LET US REMEMBER ...
The Lacey Food Bank lost a friend and comrade on June 2nd, when Emil
Ciangetti, former Chairman, and one of the original founders of the food bank, died as a result of an automobile accident.
Emil, 81, was a loving father to his grandson Steve, who he
adopted as a young boy. He was involved in the food bank until his death, and belonged to many civic organizatons
as well as being active in the Village Lutheran Church in Lanoka Harbor. He is honored for his many good deeds performed
within his family and his community.
Rest in Peace Friend.
Ralph Lanuto, shown here with his wife Edna, was a pioneer in the foodbank, back when Emil, Ziggie and he were the only
ones manning the "fort'. An active civic minded man, he served as our liaison to clubs and organizations. We miss his hearty
laugh and helping hands.
