Michael Carmen Pavesi
Michael Carmen Pavesi, 95, of Hammonton died peacefully on Dec 22, 2020 at home.
Born in Hammonton he was a lifelong resident. Always smiling and joking, he was a decorated combat veteran having served in the U.S. Army during WWII in Germany, where he participated in Moselle and Rhine Campaigns. He was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge and ETO Ribbon with two Battle Stars. While in the army, he enjoyed boxing. He was a member of the VFW Post 1026 in Hammonton. Michael had worked as a Union Painter at Bally’s Park Place and National Foods. He had previously worked at several clothing factories in the Hammonton area. Those who had the pleasure of knowing “Pop,” as everyone who knew him endearingly called him, knew the emphasis he placed on hard work and how much family meant to him. On any given Saturday you could find him betting horses at the track and every night sitting at the dinner table with his loving family.
He is predeceased by his wife, Anne C. Pavesi (nee Domenico) and his two brothers, Russell and Anthony Pavesi.
Surviving are his loving son, Joseph; daughter-in-law, Sheryl; grandchildren, Michael (Liesse) Pavesi, Michele (Michael) LoFreddo and Joseph (Megan) Pavesi; sister-in- law, Rita Pavesi; brother-in-law, Frank Domenico; and many cousins, nephews and nieces.
