Sam Famularo Retired produce seller


A Mass of Christian burial for Sam Famularo, a retired produce stand owner, will be offered at 10 a.m. today at Holy Family Roman Catholic Church, 9533 Liberty Road in Randallstown.

Mr. Famularo, who was 85 and lived on Polar Avenue in Lansdowne, died Saturday of heart failure at St. Agnes Hospital.

He retired 15 years ago after operating a produce stand that bore his name for 40 years, first at the Lafayette Market, then at the Lexington Market.

A native of Cefalu, Sicily, he came to Baltimore as a youth.

Mr. Famularo liked gardening and was an expert on raising fig trees. He also was a horse racing fan.

He is survived by his wife, the former, Rena Valenzia; four daughters, Sarah Stewart of Baltimore, Rose Hutchison of Lansdowne, Angelina Stracke Cassetta of Randallstown and Andrea Berryman of Orlando, Fla.; a son, Joseph Famularo of Baltimore; 18 grandchildren; and 21 great-grandchildren.
