Falco Bucci peacefully passed away Sunday, December 6, 2020 at the age of 93. Falco was born in Colledimacine in the region of Abruzzo, Italy. He is survived by his loving wife, Rosaria of 57 years, son Ezio, wife Renee, son Sandro, wife Rosamarie. Falco, affectionately known as Nonno was blessed with five grandchildren: Joseph, Nikki, Michael, Christopher and Carina. He is survived also by his brothers Rafaelle Pignetti in Australia and Emidio Pignetti in Italy as well as many loving cousins, nieces and nephews.
Falco experienced a variety of opportunities in life having been fortunate to work in Italy, Switzerland and Argentina as a brick layer and stone mason. Falco pridefully became a master of his craft. In 1963 Falco and Rosaria settled in the United States after they were married in Italy. Falco was immensely proud of this country and the opportunities that it afforded him to raise a family, buy a house turning it into a home that was continuously filled with family blessings. He was employed as a construction worker throughout New York and by the US Coast Guard on Governor’s island toward the end of his career. Falco has enjoyed his retirement years helping his children renovate their homes, caring for his grandchildren, creating a garden and enjoying pasta!
