He was the beloved husband of 73 years, to the late Julia; the devoted father of Jayne Thompson (Gary); doting and cherished grandfather of Todd Thompson (Olga), Leslie Coleman (Jack), and Sara Stifter (Jason), the loves of his life; very proud and loving great-grandfather to Lindsey, Ethan, Rachel, Julian and Logan. He was born December 9, 1912, in Steubenville, the first born to the late Tommaso and Teresa,
eldest brother to five siblings in Montelanico, Italy; nephew, cousin, son-in-law, brother-in-law, uncle, great-uncle and godfather to many, whom he loved so dearly. His passing ends a generation in the Storace-Racca-Wade and Forint-Petrigala families. He was blessed by many friendships over all the years. He leaves a legacy which is both honorable and inspiring. He will be very missed. Ciao, Amerigo!
