June 14, 1933 ~ March 2, 2016
Pasquale “Pat” Pagliuco, of Georgetown, Texas passed peacefully in his sleep on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 with his loving family by his side. He was 82 years old.
Pat was born on June 14, 1933 to Samuel and Antoinette (Vocoulo) Pagliuco in Kearney, New Jersey. In 1954, Pat joined the United States Army and selflessly served his country with distinction for over 25 years, earning numerous decorations to include the Meritorious Service Medal and Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal for numerous deployments, culminating with his retirement in 1979 as a Master Sargent. In 1958, while stationed in Germany, Pat married the love of his life, Annerose Melle-Krausse. Pat and Anne shared a true love story that was obvious to those who knew them. They supported and served one another as they instilled morals and strong family values into their three children. Pat thoroughly enjoyed the game of Pinochle with his good friends of over 35 years at the local VFW as well as a hot cup of coffee, he never turned down either. The thing Pat enjoyed most with his coffee was a meaningful conversation and a little bit of your time. We will miss Pat, intimately known as Dad and Opa, but we find comfort knowing he has been reunited with his love, Anne, and we will see him again.
To cherish his memory, Pat leaves behind his daughter, Christine Bonheim and husband Mike of New Bern, North Carolina, and two sons, Richard Pagliuco and fiancé Catherine Fahling of Washington DC, and David Pagliuco and wife Lucy of Georgetown, Texas, daughter-in-law, Michelle Katz of Colorado Springs, Colorado; eight grandchildren, Jeffrey Bonheim, Anthony Pagliuco, Vanessa Smith, Steven Bonheim, Christopher Pagliuco, Francesca Pagliuco, James Pagliuco, and Elizabeth Pagliuco; and four great-grandchildren, Antoinette Pagliuco, Claire Bonheim, Caitlin Bonheim, and Penelope Smith.
Pat was preceded in death by his parents and wife, Annerose Pagliuco.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donation in Pat’s name may be made to a charity of your choosing supporting our service men and women as well as AMed Hospice of Austin, Texas.
A graveside service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 26, 2016 at Kempner Cemetery, Kempner, Texas. The United States Army will present Military Honors.
