Angelo Felix Scopel Obituary

Angelo Felix Scopel, 92, beloved husband, father, and grandfather, passed away on November 1, 2023, in Ford City, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories.  Born on September 6, 1931, in Cadogan, he was the son of Angelo and Miranda Scopel.

He is preceded in death by his parents and brothers, Emilio, Ennio, Walter, and son-in-law, Brad Bauer.  Angelo is survived by his wife Jo Ann Martinez Scopel, and six children: Lisa Bauer, Michael Scopel, Annette Johnston (Bobby), Babette Ronk (Rick), Darren Scopel (Melinda), and Michelle Dobransky (Stephen).  Angelo’s legacy continues through his fourteen grandchildren, and fifteen great-grandchildren.  

Upon graduating from Ford City High School in 1949, Angelo proudly served his country in the Navy during the Korean War. After finishing his service, he worked diligently at Eljer Plumbingware for the rest of his career, and retired in 1994.  

Angelo was very proud of his Italian heritage and loved learning more about the area that his family was from, Seren del Grappa.  One of his favorite pastimes was golfing.  He was a long time member of the Lenape Golf Course where he worked as a Ranger and was well known for his very low handicap.  He enjoyed riding his bike around town, swimming, watching birds with his wife and solving the NY Times crossword puzzle and Sudukos.  Angelo had a wry sense of humor, was curious-minded and loved learning about science and how the world works.  He was also a clever problem solver who liked to tinker around the house and was very meticulous when it came to home improvement projects…especially ceilings!

Socially, he was a member of the Eagles and Latin American Club. He also enjoyed spending time with good friends and having weekly breakfasts at Dizzy Lizzies.  Angelo loved spending time with his children and grandchildren, watching them play sports, hearing about their lives and telling them stories about growing up in Cadogan.  Angelo’s presence in the lives of his family and friends will be deeply missed, but his memory, the love he shared, will be in their hearts forever.
