Obituary

Franco Saraceni, 89, of Hamilton entered into God’s eternal rest on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at home.  Born in Orsogna, Chieti, Italy Franco immigrated to the U.S. in 1946. He has resided in the Trenton/Hamilton Township area all his life.

Franco’s life always revolved around his enduring love of family.  He was a diligent employee as a foreman at CV Hill Refrigeration for over 35 years where he never missed a day of work and was recognized for his many achievements.  Upon retirement, Franco devoted all of his time to raising his grandchildren and spending time with family and friends.  He and his wife, Concetta, enjoyed spending the winter months at his home in Florida socializing, cooking, and playing Bocce.  His legacy of love and devotion to his wife, daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren will live on.

Son of the late Francesco and Maddalena (DiVirgilio) Saraceni; brother of the late Maria Saraceni; Franco is survived by his beloved wife of almost 62 years, Concetta “Tina” (Fortunato) Saraceni; his two daughters, Maddalena Reggi (David), and Patricia Saraceni-Corman (Richard); three grandchildren, Justin and Alexandra Reggi, and William Corman; a brother, Aldo Saraceni of Italy; a brother-in-law, Alberto Fortunato (Rosanna) of Italy; and several nieces, nephews, and other family and friends.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, February 2, 2019 at 11:00 AM at St. Raphael’s Church, 3500 So. Broad St., Hamilton, NJ.  Cremation will follow mass and will be private.  Entombment of cremated remains will take place at a later date in St. Mary’s Cemetery.  Family and friends may call Saturday morning from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM at the Hamilton Brenna-Cellini Funeral Home, 2365 Whitehorse-Mercerville Rd., Hamilton, NJ 08619.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Franco’s memory to the American Heart Association at www.heart.org  Please visit Franco’s tribute page at www.brennacellinifuneralhomes.com
