I had the pleasure of working with Del at WTAE in the early 70s when had his radio show. Always professional and a gentleman.

My Italian grandma and I spent many hours watching Del Taylor on Dialing for Dollars (when I was young). She was a big fan. And those memories are still beautiful ones. Thanks to Mr. Del Vecchio for being such a wonderful TV personality.
So sorry to learn this evening of your loss. This message is from Roz O'Hearn of Shaker Heights, Ohio--niece of Uncle Settemio and Aunt Mary. Bud sounds as sweet as Uncle "Steam" was!
I grew up with Del with the "Dialing for Dollars" show. My condolences to his Family.May he Rest in Peace.
Todd, so sorry for your loss. Your dad did live a good life! I will let my mom know. She always loved him on t.v. and his wonderful voice. I think my mom remembers you as well. Take care. -Kim Hudson

One of the nicest people I have ever known. I was an engineer at WTAE Channel 4 in 1979 and '80 and talked to Del many times. He was always very approachable and friendly. We'd be chatting outside the announcer's booth when he would dash inside for 10 seconds, make the announcement, then slip back out and never miss a beat in the conversation. What a marvelous personality!
I grew up on Princeton Drive where he lived for a while. When he hosted Bandstand my sister went down one Sat and were on the show. And as I recall we were interviewed by him. Good memories of a good man. May he rest in peace. He is probably in the section of heaven with the rest of the WWII vets reliving their adventures. Reading his obit was the first I learned that he was in the ETO. Typical of his generation. They went to war, did what they had to do, and came home to raise a family and get on with life. But they did not talk about the war.
Todd, My thoughts and Prayers are with You and Your family. It was great that You got to spend the last Few Months with Your Dad.
Wow what a man!
My heart goes out to you Tracey. You are in my prayers
Thoughts and prayers for you Tracy.
