Ben Vitali
February 23, 2013, 05:00 AM

Beni Vitali died Feb. 11, 2013 at his Burlingame home. He was 83.

Beni, son of the late Lorenza Vitali and Velina Rosa Tarabini, spent his early years in Pedesina, Italy. He journeyed to America in 1949 and settled in the Bay Area where he met his late wife, Marie Louise Caule.

Married in 1953, Beni and Marie settled in Burlingame and raised three daughters. For 35 years, he and a partner owned and operated the Peninsula's well-known Roma Italian Delicatessen in San Bruno.

Beni genuinely loved spending time with family. A humble, no nonsense man with the heart of two, Beni lived simply and was fully devoted to family.

Beni is survived by daughters Marisa, Rosemarie and Carla; brother Guido; sister Dilma; grandsons, Jeremy, Jacob and Eric; great-grandchildren Cheyenne and Wyatt; nephews, Roberto, Oliviero and Jonny; nieces Antoinetta, Daniella and Liliana and best friend Frances. He is preceded in death by grandson Justin.

A memorial service will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, March 2 at Our Lady of Angels Catholic Church, 1721 Hillside Drive, Burlingame.
