YOUNGSTOWN – Family and friends are invited to celebrate the lives of John Kenneth Lallo Sr. and Diana Christine Ceo Lallo beginning with calling hours at St. Anthony’s Church in Youngstown. John and Diana passed away Sunday, Aug. 18.

John was born Sept. 18, 1960, in Youngstown, the eldest child of John Nicholas and Betty Jane Lallo.

Diana was born Oct. 31, 1959, also in Youngstown, the middle child of Donald Anthony and Dolores Joann Ceo.

John and Diana will be forever remembered by their children, Melissa (Brian), Erica (Brian), John Jr. (Mackenzie), and Samantha; their grandchildren, Estella Marie and Robert Price; and their loving siblings, Michael Lallo, Lisa Cantillo (Julio), Donald Ceo Jr., and Denise Mariani (Tom). They will forever remain cherished in the hearts of countless family members and friends.

John and Diana were high school sweethearts, graduating from Kennedy High School in 1978 and 1977. The two married after high school and John started working for the family business, McRoyal Industries Inc. in Youngstown while Diana pursued her Master of Education at Youngstown State University and afterwards, she taught Science in the Liberty School District.

John’s passion was aviation, cooking, and outdoors activities and Diana enjoyed crafting, baking, and sewing, and was a lifelong Cleveland Browns fan. But together, they were most passionate about their family, especially spending time with their children and grandchildren.

Visitation will take place at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, 1155 Turin St., Youngstown, OH 44510, on Saturday, Aug. 24, from 8 to 11 a.m. followed by a funeral Mass.

At the request of the family, donations may be made to St. Anthony’s Catholic Church.

Arrangements are being handled by the Schiavone Funeral Home.

“Dear Lallo family, I am writing to send our deepest sympathy to all of you. We were shocked at hearing the tragic news of your parents death. Your father, John, did business with Steve Hill at Ace Lumber and your mother, Diana was our daughter, Carla Hill's, teacher at Liberty. We always talked at the school functions! Our oldest daughter, Christy Hill is still friends with Melissa. Our prayers are with you at this time. Pat and Steve Hill”

“Ken Mason and I rented the upstairs shop for many years and became close family friends and business associates. We were very fond of the entire Lallo family who treated us with such kindness through the years. We will miss you both.”
