Vincenzo Sacco, passed away peacefully at his home in the early hours of November 3, 2019. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend. He is now reunited with the love of his life for all eternity in the open arms of the Lord. Vincenzo was born on March 23, 1928, in Limatola, Benevento, Italy. He was one of six children. Vincenzo's family were vegetable farmers, which he continued to do until he immigrated to the United States with his family on October 8th, 1971. He married the love of his life, Edda (Marotta) Sacco, on February 15th, 1953 and were married for fifty-nine years, until her death in 2012. He missed her very much and patiently waited for The Lord to call him home to be with her again. Vincenzo was a patient and practical man who enjoyed the simple things in life. He worked as a construction worker from 1971-1975 and then worked for the Golub Inc. from 1975 until his retirement in 1993. One of his favorite pastimes was playing cards with his friends and family. He was also an avid gardener. His garden was something truly spectacular thanks to his upbringing in Italy. In addition, every year, he made wine at home in his basement with the help of his family.
Along with his wife, he was predeceased by an infant daughter, Giuseppina Sacco, his mother and father, Giuseppina (Aragosa) and Giuseppe Sacco, brothers, Carmine and Andre Sacco, and sister Carmela Sacco.
Vincenzo is survived by his brother, Antonio Sacco, sister, Maria (Sacco) Di Fonzo, son, Giuseppe Sacco and wife Maria, daughter, Addolorata (Sacco) Pauze' and husband Douglas, granddaughters, Veronica Cieszynski, and husband Shane, Lia Despres and husband Edward, Sara Evers, and husband Joseph, Edda Roemelt and husband Michael, Edda Sacco, Elisa Sacco, and Sean Bagnardi, Emilia Sacco, and Emma Sacco.
