Agostino Gencarelli, 86, of Oak St., Westerly, RI passed away on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at The Westerly Hospital surrounded by his loving family.

Agostino also leaves behind ten siblings, Natale Gencarelli and wife Bianca, Aldo Gencarelli and wife Terry, Nunziata Scavello, Rosina Gabriele and husband Francesco, Ninetta Ferarro and husband Antonio, Giovanna DeFranco and husband Giuseppe, and Lina Intrieri of Westerly, Luisa Gencarelli and Maria Gencarelli of Italy and Assunta Luzzi and husband Salvatore of Australia; seven grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife Maria Gencarelli and brothers-in-law, Natale Scavello and Natale Crocco.
