Memorial Service Held for Sophomore
By Josh Pray
A special service was held on Valentine’s Day on campus for James Angelo Brozzetti, a sophomore who died in an automobile accident on Feb.6
Brozzetti, originally from Dunmore, died from injuries he suffered in an accident while travelling on Route 118 northeast of HughesvillE
Mark Salinger, a good friend of Brozzetti, described him as “Someone you could count on. You could go to him for confidence, he was always optimistic. He was just a great friend.”
Whether Brozzetti was in the weight room or cheering for his hometown, his smile could be seen from a mile away, putting everyone in a better mood, Salinger said.
At the service held in the Mary L. Welch Honors Hall, the Lycoming College Choir led the group in singing “Precious Lord.”
Speeches by Dr. Daniel Miller, dean of student affairs, the Rev. Marco Hunsberger, Sister Catherine Anne, Salinger and professor of computer science and chair of the faculty Dr. Eileen Peluso brought all in attendance to tears with the loving remarks and anecdotes that were shared.
A slideshow in the background depicting Brozzetti and all he loved ran the whole night, looking down upon everyone there in his memory.
In every picture he wore that famous, beaming smile, surrounded by his friends and loved ones. A prayer by candlelight and handwritten messages from all involved to the Brozzetti family brought the service to a close. The silence during the candle lighting was broken only by the sniffles of students and teachers alike, all saying a goodbye in their own special way.
The son of Diane Naughton Brozzetti and James Brozzetti was a 2004 graduate of Dunmore High School and played football for his hometown. He was born June 3, 1985.
At Lycoming, as a sophomore computer science major, he played on the intramural flag football team, and was a member of the Segmentation Fault Programming Team
