Lionel “Nello” Garlini

Wenatchee, WA

Lionel Garlini, beloved husband and father, died peacefully at the age of 91 on June 1, 2014. He was born in Bergamo, Italy in 1922. Lionel was a WWII Veteran and he lived and worked in many countries, including Italy, England, Africa and lastly, in the United States since 1967. He moved to Wenatchee in 1980, where he was known as the “Pesto man” at the farmers market. He started Garlini’s Restaurant in 1982, with his wife, Margaret, who preceded him in death in 1998.

He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Richard and Diane Garlini of East Wenatchee; his daughter and son-in-law, Alessandra and Randy Whitehall of Tacoma; three grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life in his honor will be held at Garlini’s Restaurant, Sunday, June 8, 2014, from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. Arrangements are assisted by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
