Surrounded by family Gabriele Daddi passed away on March 19, 2022. We were lucky to have him for 91 and a half years. Gabriele "Enzo" Daddi was born in Zara, Italy October 11,1930 to Antonietta and Giuseppe Daddi he was 5th in line of 7 surviving children. He never finished more than the 3rd grade and was self-taught learning to read and write in at least 2 languages. He became a Profugo along with his mother and younger siblings at the end of the war. He came to America in February of 1956 and lived in a one-bedroom apartment in hell's kitchen with mother and siblings. He had a few jobs to help take care of his family before becoming a longshoreman. He had his main profession for 40 years along with many additional part-time jobs in order to provide for his family. He met our mother Mari-Mette "Mia" Ulmo in 1968 in Central Park. Perhaps you've heard their love story before. It is one the bore this family of 6.
