My husband's father was Sebastian Intravia - his mom was a Passanisi (Anna) and his dad was Joseph Intravaia. They both came from Melilli, Sicily and met in Middletown. They had a florist business on Main St. They had eight children and all the boys served in Italy. My father in law Sebastian attended Weslyan and went on to became a lawyer was part of the Thunderbirds and was involved in the liberation of Dachau.
