Camillo “Cam” Cianci II, age 60, of Sharon and formerly of Greenville, passed away peacefully on February 22, 2021 surrounded by his family at Magee Hospital in Pittsburgh.
Cam was born in Greenville on June 14, 1960 to Camel and Betty Cianci. He quickly inherited his love for the people of Greenville and the surrounding area from his father, who was the owner/operator of Cianci’s Barber Shop for many years. Cam was a 1979 graduate of Greenville High School and earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business in 1983 from Thiel College.
He began his career at the Sanray Corporation, where he learned all aspects of the restaurant industry. Cam’s professionalism and ability to learn quickly led to gaining a position within Sanray as General Manager of Perkin’s Restaurant in Greenville. Cam’s work as General Manager required a move to Canton, Ohio, in 1990 where he would then meet his future wife, the former Chris Poling. They were married in 1992 and would have celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary in June of this year.
Cam and Chris moved to Greenville, shortly after marriage and he and his cousin formed a partnership and operated the family business Cianci’s Restaurant, Bar and Motel for 23 years. As a small-town business owner, he felt compelled to support the local communities. He was a very proud father of both of his children, Cam and Courtney. He spent many years supporting his son in wrestling and other sports. Both had a love for the restaurant industry and opened Cucina di Cianci’s in Hermitage in March of 2020. He enjoyed visiting his daughter in Arizona, soaking up the sun, shopping and supporting her as she is pursued further education in the medical field.
Cam was dearly loved by his family and friends. He had friends all over the country and no matter where he traveled, he always knew someone. Perhaps this was because Cam befriended people with ease. His sense of humor and laugh were contagious, and he had a way of making people smile.
Cleveland sports teams had no more dedicated fan than Cam Cianci. He loved the Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Indians, and Cleveland Cavaliers. He loved all sports both as a spectator and participant. Cam enjoyed golfing and in his younger years playing softball.
All who knew Cam, will miss his big smile, laugh, and the joy he brought to this world. Cam is survived by his wife, Christine Cianci, son Cam III and his fiancé Hannah Wonderling (Mason) of Hermitage, and daughter Courtney Cianci of Mesa, Arizona. He is also survived by his sister Cia Cianci, of Charleston, South Carolina. His parents, Camel and Betty Cianci, preceded him in death.

The Cianci and Travaglini family connection is generations deep starting in Roccascalegna, Italy, coming to America and eventually to Greenville, PA together. Our hearts are saddened by the loss of Cam as he embodied the true meaning of loyalty, kindness and compassion. He was a wonderful friend to many and will be deeply missed. Cam was such a bright spot in the day any time we would interact with him. He always had a ready story and smile for us. He was so caring and compassionate to our father and we will always be grateful to him for those acts of kindness. Rest in Peace Cam. Thanks for being our friend.

Our Friendship began at Hempfield Elementary School and continued through the years. Cam always would remind me of our days of our youth when we would have chance encounters.. especially our times of playing ball. We would share our latest experiences about our Families. i will always cherish those moments in time. His infectious Smile and his way of saying things that would make me laugh for long periods time enen if the subject was serious or maybe I should have taken it more seriously.. Enen in this time of Great Sorrow Cam I am Laughing and Crying at the same time.. So my friend I look forward to the next chance encounter in that place where there is No Sunset and No Dawning.
Our families were intertwined since Roccasalegna and through our lives here. Cam, your smile, laugh and connection to people will be a warm memory for so many. Deepest sympathy to the Cianci family. Many prayers for strength and comfort and feeling Cam’s lasting embrace.

My deepest sympathies. I never truly met him, but can share a family memory for you. When we had the memorial for my parents he welcomed everyone who came.from California, Michigan, Maryland or Pennsylvania or any state..The food was delicious. We were there only one weekend but it was after a late Easter so college was nearing the end.memories go back further with the motel itself, as sometimes my parents stayed there when my parents did overnights as a child.I do remember heading into the restaurant part and I believe seeing him behind the bar area smiling.
We are sending our thoughts and prayers to you and your family. From your friends at Gila River Health Care E.D
Chris, Cammy, Courtney and Cia–
Am so so sorry for your loss. I know Cam was giving it all he had there fighting for so long, but I’m so relieved that you were able to be there with him. Sending you my deepest condolences and positive healing energy to comfort you as you continue down this grieving path. There’s no timeline or map for how long things will hurt the worst, but know that so many are here to comfort and support you as best as we can. Love Kimmy
Sending prayers to the Cianci family during this difficult time. I had the pleasure of playing softball with Cam in the late seventies and early eighties, not only was he a good athlete but also a good man. I also enjoyed dining at he and his cousin’s restaurant, they always made me welcome and fed with great cuisine. God Bless and Rest In Peace…
Chris, Cam and Cortney- I knew Can for almost 40 years, first from working with him at Perkins in Meadville. He was such a great guy to work with; so caring for all. He will be greatly missed by any and all whose paths crossed with his. Such a great guy! I will continue to pray for strength and peace for you all during this most difficult time in your lives. May you find peace knowing that he loved you all so so much! RIP my friend, Cam……..
My deepest regret for your loss, Cam was a great friend of mine when he worked for Sodexo at Westminister college. He and I had some good laughs and I always told him I was way behind in my work even though he knew I was caught up with the work. R.I.P.
So deeply sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Cam will be missed.
Wishing your family peace and comfort during this difficult time. We grew up with Cam on the Mercer Road as kids. After moving away, it was always such a joy when we would stop by Cianci’s restaurant to catch up with him during our visits. Always welcomed us with a big smile – he will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Chris, Cam and Courtney you are in my thoughts and prayers! Words can’t begin to explain how broken hearted I’m and wish I could do something for you! Just know you are loved. With sympathy Deanie and Gerry
Please accept my heartfelt condolences and prayers. Cam was a childhood friend who will be sadly missed.
So so sorry for your loss. I went to school with Cam. After graduation, he attended the piano concert I did, done by a friend and classmate. That was the first I’d seen him since high school. I still have the group picture that was taken of the small group of GHS classmates who went to that concert. he was as friendly as he was in school.
My prayers to you. One of the good guys was taken too soon.
Denise and I are so sorry for your loss. Cam was a good person and i wish you and your family the best. Prayers to the Cianci family.
So sorry to hear this news , I think I have seen Cam one time in the last 40 years but I will always remember that young athlete , student and friend and that big smile . Such a great loss but warm memories to all he has left behind , Condolences to all that he has touched .
Words cannot adequately express my feelings for my friend Cam and the sadness I feel for his family and all the lives he touched. I became good friends with Cam our senior year of high school when we played on an intramural basketball team at the Rec Center and later shared memories at pickup softball games and Cavs and Indians games. Cam’s sense of humor and infectious smile always lightened the mood in any gathering. I reconnected recently with Cam at our recent class reunion and throughout the past year after he and Chris opened the restaurant in Hermitage. Cam was always the encourager and I will miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers continue with Chris, Cam, Courtney and the rest of the family.
My deepest sympathy to the entire Cianci family. Having known Cam for 55 years. He was a fine man and a pleasure to be around. He will be sadly missed by all that knew him.We will all meet again someday!
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Jim and Kathy Ferguson

I’m so sorry for your loss of your brother. I sure prayed for a different outcome but God had a different plan. Prayers for you and Cam’s family and friends as you all learn to live without this beloved person in your lives.
So sorry for the loss of your father, husband, brother, and friend.
Cam was definitely one of the friendliest guys I’ve ever met! His smile warmed hearts so easily and naturally! This world won’t be the same without him. I’m sure heaven just welcomed another angel! Rest In Peace dear classmate and friend!
If you want to achieve greatness, kindness and decency are good places to start. That’s Cam. I have no memory of conflict or tension or even a lack of a laugh in his presence. None. RIP my friend
Sending prayers from Charleston, SC to Cia, Christine, Cam, Courtney, and everyone who loved Cam. Praying that God will hold you all in his arms and comfort you as you grieve during this time.

We first met Cam playing softball in the 1980’s. What fun times & lifelong friendships we made including Cam’s dear parents. We always loved talking & reminiscing with Cam at Cianci’s restaurant in Greenville & most recently at his restaurant in Hermitage where we made plans for a Softball Reunion this Summer. Our Prayers are with his family & all who knew him. Heaven gained an Angel. Fly High Cam
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family during this sad and difficult time.
