The couple was married for 22 years at the time of his death. Born in Scheggia, Provincia di Perugia, Italy, she emigrated to the United States in 1963.

The family would also like to extend special thanks to Cheryl Scalzo and the staff, nurses, and aides at Highland Manor for the excellent care and compassion shown to Lucia.
