We got a sad e-mail last night from Cindy Costanza and Lisy Espindola, announcing the untimely death of Marcio Sacchi, a 1979 graduate of Verona High School and father of three:
Marcio Sacchi graduated from Verona High School and has owned a home on Dodd Terrace almost all of his life. The family has been struggling financially in these hard economic times and were trying to sell the home.
However, today Marcio finally was out on a job driving his truck, when he had a sudden heart attack. He was taken to the hospital but it was too late.
Marcio Sacchi had just turned 50. He leaves behind his son Blaze, who just graduated VHS with the class of 2010, his wife Janet and their children, Kimberly, 11, and Cody, who is going to start kindergarten at F.N. Brown in September. He also is he survived by his brothers Fabio and Paul; a third brother also died at 50. Plans for services, which will be held Monday in Newark, are still being made.
Sacchi was self-employed in the trucking business and his death leaves his family without a breadwinner. Costanza and Espindola are collecting donations for the family. If you are in a position to help, please contact Cindy Costanza by e-mail at [email protected] or by phone at 973-886-8298; Lisy Espindola can be reached at 973-768-7711.
