Ismael Orlando "Chief" Gaitan, 68, of Bushkill, passed away, Saturday, July 19, 2014 while vacationing in Italy with his wife, Onorina Nora Gaitan.

Ismael was born March 3, 1946, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to Eduardo and Felicia Gaitan. On Dec. 16, 1973, he married his best friend, Onorina Nora Zuena of Itri, Italy, in a ceremony in Orange, New Jersey.

Ismael was employed at Pocono Palace Resort for the last 24 years. He enjoyed work, but was happily getting ready to retire this coming birthday so that he could spend more time at home surrounded by his wife, family and all his grandchildren. He always enjoyed reading and watching sports, especially the Argentina soccer team. However, what he adored most was spending as much time with his wife, and visiting his children and grandchildren. His grandchildren lit up his face whenever he got to spend time with them.

Ismael is survived by his wife of almost 40 years, Onorina Nora, and his children: his daughters, Michele Torres of Virginia Beach, Virginia, Sandra Keiper and her husband Steven, of Pittsburgh, and Veronica and her husband, Michael Bouldin, of Simpsonville, South Carolina; a son, Eduardo Gaitan of Flanders, New Jersey; 14 grandchildren; his niece Stella Delmenico of Astoria, Queens, and her two sons; and several nieces, nephews and extended family.

Arrangements under the direction of Lanterman & Allen Funeral Home, East Stroudsburg, PA.
