84, Korean War veteran, United Zion resident
Danny Zampino, 84, of Lancaster, passed away Friday, July 12, 2013 at United Zion Retirement Community in Lititz.
Born in Bronx, N.Y., he was the son of Frank and Catherine (Dattero) Zampino, who both had immigrated from Italy. He was married to his life-long best friend, Brigid (Cardone) Zampino, for 59 years.
Danny served in the U.S. Army (the Hell on Wheels unit) from 1950 to 1952 and was stationed, among other places, in Germany and Texas. He worked first for the U.S. Postal Service and then for the New York Public Library in Manhattan, where he performed many services including locksmithing, mechanical repairs and building maintenance.
After retiring and moving to Lancaster, he worked part-time for Weis Market. He had a passion for woodworking and, working from his basement shop, made many beautifully designed and detailed gifts for family and friends over the years. Every job he ever undertook was performed with dedication, excellence and love.
He was a member of St. Anthony of Padua Church in Lancaster.
In addition to his beloved wife, he is survived by two sons: Daniel, husband of Beth Zampino, of Short Hills, N.J.; Tom, husband of Rachel Zampino, of Port Washington, N.Y.; six grandchildren: Steven, Bryan, Kelly, Kaitlin, Elizabeth and Emma; one brother: Michael Zampino; and two sisters: Marie Zampino and Ann Zampino Morreale; brother-in-law: Joseph, husband of Julie Cardone; and many nieces and nephews.
A Catholic Mass was held at St. Anthony of Padua Church on July 16. Entombment took place in Ferncliff Cemetery, Hartsdale, N.Y. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the United Zion Retirement Community, 722 Furnace Hills Pike, Lititz, PA 17543.
