Bartolomeo Verrelli, age 93, entered Heaven on Thursday morning March 2, 2023, in the comfort of his home with his loving family by his side. He was the beloved husband of Annunziata Lisi Verrelli for 70 years. Born in Torrice, Frosinone, Italy on May 19, 1929, he was a son of the late Carlo Antonio and Giovania Verrelli.
Bartolomeo came to this country in 1954 and fulfilled his dream. He was a proud member of LIUNA Local 665 and always gave of himself to help others. He had an incredible green thumb and could grow anything anywhere. Last summer at 93, he was able to still grow the best tomatoes you can ever imagine and everything else. His Grandchildren were his rainbow's and his great grandchildren were his pot of gold. He always had a smile when they were near. The values he taught and unconditional love he gave will live in the hearts of all who knew him.
