Dear Mrs. Savelloni, Angelo, Ermenio, and John,
I think of you so often, and with the most heartfelt love and fond memories I lift up my prayers for you, but especially now in this difficult moment, I hope and pray that you receive a special comfort. Of course there are no words to express how sad and sorry I am to hear this news. I always remember Mr. Savelloni for his gentle smile and warm heart, making me feel loved and welcome in your home. The happiness and fun our families enjoyed together will be with me forever. I miss you all very much, and dear sweet Mrs. Savelloni ~ I will miss your wonderful husband in a very special way, with deepest sympathy.

Heartfelt sympathy to Ann and the entire family with great love and affection. I will always remember Erminio busy in his garden. A devoted family man, who embodied the dignity of his generation. He was hardworking and faithful, a man of integrity and a good friend to all our family. I hold such dear memories of moments in the Savelloni holidays and ordinary days at Ann's kitchen table with John when we were so little so many years ago. Prayers are with all the family and for Erminio. I hope my Dad has had the opportunity to shake his hand in heaven once again. Sincerely, Pattiann Lodise Benson

What a great man and inspiration after reading that well written obituary. Coming to the US at 15, joining the Navy at 17 and being on the USS Missouri in the Pacific at those very important battles, working for PECO for 40 years and raising three great sons with a large family. Wasn't that truly "The American Dream" at that time? What a great life for a great man in "The Greatest Generation." John, you and all of your family were so Honored to have such a Great Father. You are Truly Blessed. May God be with You Mr. Savelloni.
Love, Jimmy Seaman
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Tony was a great supervisor, He took good care of his men. When we got in trouble we would try to switch the subject and talk about his service on the Mighty Mo. He soon forgot why we were in trouble (thankfully)
He was so proud of his service to our country.
Prayers and condolences to the family.
