Francesco “Gino” Iuculano, 83, of 833 Newland Ave., died Monday August 1, 2022, in UPMC Hamot, Erie, Pa.
A native of Tortorici, Sicily, he was born Sept. 17, 1938, a son of the late Sebastiano and Carmela Trusso Iuculano.
Gino came to America with his family in 1958 and returned to Italy to marry the love of his life, Erminia Trusso July 5, 1961.
Prior to his retirement, he was employed by MRC Bearings for 36 years as an inspector. He earlier had worked at Chase Interiors.
He was a communicant of St. James Catholic Church and a member of the Marco Polo Club.
He was a carpenter by trade and his home was never without a project. His love for his family was immeasurable. When anyone walked into his home they were greeted with his beautiful smile and more love than anyone can imagine. The more people around his table that he could feed the happier he was. He has left a legacy that will never be forgotten and will continue through his children and grandchildren.
The family wishes to give special thanks to the Davita Unit of Warren, ICU Unit at Hamot and Jamestown Urology for always going above and beyond for all his needs.
Surviving is his wife of 61 years, Erminia Iuculano; two daughters: Maria (Carl) Gullotti and Jeanette LoBello, both of Jamestown; daughter-in-law Ann Iuculano of Jamestown; nine grandchildren: Gabriella and Frankie Iuculano, Josh and Nick Russell, Chad Laska, Allessia Gullotti, Bianca (Erik) Hoovler, Christopher Gullotti and Marco LoBello; great grandchildren: Arkin, Ivar and Amelia Hoovler, Aurora Gullotti and Olivia, Nora and Ella Russell; a brother, Joseph (Sandy) Iuculano of Jamestown; and a sister, Sarah Boscia of Jamestown.
