Giuseppe La Franca, 82, long time resident of Rutherford, passed away Wednesday, May 27, 2020.
He was born in Palermo, Sicily to Paolo Francesco and Giuseppina (nee Tesauro) La Franca. He married his wife Caterina (nee Pitaressi) in Sicily. They remained there for 12 years before immigrating to the United States with their children to begin a new life.

Giuseppe was a Truck Mechanic and was employed for over 20 years with Peerless Importers in Brooklyn NY, retiring in 2000.

He would faithfully read the Italian newspaper, America Oggi.

Giuseppe will be sadly missed by his devoted wife of 60 years, Caterina, his adoring children, Patricia DeCamillis and husband Tony, Paul and his wife Maria, grandchildren, Joseph, Anthony, Lauren and Dana, great-grandchildren, Lucas and Gianna
