Lucio B. BoleaNovember 10, 1927 ~ February 12, 2017 (age 89)
Lucio Barbara Bolea, 89, died suddenly yet peacefully, Sunday, February 12, 2017. He was a lifetime resident of Coraopolis, PA and also a longtime winter resident of Cape Coral, FL. He was born in Coraopolis on November 10, 1927, the youngest son of the late Alessandro and Annina Bolea.
He is survived by his six children, son, Richard Lucio Bolea (Diane), of Moon Township, PA; son, Raymond Anthony Bolea (Charleen), of Moon Township, PA; daughter, Dawn Marie DeBerry of Augusta, ME; son Robert Francis Bolea (Michelle) of Coraopolis, PA; son Randolph David Bolea of Moon Township, PA; daughter, Elaine "Honey" Bolea-Biearman (Kevin) of Fort Lauderdale, FL; sister, Barbara Adams of Coraopolis, PA and a longtime loving companion, Ellie Cornell of Cape Coral, FL. He was blessed with seven grandchildren: Robin, Zachary (Jennifer), Richelle (Joe), Allison, Tayler, Natalie and Elijah. He equally enjoyed two great-grandchildren, Avelyn and Lucia, while eagerly awaiting the arrival of a third.
Lucio was a gifted, self-taught mechanic servicing the Coraopolis area which eventually led to a path in the fuel oil industry. He spent his career at the helm of Bolea Oil Products and retired at the age of 50.
Lucio lived life large and full. He was charm personified and possessed an incredible ease in making friendships wherever he went. He enjoyed a passion for boating, motorcycling, and travel, especially to his beloved Italy and also to Germany while visiting his dear friends. He was an accomplished cook who loved to entertain. If you were at Lucio's you could always expect an amazing meal accompanied by good conversation and many laughs. When you left, it was with nothing but warm remembrances. His passing truly marks the end of an era and while it leaves us all heartbroken, we will celebrate and rejoice in the countless wonderful memories of him.
Upon Lucio's request, there will be no viewing and interment will be private.
