Obituary for Oreste Di Sciullo

Oreste  Di Sciullo
O. V. “Rusty” Di Sciullo, 92, passed away on Saturday, February 3, 2018, at his home in Arlington, Texas.
Funeral Service: 5:00 p.m. Saturday, February 10, at Wade Family Funeral Home, 4140 W. Pioneer Parkway, Arlington. Interment: Democrat Cemetery, Mills County. Visitation: 4-5 p.m. Saturday prior to the service at the funeral home.
Memorials: Donations may be made to the Saint Vincent Ferreri Festival in care of Wade Family Funeral Home at this time.
Rusty was born Oreste Vincenzo Di Sciullo on August 2, 1925, in Fallo, Abruzzo, Italy, the second child of Luigi and Rosalba (Mariano) Di Sciullo. Oreste lived with his parents and older brother, Gianni, in the small Apenninic village of Fallo for 12 years prior to the family’s immigration to Boston in 1937 where his younger brother, Gino, was born.
Rusty met his wife, Daphne Yvonne Stevens, when he was stationed at Camp Bowie near Brownwood, Texas. They married in Massachusetts in July of 1947 and returned to Texas in 1950. Through his engineering work, he became a significant contributor to the growth of the city of Arlington and its civic, educational, and religious communities.
Prior to being stationed at Camp Bowie, Rusty’s military service sent him to the European Theater of Operations during WWII where he was part of the 43rd Recon Squadron in General Patton’s Third Army. His combat experience included action in France, Germany, and Austria. He also participated in the first military operation that crossed the Alps since Hannibal when segments of the Third Army crossed into the Italian-Yugoslavian borderlands to prevent Yugoslavian leader, Marshall Tito, from occupying lands outside his country’s recognized boundaries.
Survivors: He is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Gino and Patrizia Di Sciullo; son and daughter-in-law, Steve and Sally Di Sciullo; daughter and son-in-law, Linda and Doug Fulton; son, Victor Di Sciullo; two granddaughters; two step-granddaughters; one great-granddaughter; and three step-great-grandsons.
