Maurizio Valentino Iuretig, 59
SCARBOROUGH - Maurizio Valentino Iuretig, 59, died on Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017, at the Gosnell Memorial Hos-pice House, in Scarborough, after an 18-month battle with pancreatic cancer.
Born on Feb. 21, 1958, in the small village of Mersino, Italy, he was the son of Celio Iuretig and Alma Ierep. He attended local schools, graduated from high school, and went on to receive his certificate from the Associazione Italiana Sommeliers in Italy. He spent several years as a waiter and wine steward in both Italy and Switzerland, becoming fluent in multiple languages at the same time. In 1986, he moved to Bermuda to take a position as a waiter at a hotel, where he met his future wife, Julia Jubb Iuretig. After two and a half years of long distance dating, Bermuda to Maine, they married in York, Maine, on May 20, 1989. Settling in Scarborough, they had two children, Anthony Celio Iuretig, in 1993; and Peter James Iuretig, in 1995.
Maurizio worked in various positions in the retail clothing and food industries, and managed the restaurant at the White Barn Inn for five years. He eventually set his sights on the wine business, and in 2014 he finally landed his dream job as a wine salesman for Nappi Distributors. Although well-known for his extensive wine knowledge, Maurizio had talents in the kitchen that were equally impressive. Over the years he prepared hundreds of extraordinary dishes. His love for food and wine was only rivaled by his joy of being around family and friends. He will also be remembered for his kind and generous disposition, and gentlemanly manner.
Maurizio is survived by his wife, Julia; sons, Anthony and Peter; father, Celio; sister, Silvia Iuretig, and husband Giampaolo Tomasetig; brother, Vittorino Iuretig; brother, Antonino Iuretig, and wife Angela Sigura; sister, Vania Iuretig, and husband Massimo Renso; brother-in-law, James T. Jubb, and wife Margaret Jubb; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his mother, Alma; and his brother, Sandrino Iuretig.
The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at both New England Cancer Specialists and Gosnell Memorial Hospice House. Sincere thanks also to the countless family members and friends who continually offered their love and support over the past 18 months.
Visiting hours celebrating Maurizio's life will be held Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017, from noon-2 p.m., followed by a funeral service at 2 p.m. at the
Conroy-Tully Walker South Portland Chapel,
1024 Broadway, South Portland. To honor Maurizio's loyalty to the Patriots, the 1 p.m. game will be playing, muted, in a separate room.
