Emelio Stucchio

May 4, 1955 to October 22, 2023

Emelio Stucchio, age 68, of Parrish, Florida, passed away on Sunday, October 22, 2023. Emelio was born in Brooklyn, New York to Aniello (Neal) and Nancy (Macchiarella) Stucchio who have since passed.

Emelio graduated from Lindenhurst High School and attended college at Farmingdale University and Suffolk Community College. He attended on a wrestling scholarship and graduated with a bachelor’s degree. He also studied CAD design and attended Hamburger University for McDonalds.

Emelio had a strong faith in the Lord. He had confidence in his salvation through Jesus Christ. Throughout his life, Emelio loved to listen, play, and write music. He sang whenever he could, sometimes in wine and cheese venues, with the family and just for fun at home. He also enjoyed building car models. There are some merchants in and around Sarasota and Parrish with models built by Emelio. He loved to take them to the local businesses and let them know that he appreciated them. His collection of HO cars, Matchbox, Johnny Lightning, and Hot Wheels would amaze the average collector. He was proud of the cars and his racetracks that he had built over the many years. He loved the Winter Nationals at the local track and looked forward to going yearly.

Emelio had a wonderful work ethic and was a dedicated employee for Miltope Corporation, Shoney’s Restaurant, McDonalds Restaurant and Publix Supermarket. He had longevity in all his associations with his employers and held management positions in most. He was nominated in 2007 for Best Bosses in Biz 941 and had a section of the magazine edition all about him and how he was to work with.

Emelio is survived by his wife of almost 21 years, Theresa, whom he married on December 20, 2002, in their home in Sarasota, Florida. Also, two sons and daughter-in-law who he was so immensely proud of: Tyler V. and Nicole Smith and Adam D. Smith. He also leaves behind sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, several nieces and nephews and great nieces and great nephews, Aunt Marge D’Agostino, Aunt Sue Mediate and several cousins. The grand pets that he adored and tickled his heart, King, Gimli, and Nina.

Emelio was a wonderful husband, so generous and loving. His heart was always full and he loved life and sharing his experiences with others. He loved the holidays, especially Christmas, as all those who have been to the house know. He had the spirit of Christmas in his heart all year long.

The passing of Emelio is incomprehensible. Our hearts hurt and it does not make sense. The only consolation to this is that he is free of pain and in the presence of the Lord. We will love and miss him deeply and forever.

The family would like to thank the recent health care people in our lives, Dr. Luangphakdy, Dr. Ghose, Lisa, Cindi, Donna, Carrie, Meghan, Danielle, and more with Florida Home Health.

A Celebration of Life is planned for Saturday, November 25, 2023, at 11:30 am at The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature 201 10th St. West, Bradenton, FL 34209.

    Emelio was a loving, compassionate man who adored his wife and family. It was a pleasure getting to know him and Theresa over the past year. He faced the many many challenges he went through with strength & determination. Our hearts are broken, along with yours.

    One often wonders about the people in your life that are taken way too soon. Emelio was just that, taken way too soon. He had such a great sense of humor and made anyone who knew him feel special and appreciated. His humor never failed to make you giggle. He got so giddy over the simplest things he was a child at heart and shared that joy with all around him. He loved and adored his diamond Princess my beautiful aunt Tre. We will miss him. We will it’s his joy. We will miss his presence. God bless you much love and Grace upon you. Love and bald head rubs Coco and Dave

    Emelio, or "Butch" as my Mom named him, always was happy and smiling. Our Moms were sisters. We grew up in the same house like brothers. An absolute hero to me, he taught me about music, cars, weightlifting and so many other life lessons. I loved to tag along with him to his band practices and hanging out with his friends. I used to record him playing guitar and singing songs like, "Who'll Stop the Rain" and "I'm your Captain". There are many wonderful memories and stories. He will be loved and missed forever. Until we meet again, my sweet cousin, my you rest in peace!
