Who is the Christopher Cannatella Family? (click a name for a pic!)

In 1906, Luciano Cannatella (my great grandfather) left his home in Polizzi Generosa, Provincia Di Palermo, Sicilia to start a new life in the United States. He started our family on Elizabeth Street in New York's "Little Italy", where he was in business setting up and supplying fruit and vegetable vendors in the city.

Christopher J. Cannatella (author) is a Communications Network Developer and a Cisco Certified Academy Instructor teaching the Cisco certification curriculum at Burlington County College in New Jersey. (...Computer networking for those not familiar with Cisco.) If you ever considered a rewarding career in the field of computers, consider the Cisco Networking Academy Program. There are are currently 452,784 students studying in 10,244 academies in 152 different countries. And the certifications are portable WORLDWIDE!

Giocchino (Jack) Cannatella (center in pic), is my dad. We all thought he'd never leave Queens, New York. For years he lived in the same buildings where I lived as a child. But in the Summer of 2002 he surprised us all and retired early to live in the fresh air of the New York State mountains! Perhaps due to the air pollution in NY City, dad was diagnosed with Leukemia in November 2005. He has recently undergone extensive chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. ...Thanks to his brother Vincent Cannatella, who was a match! And thanks to the skilled doctors at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center! But most of all, thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Master Healer, who has been watching over dad!!! UPDATE: As of September 26, 2007, dad is progressing nicely. Please continue to pray that his blood counts return to safe levels.

Rosemary Addiego Roberts is my mom. She has been the "web-surfin' nanny", spending hours every day cruising cyberspace and sending many e-mails to us all! Mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer and went to be with the Lord on Thursday, August 21, 2003. We buried her 4 days later on her 64th birthday. Mom had confounded the doctors by remaining alive and alert - even with all the pain killers! They attributed it to her constitution (will to live). We will all miss her.Click here for her obituary.

Where is your biographical sketch? We'd love to add it right here! Just e-mail us with a note of introduction, and some juicy info, and you too will be helping Cannatella's around the world get to know who you are. Don't worry if you speak and write Italian better than English. I have no problem translating!
