Ernest J. Petrucelli Obituary
Petrucelli, Ernest J.
Ernest J. Petrucelli peacefully passed away on May 6th, 2016 while at Saint John Paul II Rehabilitation Center in Danbury, CT. Ernest was the third son of Lucille (Monaco) and O. Ernest Petrucelli. He was the beloved husband of Virginia (Troetti) Petrucelli, devoted father of Laura Petrucelli and Michele Petrucelli (Brett Duncan), and loving grandfather of Jacqueline, Jay, Jillian Bartimoccia and Grace and Nicholas Duncan.
Ernest was born in The Bronx, NY. He was a longtime resident of Danbury. He graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School, Manhattan College, and received his MBA from New York University. He was a member of the Army National Guard during peacetime. For over 40 Years, Ernest was a Full Professor of Business at Saint Francis College, Brooklyn, NY. Additionally, throughout his career he taught as an adjunct professor at Marist College, Saint Peter's College (NJ), Fordham University, and Western CT State University. Ernest's professional career was constantly dotted with numerous awards for his educational prowess – awarded both by institutions of higher learning and global organizations. He was very proud of being the recipient of the coveted "Professor of the Year" award. Not only was Ernest successful in the field of academia, he was also able to execute his very teachings proving his strong and prosperous business acumen in both the New York and Danbury area.
Ernest was the beloved patriarch of the Petrucelli Family. He was an intelligent, caring, devoted, family man. There was nothing he could not or would not do for his family or friends. He was multi-talented in both his academic and non-academic life. As a student of life, he was constantly learning and sharing his knowledge. His passions included classic cars, good food, travel, NY Mets baseball, advertising/marketing (his area of expertise), and of course, his family.
Respecting Ernest's wishes, a celebration of his life will take place at a later date. There are no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, Ernest requests that donations be made in his honor to either Tails of Courage, 39 Smith Street, Danbury, CT 06810 or to the Ernest Petrucelli Scholarship fund, St. Francis College, Brooklyn, NY.
