John W Vitti
Sep 11, 1947 - Mar 25, 2021John William Vitti, age 73, beloved husband, father, and Papa (originally from Danbury), passed away peacefully on March 25th, 2021 at his home in Cottonwood, AZ. John was born and raised in Stamford, CT enlisted with the US Coast Guard, and worked as a computer engineer with Pitney Bowes for 35 years. John was also a competitive ballroom dancer, starting at age 7, which led him to open Vitti's Dance Studio in 1975 which is still in operation today. John was selected to represent the US 3 times at the World Dance Championship in Europe. He really enjoyed teaching dance to the entire community, holding many dances around the area, competing in regional and national competitions with his students, and was an instructor for the Arts program at Immaculate High School. His passion for dance was evident by all who sought perfection, only to be instructed to "try it again". And while he may have seemed demanding on the dance floor, it was all a "performance" as John put everyone's needs before himself.
John is survived by his wife Andrea Pesso of Cottonwood, AZ, his brother Ron Vitti and wife Diana of Danbury, CT, three sons John, Brian and Michael, along with 6 grandchildren John, Haley, Torre, Trey, Brody and Mickey.
Plans for a celebration of John's life are in process and will be announced soon. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation in his name to the American Cancer Society
