Carmen Casuccio

Carmen Joseph Casuccio, 85, of Barrackville, passed away Friday (April 26, 2013) at the home of his son and daughter-in-law, Raymond and Diana Casuccio, with his loving family at his side.

He was born Jan. 4, 1928, in Chiefton, son of the late Alexander and Mary Feranti Casuccio.

Carmen was a member of St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church and was a former member of All Saints Catholic Church in Barrackville, where he served in many capacities. He was a member of the VFW and served in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He was also a member of Knights of Columbus Council 942 Fairmont, and a former member of the Barrackville Volunteer Fire Department. Carmen also enjoyed hunting, gardening and planting beautiful flowers for his wife, being with family and telling them tall tales. He was a helping hand to the community. He retired from Owens-Illinois where he worked for 40 years.

Casuccio and wife Diana of Barrackville; four grandchildren, Domenick of Richmond, Va., Larry and wife Lisa of Barrackville, Cory and future wife Cari of Barrackville, and Ethan Casuccio of Barrackville; and two great-grandsons, Roman Anthony and Domenick Michael, who were his pride and joy.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, John and Angelo Casuccio; and four sisters, Carmella Bilotta, Rose Nicoletti, Tressa Catania and Genevieve Mazza.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
