He was called "Uncle Mimi" by all his nieces and nephews who loved his laugh and his great stories.
After a long battle with Dementia, Uncle Mimi finally passed away exactly two months after his beloved brother, Ciro Antonucci (my pappap) passed away suddenly after a heart attack and stroke.
He was always with his brother everyday since they were young boys and as they grew up and became older in the United States. They were only apart two months and are now together forever.
