In Loving Memory of Charles William Dipuccio, Sr., known to family & friends as “Charlie” or “Papa”.  He was born in Galveston, Texas on July 25, 1931 to Dominic and Anna Dipuccio and passed away on December 31, 2022 in Bayou Vista Texas.

Charlie was a 1948 graduate of Ball High School, in Galveston, Texas. He later went on to enlist in the United States Navy and served proudly from 1952 -1954. Not long after his discharge he met & married the love of his life Vivian Louise to whom he was married to for 66 years until her passing in 2020. Together they had 3 wonderful children, 5 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

Charlie was a longtime member of VFW Post 5400, the Pipefitters Local 211, and a Master Plumber and worked for Air Products, Inc. until his retirement in 1995 to spend time with his growing family.

Charlie’s work ethic and generosity spilled over to all of his children and he was truly loved by all who met him. Charlie and Vivian raised their three children in Hitchcock, Texas and upon his retirement moved to Bayou Vista, Texas where the door was always open and there was a seat at “Charlie’s Bar” for anyone! Charlie will be remembered for his famous Spaghetti Gravy, Paprikash and of course, Homemade Bailey’s Always at Christmas Eve!

He mostly enjoyed dancing with his wife Vivian, Coaching Little League Baseball with his 2 sons, Rocky and Rusty, Adoring his daughter Ricki Marie & entertaining his numerous friends and loved ones. He will be missed dearly and in our hearts forever.

  1. Dipuccio Family, it’s Mary Lou Fox Kelso, the middle daughter of Stefinia (Honey) Vlastelica Fox and Walter J Fox, Jr. My mom was the second daughter of grandma (Anna’s) first family. I wanted to express my sincere sympathy for Charlie’s passing. When we were growing up, Charlie was always entertaining…. whether it was a family gathering, funeral, etc. May the Eternal Light shine on your family at this difficult time.
