Vincenzo DiLetizia, affectionately known as Vinny by those who knew him best, passed away peacefully on November 27, 2023, in Boston, MA, at the age of 90. Born on March 4, 1933, in the quaint town of Pontecorvo, Italy, Vinny was a man whose life was defined by his unyielding commitment to his family, his love for his work, and his boundless generosity.

Vinny's journey led him across the world when, in 1966, he and his beloved wife, Lucia (Spiridigliozzi) DiLetizia, made the brave decision to embark on a new life in America. They established their roots in Hyde Park, where they welcomed their son, Gino, and together they built a life filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories. Vinny's devotion to Lucia was unwavering, and their marriage of 67 years stands as a testament to their enduring love and partnership.

A loving father, Vinny took great pride in his family. His son, Gino DiLetizia, and daughter-in-law, Ada Maria of Hyde Park, were the recipients of his wisdom, warmth, and guiding hand throughout his life. Vinny's role as a cherished brother was beautifully illustrated in his relationships with Onorina Risi and her husband Nunzio of California, Renato DiLetizia and his wife Giola of Canton and the late Felicia Spiridigliozzi and her late husband John, Maddelena Ferdinandi and her late husband Louis, and John DiLetizia and his surviving wife Candy of Hyde Park. Vinny's family circle extended far and wide, encompassing numerous loving nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and friends, all of whom felt the touch of his kindness and compassion.

Vinny's professional life was characterized by hard work and dedication. After arriving in America, he found his calling in the construction industry, where he applied his considerable skills to build houses. His natural talent for working with his hands was evident to all who knew him. In 1975, Vinny transitioned to a career with Amtrak, where he continued to apply his tradesman's expertise until his well-earned retirement in 1998. His colleagues remember him as not just a coworker but a friend and mentor.

Beyond his work, Vinny was a man of many passions. His kindness was a beacon that drew people to him, and he was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Children and animals found a special friend in Vinny, and his love for them was pure and unwavering. Those who had the pleasure of sharing a glass of his homemade wine experienced not only the fruits of his labor but the warmth of his company. Vinny was truly a Renaissance man when it came to trades; there was no task he couldn't master with his capable hands.

Handy, loving, and kind—these words encapsulate the essence of Vinny. His legacy is one of love, generosity, and the joy of a life well-lived. Vinny's impact on the world was as profound as it was gentle, and he will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him.

As we bid farewell to Vincenzo DiLetizia, we do so with hearts full of gratitude for the time we shared with him. His spirit, embodied in the lives he touched, will continue to inspire and guide us. Vinny's story is one of a journey well-traveled, a life well-loved, and a man who will forever be remembered with fondness and admiration.
