Pasquale Truglia passed away on May 13, 2021 at the age of 88.
Patsy, as many knew him, left this world as he lived it – laughing, battling, and finding joy wherever it be. His death came after a long full life. Born in Palermiti, Italy; he survived war-torn Italy during WWII. Pasquale then crossed the Atlantic as a teen to start a new life going on to live in Hull for over 50 years. He raised two loving daughters along with his devoted wife of 63 years, Antoniette. In 1991 Pasquale overcame a battle with a brain tumor, to live on in health for 30 more years, seeing his five adoring grandchildren grow and enjoy their time with him.
The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Pasquale. He loved working outdoors – landscaping and helping his wife with her plush garden. He loved the company of loved ones – playing games like bocce and horseshoes, while telling stories. His uncanny ability to find happiness in the little things in life is to be envied, as a smile was never far from his face. Survived by wife Antoniette, daughters Maria and Josie, sons in law Rosario and Domenic and five grandchildren – Pasquale Truglia leaves a legacy of love and strength.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to the Funeral Mass Wednesday in St. Mary’s Parish in St. Ann’s Church, Hull at 11 AM. Burial will be private.
