The Passing of Another Cousin

We have sad news to report. One of our Genetti cousins, Edward F. Genetti of Pennsylvania, passed away on November 12th. Born in 1936, Edward was the son of Stanley Genetti (1899-1988) and Eleanor Rauzi (1909-2005), and the grandson of Damiano Genetti (1857-1944) and Oliva Zambotti (1861-1938). He is the husband of Edwina (Roland) and was preceded in death by his first wife Rosemary (Gaudiano). We send our sympathies and condolences to Edward’s family.

    So sorry to hear about Eddie’s passing. Spent quite a bit of time with him and Richard in our youth. His first wife Rosemary was a very good friend of mine. My condolences to his family.

    To Tim , Allen and the rest . My condolences.
    Ed Genetti , A WW11 history buff , and The only person I Know
    Who owned a Ferrari Dino. He was a man of his word. A class act.
    Although my father never had the privalige of meeting Ed , he did meet the grandfather at Valley
    Country Club. An affable person sat down and asked my father if he was in the grocery business as well.
    My dad Said , No I’m in the doctor business. Long story short , Just like his father, Ed is gone but not forgotten.

      Hi Eric,
      Thank you for leaving a memory of Ed. I have a feeling the person your dad met at the Valley Country Club was Ed’s father, Stanley Genetti. Stanley was my grandfather’s brother (all four of the Genetti brothers started out in the grocery business). Ed’s grandfather (and my great-grandfather) was Damiano Genetti, who founded the original grocery business in Hazleton. But in 1922 Damiano sold the business to his sons and moved back to the Tyrol. He came back for visits during the next 15 years until war broke out in Europe. Damiano died in 1944 in his beloved village of Castelfondo, without returned to the states.

        You are correct. I should have mentioned that. Allen and I used the same adoption agency . My wife traveled with Allen to China.
