Pellicciotti, Quirino

(Uncle Corey)

Binghamton: Quirino (Uncle Corey) Pellicciotti passed away on February 19, 2012 two days after his 93rd birthday. A gentle, kind, warm-hearted, and spiritual man, he was the uncle every family wishes they had. Corey was predeceased by his parents, Albert and Mary Pellicciotti; stepmother, Carmella; brother, Edward A. Pellicciotti; sister-in-law, Marie DiAngelo Pellicciotti; sister, Eleanor Lobevero; and brothers-in-law, Richard Lobevero and Ralph DiAngelo. He is survived by his sisters, Avalina DiAngelo and Yolanda Pellicciotti; nephews, Albert and Carol Pellicciotti, Edward L. Pellicciotti, Robert Pellicciotti and Dolores Driscoll Pellicciotti, and Richard and Mary Lobevero; and niece, Angela & Nick Wowk; great nephews, Michael and Nancy Pellicciotti, Mark Pellicciotti & Kris Tenebruso, David and Cathy Pellicciotti Nicholas and Michelle Wowk, and Michael Wowk; great nieces, Maria Pellicciotti Papa & Mark, Andrea Pellicciotti and Stephen Askew, and Leann & Michael Turna; niece-in-law, Susan Hendery; several great great nieces and nephews and special great great niece, Madi Papa. Although Corey worked as a tailor in his father's tailor shop, his primary employment was with Ansco from which he retired after over 30 years on the swing shift. The family's handyman and "go-to-guy" for anything, he was always available to anyone for anything. For several years, he was the primary caregiver for his sister-in-law, Marie Pellicciotti. Uncle Corey, a truly selfless man, was deeply appreciated and beloved by his family. A member of what Tom Brokaw described as the Greatest Generation, Corey was called to duty by the U.S. Army in 1942. He was sent to North Africa with the 776th Tank Destroyer Battalion in 1943 as a gun commander with the rank of sergeant. His unit took part in most of the important battles of the Tunisian campaign in Africa; in Italy they participated in the battle at Monte Cassino and the fall of Rome. In France, they saw action at German forts on the Maginot Line and in several French towns. In Germany his company was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation with One Oak-Leaf Cluster for their part in the battle to breach the Siegfried Line, Germany's last line of defense. They made their final drive through Germany which ended in Austria in May 1945. In all, the 776th TDB engaged in combat for 550 days during the two years and eight months they were overseas. Besides the Presidential Unit Citation, Corey also received the Bronze Star, Purple Heart and three campaign medals. Family and friends are invited to attend a Funeral Mass on Thursday, February 23, 2012, at 9:30 a.m. in St. Mary of the Assumption Church. Burial will follow in Calvary Cemetery. At the family's request, there will be no calling hours. Please consider donations in Corey's memory to The Danielle House, 160 Riverside Drive, Binghamton, NY 13905. Arrangements are by the James V. DeMarco & Son Funeral Home, 737 Chenango Street, Port Dickinson, NY.
