Romeo A. Zuech Obituary
February 28, 1926 - July 20, 2017 Romeo, affectionately known as "Meo" by his family and friends, was born and raised in the Northern Alto Adige town of Brez, Italy. In 1950, after serving in the resistance army for the Allied Forces in WWII, he moved to the United States. For 30 years he worked as a successful Aerospace Engineer for Rocketdyne International, in Canoga Park, California. He created numerous metal alloys that were used in various NASA space projects; he was highly recognized for his contributions in the Apollo projects, responsible for landing the first man on the moon. After retiring from Rocketdyne in 1983, Romeo and his wife Margaret moved to San Luis Obispo and began Piedra Creek Winery. What began as a passion quickly became a business for Romeo and Margaret when they realized how many people adored their wines. Meo spent over 36 years winemaking and growing grapes within the Edna Valley. Meo celebrated 64 years of marriage with his wife Margaret, and 70+ years of taking individual elements to make a greater whole. He is survived by his wife Margaret Zuech, twin daughters Maria Dennison and Sofia de Jony, his grandchildren and great-grandchild. Service for Romeo will be held Friday, July 28th, 11:00 AM at St. Paul the Apostle in Pismo Beach.
