Angelo Petitto

Angelo A. Petitto, son, brother, uncle and friend, was born in Clarksburg on March 4, 1941, to Angelo S. and Carolyn Arena Petitto. He died in Fort Myers, Fla., on Saturday (Feb. 1, 2014), and was a resident of the Smith Town community.

Angelo was a 1959 graduate of St. Francis High School, where he starred in football and was named the captain of the 1959 West Virginia All State football team. He served in the U.S. Army as a combat engineer in South Korea.

Angelo was co-founder of Petitto Mine Equipment Inc., a local mine equipment manufacturer. He shared in the development of the Petitto Mule, an internationally known longwall shield retriever sold worldwide and recognized by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the West Virginia State Development Authority.

In addition to his achievements and success in the business world, Angelo lived by his parents’ lifelong example of treasuring his family and their traditions. He will always provide his brother and sister and their family with stories and memories of happy holidays and time spent together.

He is survived by his brother, James L., and sister-in-law, Carol Cordyack Petitto; and his sister, Rose Virginia, and brother-in-law, George W. Marshall. Also surviving are many nephews and nieces who lovingly called him Uncle A., Michael and Brian Petitto, Jeffrey, Lydia and Vera Marshall, Julie, Rick and Alec Harris, Eliza and Max Roberson, and Amy, Jason, Anna, Kate and James Robbins. He is also survived by his friend and caregiver, Ray Hildreth.

Visitation will continue Saturday from 9 a.m. until the time of the Memorial Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. with V. Reverend Mark G. Ward, CP, VF, as celebrant. Inurnment will follow at East Oak Grove Cemetery.
