Obituary of Gilbert Biancucci
Passed away peacefully on November 27, 2022, at age 78, after an unexpected illness. Gil grew up in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, the son of a steel worker, and his Yinzer roots ran deep throughout his life. After a brief time teaching, these roots inspired him to pursue a career as a union organizer, and he fought tirelessly for teachers as a NYSUT Labor Relations Specialist throughout his 30 year career.
While the Steelers and the Union were immensely important to Gil, nothing compared to his love for his family. A more supportive, and loving husband, dad, and “Nonno”, could not be found. His children and grandchildren were his greatest joy, and he was their biggest fan and cheerleader. At his own retirement dinner, rather than speak about himself, he proclaimed his first grandson, who was 3 months old at the time, “an absolutely fantastic individual”.
Towards the end of his life, he lovingly cared for his wife and best friend, after her Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and continued his role as a stalwart father and Nonno. Gil was predeceased by his sister, Leila, and his parents. He is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Maureen, and his children, Danielle (Brian) Diglio, and Matt (Jenna) Biancucci; and his grandchildren, Jackson, Aidan, Logan, and Giovanni, all “fantastic individuals”.
Please join the family Saturday, December 3rd at 9:30 am, at Sacred Heart Cathedral, 296 Flower City Park, Rochester, N.Y. for the celebration of his Funeral Mass. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer's Association. The private interment will take place at Holy Sepulchre.
