Giuseppe "Nonno" Pascucci
Birth: May, 1893
Provincia di Pesaro e Urbino
Marche, Italy
Death: Feb. 1, 1963
Hampden County
Massachusetts, USA

Giuseppe 'Joe' Pascucci, was born in the Adriatic coastal town of Fano, Italy in May of 1893. His father's name was Augusto; his mother's name was Albina. He immigrated to the United States aboard the ship 'America' leaving the port of Genoa, Italy and arriving at Ellis Island, New York on July 29, 1912. He later met and married Fenisia Eusebi, originally from Pesaro, Italy. They moved to Huntington, Massachusetts where their son, Augusto 'Gus' was born. They subsequently moved to Springfield, Massachusetts where their two daughters, Mary and Dorina 'Doris' were born. Both Fenisia and Giuseppe wanted to become Americans and among other things insisted that their children speak to them in English until they became proficient, and ultimately realized their goal of becoming naturalized American citizens. Nonno (which means grandfather in Italian) worked at Monsanto Chemical Company in the Indian Orchard section of Springfield in the days before worker protection was popular and encouraged. Breathing in all those chemical vapors caused him to develop asthma with which he struggled up until his death. During the Great Depression he hunted game to supplement the food purchased at local markets. He regularly brought home rabbits, squirrels, doves, and starlings among other wild game and could prepare and cook them to delicious perfection. He was 69 years old when he died, predeceasing his wife who passed away in 1991. One of his grandchildren, Joseph L. Pascucci, is also buried in St. Michael's. At the time of his passing, he left his three loving children, Gus and his wife Winifred 'Winnie', of Perth, Western Australia, Mary and her husband Tony Adamski, and Doris and her husband Frank Conti, and grandchildren, Cheryl (Pascucci) Milici, of Australia, Janice 'Jan' (Conti) Hugger, Frank Conti, David Conti, Joseph Conti, Karen (Adamski) Wroblewski and Frank Adamski. He also predeceased his many, great grandchildren.
