Obituary

Natale "Nat" Fazzini passed away peacefully with his family by his side on June 7, 2017 at age 95. Born December 24, 1921 in Norristown, Nat was the son of Ottavia (Gaspare) and Giovanni Fazzini. He was the beloved husband of Joy (DiGiacomo) Fazzini who passed away in 1981.

Nat was the loving father of Natalie Fazzini Garner, the late Joyann Fazzini, Alexander Fazzini (Patricia), Andrew Fazzini (Bobbie), Mary Fazzini-DiCamillo (Michael) and Laurie Mangano (John). He was the cherished grandfather of 14 and great grandfather of 16. Nat was preceded in death by his brothers Alexander, Silvio, Amilcare and John. He is survived by many nieces, nephews and friends.

Nat was born and raised in Norristown before moving to Philadelphia for most of his life, then Abington and Plymouth Meeting in his later years. A devout Catholic, he was a member of St. Vincent De Paul Church in Germantown, and Epiphany of our Lord Church in Plymouth Meeting. He attended Norristown HS, class of '39 and was a graduate of Villanova University in '44. He had a long distinguished career in public accounting. Nat was an athlete, a life-long sports enthusiast who loved his Villanova Wildcats as well as all of the Philadelphia teams. He had a deep appreciation for the arts, literature and music and was an excellent chef especially food from the Marche region of Italy, recipes he learned from his parents. He spoke several languages and had a terrific sense of humor. Nat had an uncanny ability to relate to everyone he met.
