He was born on November 5, 1941 the son of Michael and Annunciata Cupola in the small town San Vitaliano, Compagnia of Italy. It was in Italy that he met his beloved Rosa Limonciella. Rosa had moved to the US in 1960 as a young woman, but upon a return to Italy, she caught Giuseppe’s eye and it was on October 16, 1966 that he made her the lucky Mrs. Cupola. He was serving in the Italian army but service was ending as he married and they came to the US two and a half months after their wedding on December 30, 1966. They took off from Italy in 1966 and landed in the US in 1967. It was here that they started and raised their family of five. They had a loving family life and his tradition of love and support for one’s family will live on through his children and his precious grandchildren.
