Fred Felisimo, of Boca Raton, joined our Almighty Father in Heaven on January 3, 2014, after a long & healthy life of 97 years. Born in Yonkers, NY, to Maria (Spaziani) and Thomas Felicissimo, he lived most of his life in Danbury, Ct., before moving to Florida with his wife, Olga (Scalzo), of Danbury, and his daughters. Mr. Felisimo served his country proudly in the U.S. Navy during WWII, and went on to enjoy a fulfilling & lifelong career in the construction industry. He was also an accomplished musician, performing with orchestras across the country. A shining example of good health, Mr. Felisimo enjoyed the art of home remodeling right up until the age of 95, claiming that the secret to his longevity was "hard work and a glass of red wine every day".

He leaves behind two daughters, Karen Felisimo and Gail Medina, and a step-daughter, Deborah Reeve, all of Boca Raton, along with numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces/nephews, grand nieces/grand nephews, and great grand nieces and great grand nephews.
