To The Bagnoli Family:
I was just speaking to my CT. cousin who just informed me of Fazio's passing away. I'd like to express my heartfelt condolences. I recall what an achiever, athlete and outstanding student he was. I see he accomplished a lot and contributed much to mankind. Thanks to God for giving all of you the opportunity to share life with this man. God Bless Mike
Mary Ellen and I were shocked and saddened to hear of Faz's passing. Although we had lost touch in the recent years, I always considered him a good friend and a big part of my life growing up in East Haven. We shared many a good day and good nights as we grew from kids to men over the years. I have so many fond memories of Faz: many surrounding middle school and high school, hanging out at the beach, college break adventures, and family events.
I remember one night in 1973 during Christmas break when we partied and bar hopped in New Haven and ended the night with empty pockets, going back to Faz's house for a late night/early morning breakfast. We walked up the driveway just as Pop Bagnoli, carrying his lunch box and wearing his plaid ear-flapped hat, was exiting. He was shaking his head and muttering under his breath. “You know whata tima this is?" his father asked. Faz hesitated for a minute and smiled saying “yeah, pop, it's time for YOU to go to work!” We all laughed. Faz had a great sense of humor. He was a family man and the most decent guy you could ever hope to meet. He will be sorely missed.
My condolences go out to the entire Bagnoli Family.
Sad to see another 1969 football team mate and captain pass away too young. You had a lot of Heart Faz, see you on the other side.
Sleep well old friend.
