VIto Cicci was a great man who was a joy to be around, always a great time when you are in VIto’s presence. He loved to take on a challenge, make us laugh, had a heart of gold and a beautiful spirit. His courage as a veteran and a man whose love of life and family first are to be honored and admired. VIto always made us welcome in his home treated us like family and we will miss his laughter, conversation, and his presence. We know he his with his wife and family and with God and he is at rest and forever at peace in the glory of heaven. We love You Vitto and will miss you ❤
