I am so sorry for your loss Linda. Please accept my Sincere condolences
After reading my Grandfathers Obituary a lifetime of memories come to mind. I think of the impact he had on my life. I am the man I am because of Herb Coluccio. A competitive edge was instilled in me form my earliest memories. He was hard on me, but it made me better. He believed in me no matter what I was doing. Grandpa told me I could accomplish anything. When someone believes in you it makes a huge difference in life. Words can’t express my appreciation for everything you have done for me. Vacations and fishing trips are special times for me. I was lucky to have a Grandpa that took time for me. Grandpa showed me skills in his shop that I used to support my family. I remember when I was 18 he gave me my first set of tools, some of them I still use today. I think Grandpa was hard on his whole family, but it’s because he knew we are special people. We are stronger, tougher, and made out of something different then everyone else. I know everything I do and everywhere I go a piece of Grandpa goes too. Grandpa always said. “ When it’s too tough for everyone else, it’s just right for us!” Anytime I want to stop or give up this saying comes to me, and I press on. I will miss the stories but miss the way you told them even more. The way you lived life is an inspiration to all your family. I promise to live life to the fullest in you memory. You always said “ Life is for the living.” I truly believe you lived it to the fullest. I can say without a doubt I’m better because of your impression on me. Thank you for all your influence, time, and inspiration over my life.
Love your Grandson Kenny
