Vincent Louis diGiorgi

Vincent Louis diGiorgi of 495 Ashland Drive, Hermitage, passed away unexpectedly of natural causes at 11:31 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2006, in Williamsport, Pa., Hospital and Medical Center, where he had been working. He was 61. Vincent was born July 12, 1945, in New Castle, a son of Louis and Dorothea Pecoraro diGiorgi. He was a 1963 alumnus of Neshannock High School and received his bachelor of science degree in nursing from Youngstown State University in 1975. He also graduated from the St. Elizabeth Health Center School for Nurse Anesthetists in Youngstown in 1990. Vincent was a nurse anesthetist and was currently contracted with Williamsport Hospital and Medical Center. He formerly owned and operated DiGiorgi Florists in Canfield. He was a former member of St. Vitus Church. Vincent was an extremely talented individual with many interests. He was an accomplished pianist, was multi-lingual and spoke Italian and French fluently, was proficient in sign language, and loved to read. His greatest joy, however, was the time he shared with his family. He was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew him, including his beloved dog, Cocoa. Surviving are his wife at home, the former Sandra Marie Ritter, whom he married May 30, 1970, in Boston; one daughter, Noreen Marie diGiorgi of Hermitage; two sons, Jarrod Vincent diGiorgi of Pittsburgh and Damon Vincent diGiorgi of Hermitage; his mother and father of New Castle; three brothers, Anthony diGiorgi and his wife, Anne, of Pittsburgh, Bruno diGiorgi and his wife, Mary Louise, of Tennessee, and Loren diGiorgi and his wife, Melissa, of New Castle; a brother and sister-in-law, Butch and Anne Ritter of Conneaut Lake, Pa.; and several nieces and nephews. His grandparents, Vincenzo and Onorina Russo Pecoraro, are deceased. The family suggests memorial contributions be made to Christ Lutheran Church, 396 Buhl Blvd., Sharon, Pa. 16146; or The Williamsport Hospital Foundation, in care of Sherry Watts, Director, 1100 Grampian Blvd., Williamsport, Pa. 17701.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
