Giovanni P. Veneroni
Giovanni P. Veneroni, son of Carlo and Angela (Marli) Veneroni of Dorno, Italy, sadly passed away at the age of 103. John immigrated to America in 1929, living in New York City before marrying Theresa Gianetti in 1941, settling in West Springfield. He was a thirty-year employee of Gilbarco & Co, later retiring from TIG Welding and ending his working career at Mario’s Shoe Repair. As a lifetime member of the DAV, John was a proud Army veteran of World War II, taking part in the Normandy invasion. He told wonderful stories his family will treasure, of his youth in the “old country”, life in New York City and World War II. John was a fun-loving person who in his own words had a “long, good life”. His wife of 72 years, Theresa (Gianetti) Veneroni, died in 2012. He leaves two daughters, Anita Bourcier; her husband Donald, and Terry Vosburgh; her husband Anthony all West Springfield and a son John Veneroni of California.
