LoPRESTI, VITO

Funeral mass was offered Feb. 9 at St. Nicholas R.C. Church, Jersey City, for Vito LoPresti, 81, of Jersey City. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on Feb. 5. Vito was born in Scala di Patti, Messina, Sicily, and immigrated to Jersey City in 1967. Vito was irrepressibly happy his entire life, sporting an impish smile and a generous laugh. He was a lifelong masonry worker with Local 3, who retired in 2004, just in time to enjoy the arrival of his two grandchildren, whom he treasured. Vito enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his family. He loved returning to Sicily nearly every summer to visit relatives there, while always making sure to be back in late August to can dozens of bushels of Jersey plum tomatoes. Vito was the husband of 51 years to Lucia Rampulla LoPresti; father of Antonia LoPresti Giglio and her husband Anthony Giglio, and Maria LoPresti Rufino and her husband Ralph Rufino, Jr.; grandfather of Sofia and Marco Giglio; brother of Giuseppe LoPresti (deceased) and Rosaria Orlando (deceased); Gaetano LoPresti and Maria Pristera (deceased); Antonino LoPresti (deceased) and Rosaria Mastrolembo; Maria LoPresti Maimone (deceased) and Santo Maimone; and Michael LoPresti and Nunziata Ravipinto. Vito is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins. Services arranged by the Riotto Funeral Home & Cremation Co., Jersey City.
