My Story

My dad, Salvatore Vito D'Incecco, was born on July 17, 1946 in Manhattan to Rose and Vito D'Incecco. He was the oldest brother to Angela, Bobby, and Vito Jr ( RIP).  He grew up in the Authur Ave and Allerton Ave sections of the Bronx, NY.  He attended Samuel Gompers Technical High School in the South Bronx and graduated with an Electronic Technician degree in 1964.  He then began working as an Electronic Technician all over New York City fixing televisions and radios.  Later, he bought a drycleaning store and had a successful drycleaning business located at 3421 Boston Post Rd in the Bronx called "Daisy Cleaners" which is still there today.

 After meeting and marrying my mom, Linda, he had me, Danielle, on December 4, 1973 and my sister, Suzanne on August 22, 1975. While running a drycleaning store in the Bronx, he bought a small house in Yonkers, NY.  Shortly after moving in, he knocked half the house down and began rebuilding it from scratch. He also put a second floor on a one level ranch. As we were growing up, my dad purchased a 30 foot motorhome where he took us on family vacations up and down the East coast. We enjoyed many fun times traveling in that motor home!  In addition to travel, my dad also enjoyed music. He taught himself to read music and play the organ. He did this for several years straight wearing out his slippers by using the pedals on the organ so much! We grew very accustomed to listening to very loud organ music!  In addition, he learned how to oil paint and many times I would come home and find my dad in a painter's smock.  He also enjoyed building miniatures  and built me a very large Victorian Dollhouse.So what if I got too old to play with it? He still did it. Equipped with light fixtures and everything!

Trains were another one of my dad's many interests. Every Christmas he would set them up around the Christmas tree anad take me to the "Toy & Train Show." Christmas is my favorite memory of my dad.  He would dress as Santa Claus every year and wake us each Christmas Eve.  He did such a good job of convincing my sister and I he was Santa, our teachers told him to tell us because we were getting too old to still believe! That was my dad - he always took things to the extreme.  I guess you could say he was a perfectionist.


In 1986, my mom and dad decided to move to Bedford, NY, where my dad built a large contemporary house on 4 acres of land. Now he was able to play his organ without any complaints from neighbors! Only the deer and birds would be listening and he loved it.


My dad loved animals and we had many animals growing up. At one time, we had 6 dogs. Yorkies were his favorite and his two favorites were Juno and Rocky.  He also liked parrots. His cockatoo, Lola. was the love of his life.


Around 1990, my dad started what seemed to be an impossible project. To build a miniature carousel.  Not miniature -exactly, but a 9 foot in diameter carousel that weighs 1 ton and is a replica of 1912 antique Dentzel carousel. Guess what? He did it. It took him 10 years  to built and it is the closest thing every built to a real carousel, 1/7th the size, right down to the chariot he built from a picture and almost 50 horses.  I call it "Masterpiece in Miniature" because that is exactly what it is.  It was so remarkable that it was featured in the New York Times, The Journal News, Carousel News & Trader, and many other publications. This is a testament to the kind of man my father was, a one of kind, just like his carousel - there will never be another one like my dad.

My life is forever changed and I miss him every day of my life.


Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am sunlight on ripened grain.
I am autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
