Pa (as he was called by many), came to these shores in 1953 in search of a better life for his wife and children. He worked for Endicott-Johnson as a mason and for several small construction companies. In 1969, Giuseppe and his son Antonio founded G. DeVincentis & Son Construction Company. Together with hard work his company continues to run successfully today. Giuseppe was loved by all and will be remembered for his strength and courage. He had a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh. Throughout all his successes, he maintained his humility. Giuseppe loved his garden and it was the envy of the neighborhood. Recently, his garden was featured in Martha Stewart Living Magazine. Giuseppe was a member of St. Mary of the Assumption Church for over 60 years. He also was a member of the Abruzzese Social Club and club sponsor for the Women’s Abruzzese Club. Pa’s greatest love was his family. He could be found walking around his grandchildren’s’ homes stating “Look at what Giuseppe accomplished”. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends. To know him was to love him. The family would like to express their thanks to Dr. Rosa Solis, Dr. Crispelle and all the nurses and staff of the UHS Palliative team, North Wing Four, ICU and CCU. A special thanks to Dr. Julia Miller for her special care and compassion.
