Throughout his life, Mr. Puritano enjoyed traveling. He spent much time traveling throughout Europe, on his own, with friends or family. One memorable trip was to Calabria, Italy, during which he and his family traced his grandparents´ birthplace. He was quite moved to have stood in the home where his grandmother was born.

Survivors include his wife, Karen P. Puritano; his parents, Vincent and Margaret Ann Puritano of Annandale; a grandfather, Andrew Bender of Frackville, Pa.; and a brother, Charles A. Puritano of Fairfax Station.
