Gilbert Louis Fanciullo died peacefully and with unwavering dignity June 26, surrounded by his adoring children.
He was born Aug. 30, 1928 and has gone to join his loving wife of 70 years Betty, who died exactly one month ago, and his brother Saverio and sister Lillian.
He was a loving, devoted, and strong man who always put his four children’s and six grandchildren’s welfare above his own. He maintained control of his own life and destiny until the end. How one dies is a strong personal legacy and Dad’s death will serve as a model for all who follow him. We miss him and will admire his life and love forever.
In addition to his children and grandchildren he is survived by his brother Bill and countless cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. The family would especially like to thank VNA of central New Jersey. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hospice Development Department, 80 Main St., Suite 210, West Orange, NJ 07052.
