Vincent Arciero of Lake Mary, FL formerly of Pine Bush, NY, entered into rest on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at home. He was 78.
The son of the late Enrico Arciero & Filamina Marrano Arciero, he was born on May 27, 1940 in Brooklyn, NY.
For most of his life he owned restaurants in the local area. But his trade of plumbing was always a part of his life. But his businesses did not define the man he was or why people knew him. It was his loving and giving nature that people knew him by. He wasn’t happy unless he was in his garden or kitchen cooking for his family and friends. Every Sunday was like Thanksgiving not just because he cooked a feast but for being surrounded by all the people he loved. Family meant everything to him and he passed that tradition to his daughters.
He is survived by his 3 beloved daughters, Donna Judson & husband Richard, Lisa Bruno & husband Jack, & P.J. Bruno; “Poppy” was adored by his grandchildren Amanda & Michael Judson, Ashley Brennan, Vincent & Isabella Bruno; brother, Rudy Arciero; 2 sisters, Lucia Delesparo & Anna Ferro; a loving uncle to several nieces & nephews.
He was predeceased by his wife, Joan Stoltz Arciero; 4 brothers, Nino, Rocco, Salvatore & Joseph Arciero; sister, Ida.
