Tullio Marchegiani, 87

August 09, 2014

READSBORO, Vt. — Tullio Marchegiani, 87, of Readsboro died Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014, at Centers for Living and Rehabilitation in Bennington.

Born in Readsboro on Dec. 30, 1926, son of Celso "Tony" and Teresa Colo Marchegiani, he attended local schools.

A Navy veteran of World War II, he enlisted in March 1945. After basic training in New York State, he was stationed on the Marshall Islands in the Pacific and was honorably discharged in July 1946.

Mr. Marchegiani was employed for many years by the former Readsboro Chair Co., Vermont Hardwoods. He also worked several years at Deerfield Specialty Papers in Monroe Bridge, Mass. He retired in 1989 from Codogni & Son Plumbing.

During his retirement, he enjoyed many hours and every deer season at Camp Zinfandel in Readsboro. In later years, he enjoyed company around his dining room table at home, sharing coffee royals with his friends and telling stories.

He loved to hunt, especially for rabbits and birds, and fishing for brook trout. He loved people and everyone he knew was a good friend. He loved music, dancing and going to parties, but most of all, he loved his family.

He leaves his beloved wife of 60 years, the former Esther Scaia; his son, Dale Marchegiani of Readsboro; his daughter Kim McGowen and her husband, Stan, of Maine; his sister, Ada Libardi and her husband, Eugene, of Readsboro; a very special person in his life, his grandson, Bradley of Readsboro; his stepgrandchildren, Arick McGowen and Dr. Afton Thompson; his stepgreat-granddaughter, Evelyn Rose Thompson; and his treasured sisters- and brothers-in-law, and nieces and nephews spanning several generations.

He was predeceased by his sister Dirce Sanderson, late of Chester, Mass.; his two brothers, Joseph and Norman, late of Readsboro; and his daughter-in-law, Vickey Marchegiani.

FUNERAL NOTICE — A Funeral Mass for Mr. Marchegiani will be celebrated Thursday, Aug. 14, at 11 at St. Joachim's Church in Readsboro. Burial will follow in Village Cemetery.

At his request, there will be no calling hours. It was his wish that, following the funeral, his family and friends gather at the Readsboro American Legion to celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Vickey Marchegiani Scholarship Fund in care of Flynn & Dagnoli-Montagna Home for Funerals, Central Chapels, 74 Marshall St., North Adams, MA 01247.
