Family so sorry for your loss. Your father was a most respected doctor all the years I worked at CGOH. A kind and caring Christian to be proud to call on when in need. You all have our prayers in these difficult days ahead.

Dear Joann and family, I was sooo sorry to hear of Dr. Deleo’s passing. He is one of the kindest doctors I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with at the hospital. (Osteopathic). I worked in medical records for 23 years and have only seen his temper one time and it wasn’t directed at me thank goodness. (Lol) I had the utmost respect and love for him. He would always be sure to stop by my desk while making his rounds to say hi and thank you for helping him with his records. A close friend of mine was a patient of his and he always asked how I was doing since I no longer worked at the hospital. He made me feel loved and needed. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful man with me. I was devastated to hear of his passing and will always remember this kind, loving, sharp dressed man! May you find comfort in knowing he earned his wings and is flying high with the Lord. God Bless you all. RIP my friend! If I can be of help in any way please let me know.

We will all miss you , Doc . There were so many times that you helped us - - after hours - anytime . A real doctor you were, always looking at the whole person , like an osteopath should. You had humility . I asked you once about homeopathy, and you said "I don't know. " You didn't put it down . You said , " I don't know . " I will never forget that....
We have grateful memories about you , Doctor Frank A. DeLeo , DO . We hope that the next time the dictionary is published , that a picture of you is shown next to the word 'doctor' because you are the definition of what a doctor is.
When you encounter Michelle is your new environs , tell her how much we miss her and love her. She loved you as we did too.
What a man ! What a Doctor !

Dear Doctor DeLeo,
You are part of our hearts.
There are not enough words to even attempt to explain what you meant to our family - not only myself, my brother and especially our dear father, Tony Wolfe! At one point you even treated, our mother, aunts and uncles.
Thank you is not enough, you were so much more than our medical doctor, such a brilliant man, brilliant mind, with an incredible kind heart of gold, empathy, always had positive, gentle words of guidance & encouragement and also being the only doctor who always took calls and would say “come right out” regardless of how packed your waiting room was!
Dressed so impeccably,
with your beautiful white monogrammed cuff dress shirts you received your daughter! And how you loved talking about your granddaughter!
You helped our father through so many illnesses, being one of your first patients, you treated him as a brother and he (we) loved you dearly. No matter what or how bad our diagnoses, Dr. DeLeo, you were on top of it and yes, you would out diagnose the White Coats from other facilities and make things always better. I could go on and on. You saved me a few times with serious diagnosis and knew exactly what was going on and where I needed to go - our father’s first call to give an update regarding my prognosis was always to you!
How blessed and honored we were to have you as our medical doctor. No one will ever fill your shoes. I can actually hear the laughter of my father and you reminiscing about your youth growing up together in Lebanon, Pa.
We thank you Dr. DeLeo from the bottom of our hearts for your care and we were blessed to have you in our lives.
I know our father was one of the first in line to greet you at the pearly gates in heaven! ♥️
May God grant Mrs. DeLeo, Dr. JoAnna, Dr. Andrea and Bianca with strength and also the Staff at Dr. DeLeo’s., too!
You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
With Deepest Heartfelt Sympathy,
The Family of Tony Wolfe, Sr.,
