As the child of Italian immigrants, a proud U.S. Army veteran and a product of the greatest generation, Emil knew the value of hard work. Together with his adored wife Antoinette, they built a life of love and a growing family that brought them unending joy and pride. He instilled in his children the principles of love, faith and good character, and always put the needs of his family first. He colored his life in broad strokes and left his mark in the hearts of those he loved.
Emil will be dearly missed as a true patriarch, and while his absence leaves a great void, there is comfort in knowing he is now reunited with the love of his life, Antoinette.
