Dear Dianna-

So sorry for your loss. I have many fun memories of your father over the years. I’m glad I had the chance to talk with him in December. May your memories comfort you.

Dear Family,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. As long as I can remember, there was always quiet, sweet “Uncle Johnny”. I will never forget as a kid that I rode to the Pittsburg Airport with Uncle Tullio to take John to catch a plane to go back and visit Fontecchio. He was the most excited and talkative I can remember him being except many years later when Dianna was born. He must have been all of 24 years old then!! Know that he left fond memories in the hearts of many people. Love to all. Chere

Sorry to hear about Mr. Ciancone. I never met him but my Dad, Kenneth Wright, worked with him at Ormet until my dad had to retire in 1989. He spoke of him often over the years, Dad said he was a good friend at the mill.
