My Grandfather was the sweetest man you could ever hope to meet. He loved joking around with his grandchildren and loved to socialize.
He was very active in his church, St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in East Haven. He attended mass whenever he could.
He was born to Italian immigrants, Pasquale and Maria DeFelice DelVecchio in New Haven. He was one of 8 brothers and sisters.
He served in the army in WWII and was very proud of his service. In 1948 he married my grandmother, Catherine Capone. They had 2 children, my mother Mary Ann and my uncle Ernest Jr.
He worked for many years as an upholsterer and when he retired he worked for the East Haven school system as a custodian. He could never stay retired, he loved being around people and making people happy.
He was always smiling and rarely ever got mad. He was a wonderful man and he is greatly missed.
