Frederick “Dale” Aimino, 85, of Punxsutawney, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on
Tuesday, May 9, 2023 at the Punxsutawney Area Hospital.
He was born January 20, 1938 to Dominick and Helen (Bish) Aimino in Gray, Somerset County,
Dale had a strong faith that he shared with anyone that would listen. He was also sure to tell
everyone to: “Keep the faith” and “Keep looking up”. After joining the Marine Corps, he participated
in the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon, which is a 24 man rifle platoon that performs a unique
precision drill exhibition. Dale also was part of the Marine Corps wrestling team that earned him the
opportunity to try out for the US Olympic Wrestling Team. After his honorable discharge from the
Marines, he worked for Youngstown Sheet and Tube. He then started selling produce from a small
stand. Shortly after, he started Aimino’s Market in 1963. After Aimino’s Market closed in 1987,
Dale began selling produce at local auctions. He also started transporting the Amish. Not just
locally, but he traveled to Canada, Mexico and all over the US. This was something that he and
his wife greatly enjoyed.
