Dario Angelo Pieraccini

November 14, 1927 - August 8, 2018

It is with great sadness that the family of Dario Angelo Pieraccini announces his passing, on Wednesday, August 8, 2018, at his home. He was 90 years old.
He was predeceased by his beloved wife Loretta, sons Rudy and Richard, and sister Fosca. Surviving are two grandchildren: Sean Pieraccini, of San Jose, and Sarah Chavez, of Baltimore; three great-grandchildren; and many close friends and relatives.
Mr. Pieraccini was born in San Francisco to the late Rocco and Clelia Pieraccini, both natives of Italy, who immigrated to the United States in the 1920s. He attended Balboa High School and was a U.S. Army veteran. He has resided in his home in Millbrae, CA, for 60 years. He enjoyed gardening and woodworking. He proudly grew tomatoes, zucchinis, herbs, fruit trees, and a variety of flowers in his home garden. Perhaps his most prized pastime, however, was collecting clocks. His extensive collection grew to over 50 clocks and made noon a very musical hour in his home. In his younger years he built a number of grandfather clocks that he gave to friends and family as gifts. He will be dearly missed by all those who knew him.
A vigil will take place on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 at 7:00 pm, at the Chapel of the Highlands in Millbrae, CA. Mass to follow on Thursday, August 16, 2018 at 11:00 am, at St. Dunstan's Catholic Church in Millbrae, CA. Burial will take place at a later date at the Golden Gate National Cemetery, where he will be buried alongside his wife.
