayers.

Sincerely,
Jack Kelly
