Tribute & Message From The Family

SIMONE, Mario. May 31, 2019. Beloved husband of the late Maria. Loving father of Rita Finley, Franca (Frank) Gelle, Salvatore (Cynthia) Simone & Denise (Phil) Benedetti. Proud and adored grandfather "Pops" of 10 & great grandfather of 14. He was predeceased by his siblings, Gaetano (Jane) & Anna (Paolo) DiPirro.
Born in Pacentro, Italy February 9, 1928, he married the love of his life, Maria, in 1947 and set out for a new life in America for him and his family in the early 1950s. After several years, he became a successful contractor and entrepreneur and established a growing construction business that is still flourishing today. Mario kept his Italian heritage alive by continuing his wine and sausage making, prosciutto curing, and garden tending in his home which established a rich cultural experience for his whole family. With many gatherings, his house was never empty and his door was always open. Mario's love for his friends and family led to several traveling experiences across the globe. His legacy will live on through his family for generations to come.
