Obituary of Gaetano Passarelli

Please share a memory of Gaetano to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.


Gaetano “Guy” Passarelli, a Westport resident for 68 years, died March 5, 2018 after a long illness. He was 92. 

Born Nov. 1, 1925 in Jelsi Italy, he immigrated with his wife Filomena and their two oldest daughters to Westport’s Saugatuck area in 1960. 

Upon arrival to Saugatuck, he pursed a very successful career as a self-employed master tailor. He had a passion for gardening and always enjoyed his summer gardens. 

He is survived by his wife Filomena, happily married for 63 years; his daughters Franca (Sam), Marisa (Norman), Lucy (Bill), Nella and Sondra (Larry). He most cherished his four grandsons Michael, Christopher, Laurence and Peter. We will all miss his gentle and sweet ways.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00AM on Friday, March 9, 2018 at The Church of the Assumption, 98 Riverside Avenue.  Friends and family are invited to meet directly at church.

Entombment will be held privately here at Willowbrook Cemetery in the Wintergem Mausoleum.

Memorial contributions in lieu of flowers may be made to the Westport Lions Club, 370 Post Road East Westport, CT 06880. 

Westport's Harding Funeral Home has been entrusted with Mr. Passarelli's arrangements.
