Craig F. Pistilli, age 63, of New Smyrna Beach, died Friday, June 15, 2018 at Florida Hospital New Smyrna. Born in Englewood, New Jersey to D. Richard and Carol Marsden Pistilli, Craig moved to this area in 1993 from Paramus, New Jersey.
A former dealer of Pistilli Ford in Paramus, Craig was an avid New York Yankees and New York Giants fan; he was a true American Patriot, he contributed and was a member of many conservative organizations and causes, for he believed in keeping our constitution and freedom intact, serving with the Southeast Volusia Republican Club where his wife Mary Ann Pistilli is President. Craig’s hobby was restoring old cars. He was honest, kind and giving all of the time. There will never be another Craig Pistilli, for he stayed true to who he was as a person.
Survivors include his wife of 25 years, Mary Ann; a sister, Lynn Pistilli, of Allendale, New Jersey; an uncle, Frederick Pistilli, and his wife, Roddie, of Tiburon, California; 5 nephews, Gregory and Nicholas Warner, Christopher Pakula, Raymond Dorso and Bobby Seneca; 2 nieces, Sherrie Schwartz and Elizabeth Hogue; sister-in-law, Karlann Bock, 2 brother-in-laws, Robert and Rodney Seneca; and a mother-in-law, Veronica Gardner and one great-nephew Harrison Warner.
