On the morning of Jan. 16,2022, at approximately 11:24 AM, Napoli passed away surrounded by his loved ones in the comfort of his home.
Napoli was born in the comune of Isca Sullo Ionio in Italy on January 4, 1930 to Saverio and Rosina.
He is survived by his loving wife Rosina, his two children Marisa (David) and Saverio (Ann Marie), grandchildren David (Nicole), Gregory, Anna Rose, Luciano, and Saverio and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his sister Rosina and brothers Romualdo, Domenico (Pepe), and Vincenzo.
Throughout his life, Napoli was revered by all who knew him. He came to America from Italy with nothing but a few pennies and a dream of a better life. With his loving wife Rosina, whom he adored, they began life together in a place previously unknown to them. While in America, Napoli worked multiple jobs in order to support his family: most notably, he was a tailor and restaurant owner. He was always one to take pride in his suits and the food that he prepared for his guests.
Non ti preoccupare (do not worry) was his favorite phrase: he went through life joyfully and welcomed all into his home with open arms to host holiday parties, soppressata making, wine making and gravy making. He always tended to those around him to the best of his ability. When Napoli was not catering to the needs of others, he was tending to his yard: he was a perfectionist with his grapes.
Napoli will be deeply missed, but certainly never forgotten.
Friends and relatives are invited to attend his viewing at 9AM on Friday, January 21st, 2022, 9AM at Epiphany of Our Lord Church (12th and Jackson Streets). Funeral Mass at 10AM. Ent. Fernwood Cemetery in Lansdowne, PA.
