Gregory Mantione - Wednesday,8/2/2017

Born in Kingston, Greg was a son of Sheri Bestider and David Pisack, Exeter and Greg Mantione and Michelle Roberts, Pringle. He attended Wyoming Area School District.

Greg "Revo" as he was known to his friends...was a very free spirit who loved to travel, and see different places, and meet new faces.

His love of trains, and the rails lead him and his friends on many adventures, which included Canada, Alaska, and most of the 50 states.

Greg loved music, whether it was black death metal, 80's rock, old school rap or him trying to sing Black Sabbath at 3am with the volume on max.

When he wasn't out seeing the country, blasting music, or getting money together for a Four Loko and some Dank beer, he was sewing his favorite patchwork pants, and vest, and adding more bands, groups and logos to his daily attire.

He loved to talk and make plans to meet up with his friends, no matter how far away they were.

He was adored and loved by his family and friends. His memory will live on in their hearts forever.

In addition to his parents, Greg is also survived by his maternal grandmother. Kathleen Bestider; many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Greg was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, James Bestider, and paternal grandparents, Ross and Mary Jane Mantione, and many many friends.

Relatives and Friends may pay their respects from 5 to 8 pm, Wednesday August 2, 2017. at Baloga Funeral Home, Inc. 1201 Main Street, Pittston (Port Griffith).

So sorry for your loss. Soon the God of Comfort will bring an end to death and wipe away the tears from all faces, for this has been promised at Isaiah 25:8. We can also look forward to the marvelous hope brought out at Acts 24:15. There we see that those we lost in death will be brought back to life here on earth. I do hope you find comfort in this.

Sheri, I have no words that will comfort you, I wish I did. Death is a part of life and it sucks. I just believe, that when it's our time and we get to those Pearly Gates, all who have gone before us will be there to welcome us with opened arms. I love you my friend and will keep you in my prayers.
