Vincent A. Civitano April 24, 1934 – June 20, 1990
Remembering and celebrating my father Vincent
Yesterday I lit a memorial candle on the anniversary for 30 years since he has past. In his memory I am sharing a few of my favorite photos of him.

I never knew my birthfather yet it’s the most interesting feeling, as the years have gone by, as I have continued to blog and study his photos, as stories have been shared, visits with my brothers, my Uncle, my Aunt when still with us, boundless conversations with my Uncle, wonderful cousin reunions, Vincent has become so real to me. As if we had walked hand in hand and shared those special moments fathers and daughters often have.

Yesterday, on the anniversary of his passing, my brother Frank brought 4 red roses to our fathers grave for me. He placed one in honor of myself, his only daughter, one for his only grandchild, my daughter Marissa, and one for his two great grandchildren, Torance and Liam.
Vincent is buried along with my brother Vincent at
St. Raymonds Cemetery, Bronx, New York
Julia was born today, June 18th, 1909. She was the sister to my grandfather Frank Civitano.
Today I remember and celebrate her birthday.
Both Julia and Frank were born in New York City to Vincenzo Civitano and Nicoletta Marvulli. Just 4 months after Julia was born, her father Vincenzo was murdered, stabbed in the streets of the city over what was believed a ‘ice route’ dispute.

In this photo Frank and Julia (late teens or very early 20’s) are attendants in a wedding party. If any family members knows who wedding this might have been, has a wedding photo to match Julia’s dress, we would love to hear from you.
