Mario J. Tricomi

July 3, 1929 ~ April 17, 2020 (age 90)


SALEM – Mr. Mario J. Tricomi, 90 of Salem, beloved husband of the late Lucy (Lamessa) Tricomi who passed away just 18 days before her husband and together shared over 66 years of marriage, passed away on Friday, April 17, 2020 at his home with his loving family by his side.

Born in Salem, Mario was the son of the late John and Carmella (Pappalardo) Tricomi. Raised and educated in Salem, he attended Salem Public Schools and was a graduate of Salem High School, class of 1947.

A veteran of the Korean War, Mario proudly served his country as a member of the United States Army.

A life-long resident of the City of Salem, Mario spent his entire professional career as a truck driver for A.F. Goldsmith & Co. in Salem for 45 years until the time of his retirement.

A loving and caring husband, father and grandfather, Mario’s greatest joy were his grandchildren. Both he and Lucy lived for their grandchildren and they cherished all the time they were able to spend with them as they truly were the light and loves of their lives. In retirement, they enjoyed traveling, especially to the Caribbean Islands and all throughout Europe to visit family and friends. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and cared for him.

Mario is survived by his daughter, Maryann Tricomi of Salem, his son, Mario Tricomi and his wife Nancy of Beverly and his two grandchildren, Caitlin and Jonathan Tricomi both of Beverly. He was the brother of the late Grace Tricomi-Sanborn, Angie Tricomi, John Tricomi and Antonio Tricomi. The family wishes to thank Care Dimensions for their support during this time and the caring help of Nurse Maureen Strout, Dr. Messenger, Cynthia Guzman and Jill.
