He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Bruno and Algiers Marroncelli; and maternal grandparents, Prince and Theresa Litterini. Dante was currently employed at UPS in New Stanton. He was a past member of St. Edward Church in Herminie. Dante was an avid ICP fan. He loved writing his own music and enjoyed playing Magic the Gathering. He had his barber/cosmetology license. He always had new styles in mind and was passionate about cutting his family’s and friends’ hair in his basement. He loved to cook and enjoyed picking mushrooms, even if they did smell up the house. Collecting vintage toys was part of his love for Halloween, his favorite holiday. He took Halloween very serious and was a “Zombie” every year at Station Square. He also had a passion for skateboarding and repairing bicycles. But most important of all, he loved spending time with his children and family. Teasing his sister was always on his list.

Marroncelli; sister, Mia (Joel) Milowicki, of Hunker; two special nephews and niece; Joel Paul, Giada Camille and Jace Patrick; in-laws, Charles and Regina Hirth, of Herminie; and several aunts, uncles and cousins, who loved him dearly.
