By on April 13, 2016

Geno R. Crivelli, 65, of Bowmansville, died April 7, 2016, as the result of an auto accident on Route 272, Ephrata Township.

He was the husband of Deborah B. (Dusek) Crivelli. They would have been married 42 years this June. Born in Pittsburgh, he was a son of the late Geno J. and Agnes (Yurkovich) Crivelli.

Geno worked as a millwright and machinist for CarTech for 29 years, retiring in 2013. He was a graduate of Sto-Rox High School, McKees Rocks; and had a degree in mechanical engineering through U.S. Steel. He was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes R.C. Church, New Holland.

Little League Baseball was his everything. He served on the board of directors of Reading American Little League for 13 years and coached for many years. He was an umpiring chief for 13 years and a District 23 umpiring chief for three years. Geno helped develop Rotary Park (Little League) in Reading and served on the Brecknock Township, Lancaster County Park & Recreation Board.

He loved football, especially his Steelers. He had a passion for helping anybody, teaching and training youth, but his real passion was his “Boy Toys.” He will be remembered for his culinary arts skills; his mac and cheese, fried pepperoni and salami and take-out. He also enjoyed traveling on his motorcycle with his wife and friends. He loved his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and loved spoiling them. He always looked forward to movie night with the grandkids. If he didn’t harass you, he didn’t like you.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his children: Geno R. Crivelli, Jr., Bowmansville; Christopher J. Crivelli, Reading; Christine D., wife of Troy Price, Reinholds; brother: David Crivelli, Shelocta; sister: Cherie A., wife of Frank Cuteri, Jacksonville, Fla.; eight grandchildren: Serenna Lash, Saverio Crivelli, Colton Desimone, Brianna Crivelli, Skyler Price, Ty Crivelli, Jazmine Crivelli, Antonia Crivelli; and three great-grandchildren: Serenity Pope, Harmony Pope and Anthony Crivelli.

He was predeceased by siblings: Kathleen, Deborah, and Phillip.

A mass of Christian burial was celebrated April 13 in St. John Baptist de la Salle R. C. Church, Shillington. Interment followed in Bowmansville Union Cemetery, Bowmansville.
