We are saddened by the recent loss of Gene Ventimiglia. He was a man of many loves and talents. He enjoyed sailing, singing, playing musical instruments, woodworking and wine making. He was passionate about learning and he loved sharing his knowledge with others. Most of all, he truly enjoyed being with people.
Gene met Anne, the love of his life, while in college and they celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2019. During these five decades they welcomed five children and ten grandchildren.
Gene died peacefully on July 25, 2020 surrounded by family. His funeral mass will be held on Thursday, July 30th at 10:30am at stjamesofthemarches.com
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to a cause close to his heart, catholiccharitiesusa.org and njforestry.org.
For Ventimiglia Vineyard, the wine will continue to flow.
May Gene’s memory be a blessing while we continue in our family tradition of making high quality, hand crafted wine. You are welcome to visit our winery and raise a glass in honor of Gene, the father of our wines.
