WEST PITTSTON, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A restaurant owner in Luzerne County was being remembered Wednesday night as a local hero.
Joe Agolino was the owner of Agolino’s Restaurant in West Pittston. He died on Monday at the age of 75. Wednesday night, more than 50 people attended a candlelight vigil to remember Agolino.
