In December we said goodbye to our good friend and colleague, Dino D’Alesio. Dino was a fantastic team member for over 11 years at Valley Industrial Trucks. He worked in several capacities in our service and support departments, for most of it working with our customers obtaining parts. Dino was a great guy and worked hard for our customers to see they got what they needed, when they needed it, with a great attitude. We will certainly miss him, as will many of our great customers. Below is his Obituary.
Dino Mario D’Alesio, 61, passed away Thursday, Dec. 24, 2020, at his home.
Dino was born Dec. 20, 1959, in Youngstown, a son of Mario C. and RoseAnn Perruzzi D’Alesio.
He was a 1977 graduate of Chaney High School and he worked in sales and support services at Valley Industrial Trucks.
Dino married the love of his life, Carol Zehner on Oct. 14, 1995. Together they were blessed with three sons who were their world.
A true family man, Dino’s greatest joys were spending time with his wife and three sons, coaching his boys and always being their biggest fan. He enjoyed helping his sons practice tennis and spending Sunday afternoons with his boys cheering on the Steelers and the Packers. It was a joy for Dino to spend time with family and friends, especially family gatherings. Dino never took a day for granted. He lived each day to the fullest and made sure to spread his love and pure joy, not only to his family, but to all he encountered. Dino will always hold a special place in everyone’s hearts and will be truly missed.
In addition to his wife, he is also survived by his three sons, Dino Mario, Carmen and Antonio D’Alesio; three sisters, Debra (Ron Doll) D’Alesio of Youngstown, Donna LaCivita of Youngstown, and Diana (Don Constantini) D’Alesio of Youngstown; his brother, Donald “Bam” (Patty Campy) D’Alesio of Youngstown; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Dino was preceded in death by his parents; and sister-in-law, Elaine D’Alesio.
