Suddenly passed away after a short illness in Locri, Calabria, Italy on Wednesday 11th January 2017. Son of Amadeo (dec) and Raffaella (dec) Bucchino, brother of Domenico, Felice (dec), Vittoria and Rita. Husband to Maria-Caterina, father of Nadia and Elena. Father-in-law and grandfather.

Eternal rest grant our brother.
Words cannot express the sadness in my heart. Distance prevented me from being there but you were always in my heart and mind. Condolences to my sister-in-law Maria-Caterina and nieces and my siblings.
To hear your voice, to see you smile, to sit and talk with you awhile, to be together in the same old way would be my only wish today.
Forever in our hearts your loving sister Vittoria, Ottaviano (dec) Melia.
Zio now rest resting in God's care. Your niece Adriana and Alby.
It's said to take the opportunity to see your loved ones. We are so grateful of the time we spent together recently in Italy. We have no words for this immense loss. We share the grief that Zia and cousins are feeling. Loving memories are ours to keep. Your loving niece Claudia, Robert and family.
