Art DiRienzo plays guitar

My late father-in-law, Art DiRienzo, died on January 25, 2015 at the age of 91. Until the last few weeks of his life, Dad was very healthy and always industrious. He loved to play guitar and did so for over seven decades.  Art played in bands, taught many children how to play, and during his last years he entertained folks at parties and in nursing homes. The video here was recorded on November 21, 2004 when Art was 81. Dad was always talkative, smiling and laughing, however he is a bit somber in the video as it was only six months after his wife (my mother-in-law) Janet died. Nevertheless, even at an advanced age, and after a few years of not playing very much, he still was a great guitarist. We miss him very much. Read my memory of Art in the "In Memoriam" section of this website. copyright: Marc Catone, 2015
