The Passing of William “Bill” Joseph Genetti

I was recently made aware that another Genetti cousin passed away in 2020. William “Bill” J. Genetti (1956-2020) had his roots in the Wyoming branch of our family. He was the son of Joseph Henry Genetti (1925-2006) and Marie Fernandez (1925-2008), the grandson of Ermenegildo Genetti (1893-1967) and Dola Belle Whitman (1900-1985), and the great-grandson of Angelo Genetti (1959-1946) and Terresa A. Marchetti (1858-1902) – both of Castelfondo, Trentino, Austria (Italy).

Although I never met William Genetti, his brother Robert Genetti attended two Genetti Family Reunions in Pennsylvania, where I had the pleasure to speak with him. The Wyoming Genetti family was related to all branches of our family who settled in the United States: Pennsylvania branch, Illinois branch and Michigan branch, as well as to several ancestors who immigrated to Argentina.

We extend our thoughts and sympathies to William Genetti’s family.

A memorial page for Bill has been created in the Tributes section of the Genetti website. Click here to read Bill’s memorial. If you would like to leave a memory of Bill Genetti, please do so in the comments section at the end of his memorial page.
