It is with sadness in our hearts that we must announce that LIBERANTONIO (Libero) VECCHIARELLII passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017 at the tender age of 88.
He was the beloved husband of the predeceased Maria Assunta Vecchiarelli (1993). Libero was the Loving father of Pietro (Rosa) and Mario (Susan) as well as, the cherished Nonno to Christina, Aurora, Chiara and Elyse.
Libero will be sadly missed by his brother Antonio (predeceased Veneranda) and Brother in law Giuseppe Pallotta (predeceased sister Liviantonia), predeceased by his brother Francesco (Pasqualina), sisters Maria Assunta (Cresenzo), Angelina (Giovanni), and, Pasqualina. He will be fondly remembered by all his extended family and friends.
We will always remember him as a strong independent man whose love for his family knew no bounds. His second passion in life, after is family, was cooking and working and in his garden.
His grandchildren Christina, Aurora & Chiara will always remember making prosciutto and salsiccia with him every January and ov-en-bees for carnavale. But most of all we will remember Nonno’s famous barzelletta…
Io avevo un topolino,
chiotto, gelo e bericcino
scopri un bocconcino di formaggio pecorino
lo naso, lo asaggio
ed in un trappola lo resto.
