Vito Aiuto, age 78 of Warren, died Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at Crittenton Hospital in Rochester Hills, Michigan. Vito was born December 23, 1938 in Detroit to the late Paulo and the late Palma (nee: Pace) Aiuto.

Born and raised in Detroit, it wasn't long after finishing high school that Vito found himself wearing the "olive drabs" of our great U.S. Army having been called to serve our country amidst looming international tensions between 1959 and 1961. Though we were between conflicts at the time, it was people like Vito who stood in the fray on our behalf and were ready to act at a moment's notice to preserve the freedoms and liberties our soldiers have fought so hard to maintain. So it is, with thanks and praise from a grateful nation, that we pay homage to Vito for his service, his patriotism, and his willingness to stand in harm's way for us all. For his sacrifices made and his dutiful service, we honor Vito and extend our posthumous gratitude in recognition of his valiance and bravery.

Prior to his time in the military, (and actually harkening back to his high school days), it was at the age of 16 that Vito met the girl who would change his life,…he just wasn't aware of it at that juncture. Her name was Margaret and she was a young, 14 year old who was smitten as well with this new young gentleman that had happened along her path. The two lovebirds would ultimately embark upon a dating relationship that blossomed into love, and which led them to the altar of marriage. It was actually a year following his return from the Army that Vito & Margaret shared their vows and began their journey together as husband & wife. The newlyweds made their home in the burgeoning community of Warren where they built upon the comforts of home, raised their children, and grew deeper in love with each passing day.

For his career path, Vito joined the ranks of those who decided to play a part in the automotive history of Detroit when he accepted a position with the Ford Motor Company where he was employed for over 41 years. Extending the utmost in dedicated service, he finally accepted his well-deserved retirement and headed off into the next chapter in his life. Being one who possessed hard work ethics and the desire to stay busy, retirement lolligaggin' just wasn't his bag. So he managed to secure a couple other gigs,…one with Macomb County Community College as a set-up man, and the other as a driver for Advanced Auto Parts. But one of the jobs he was most proud of was that of "Handyman," the Fix-It Guy who could handle most any challenge that came his way. Whether plumbing, electrical, you name it,…everybody knew to call Vito if there was something to repair.

Another large chunk of Vito's life was wrapped up in his sports appreciation and the various ways he was involved in them. For years he enjoyed wearing the hat of Coach for both baseball and softball. Having played the sports in his youth, Vito was quite knowledgeable and was made with all the right stuff to mentor and train his young athletes to become champions. And not merely coaching sports, Vito loved following all the "Sports in the D" and was one of the biggest banner wavers of the Tigers, Pistons and Lions. Following the Lions was extra special as his brother was the team's band director. Sporting pastimes Vito enjoyed included bowling and golfing, both of which afforded him countless moments of fun and friendship. Whether in search of that magnanimous 300 Game, or that elusive Hole-in-One, Vito always accepted the challenges as he knew it came with a lot of entertainment and laughs.

Other highlights that called Vito's name included the summer vacations enjoyed up north in Oscoda. Anytime he was exchanging the concrete jungle for a bit of Michigan's "up north experience" was definitely a happy occasion. Then there were those delectable breakfasts at Big Boy's that called his name often. There was always something special about getting the day started right by eating some great food that somebody else had to cook and clean up. Just show up, fill up, then get up and leave. Woo-Hoo! And if you really wanted to see a happy man, just toss him some tootsie rolls or twizzlers and you had a friend for life. And the story of Vito just wouldn't be replete without mentioning the love he held for his cats. The love for an animal brings out our softer side, and Vito possessed a passion for his feline friends that often made his heart melt.

A loving husband, father and grandfather, Vito leaves behind a legacy of love that is sure to be embraced with each reflection shared. He touched a multitude of hearts and souls in his journey through life and leaves an impact on many through his care and compassion. He will be missed immensely and loved eternally.

Loving husband of Margaret Ann. Beloved father of Paul (Nancy), Pamela (John) Burnette and Brian. Dear brother of Frances Montana, Pauline Rozzisi, Mariann Stamm and the late Anthony "Nino", Treasured grandfather of Miranda (Joe), Candace, Giovanni, Leah, Daniel, Sarah, Dominic, Anna, Abigail and Josephine.
