Obituary

Pasquale Anthony Versaci was the only son born to Sicilian immigrant parents in the Harlem section of Manhattan in NYC. After leaving Manhattan in his late teens, he lived the rest of his life in the Bronx except for a 10-year interim period when he lived in Cocoa Beach, Florida.

He married Patricia Jacox (deceased in 2013) and over almost 60 years together they raised three daughters, and were blessed to have four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren (who called him “Papa Wine”).

He started his food career at the age of 13 cleaning chickens in the local market. While working part-time making pizza pie in the Gun Hill Tavern in the Bronx, he earned the nickname “Paddy Pies”, a name that remained with him for the rest of his life. He spent most of his career as the chef at Faiella’s Pine Tree Inn on Boston Road where he worked for almost 30 years. Being part of the Pine Tree Family was something that shaped his life and that he treasured always. Until just before his recent illness, he was still making a weekly menu and cooking dinner every night.

He was blessed with a wonderful life filled with family and friends who loved, adored and respected him. He will be remembered for his witty sense of humor, his infallible memory, his incredible work ethic, his commitment to his friends and family and his beautiful and never wavering devotion to his family.

He was widowed by the death of his wife Patricia in 2013; he is survived by his daughters, Deborah Esposito Turco (Michael Turco), Patti Versaci Erfan (Sherif Erfan) and Donna Versaci Spiegel (Randy Spiegel), four grandchildren, Kimberly Cardone Zumpano, Deborah Cardone Greco, Michael Avallone and Jake Spiegel, and three great-grand-children, Raffaele, Olivia and Juliana Greco.

He passed away peacefully on August 23, 2020, following a brief illness. His final arrangements were entrusted to the care of the Balsamo Funeral Home, Bronx, NY. Following a private Catholic Mass at the Church of St. Theresa on August 25th, his remains will be cremated and interred with those of his late wife, Patricia, at Ferncliff Cemetery, Hartsdale, NY.

A Celebration of His Life will be scheduled in the coming weeks.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that anyone who would like to do so please make a donation to the hospice that provided such comfort to him (and his late wife) in his final days, or to the charity that Pasquale passionately supported during his lifetime:
