John T. DeLucco Sr. Obituary

John T. DeLucco, Sr., 83, of Manchester, beloved husband of Barbara J. (Thomas) DeLucco and the late Marie A. (Gialluca) DeLucco, passed away peacefully at his home on Thursday (August 14, 2014). Born on Front St. in Hartford on July 15, 1931, John was the son of the late Matthew F. DeLucco, Sr. and Mary J. (Turek) DeLucco, and like a second son to Angeline and Arthur Buttero. He was a 1949 graduate of Weaver High in Hartford and was a member of St. Anthony parish, where he proudly pitched for their CYO baseball team, who were champs in 1947 and 1948. He married his beloved Marie in 1950 and they spent 52 wonderful years together before her passing in 2003. He was blessed to find love again and married his second wonderful wife, Barbara, in 2007. John was a proud crane operator, and a member of #478 Operating Engineers Union for 44 years, where he served as Foreman and Union Steward, and was also a member of the Teamsters #559. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and belonged to UNICO, the American Legion, and the CYO. He resided in Manchester since 1959, where he was a faithful communicant of St. Bridget's Church, serving as a lector, usher, collector and church council member. He coached little league for many years and next to his family, his greatest love was the New York Yankees. John was immensely proud of his Italian heritage. He spent many happy summers with his family in Westerly, RI, Myrtle Beach, SC. He also loved to sing, but nothing meant more to him than his family. In addition to his loving wife Barbara, John will be dearly missed by his five children, Doreen G. Midford and her husband Mark of Manchester, Angela M. Carrier and her husband Thomas of Bolton, John T. DeLucco, Jr. and his wife Corinne of Manchester, and twins, Tina DeLucco-Maurus and her husband Jason of Manchester and Tami M.
