Family & friends are invited to attend a visitation on Tuesday, December 13th at the Vertuccio & Smith Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107), REVERE, beginning at 9:00 a.m., for Gene Anthony “Geno” Vadala who passed after a brief illness at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital surrounded by his family.

He is the devoted Grandfather of Owen Vadala of Rowley, Dominic & Thomas Chesna, both of Revere. He is the dear brother of Santa Zagami of Watertown & the late John Vadala. He is also lovingly survived by his adoring niece, Victoria Zagami of Watertown and cousin, Marie Serino of Revere. He shared a most tender relationship with his canine companion “Toby”.
