In Memoriam Aurelio Marcucci

Vice-President and President Emeritus of FAFICS


Dear Colleagues,


It is with great sadness that I announce the death in Rome on Sunday August 2 of our dear friend and colleague Mr. Aurelio Marcucci.


Aurelio was an esteemed colleague in FAO where he held highly responsible managerial positions in Human Resources and Social Security functions. He was a member of the UN Pension Board for many years and was very active in all layers of social security life in FAO.


As a retiree, Aurelio soon became a prominent figure in FFOA, the Rome based association, and a very active member of the Executive Committee. Aurelio was also a highly regarded figure in FAFICS and a great supporter of UN retirees’ interests. His role as FAFICS Vice-President and President Emeritus was highly recognized by members world-wide and we will never forget his unparalleled contribution to our work.


I am sure those who knew Aurelio well, will join me in presenting to his family the sense of our deepest sorrow and condolences.


Marco Breschi






Chers collègues,


C'est avec une grande tristesse que je vous annonce le décès à Rome, le dimanche 2 août, de notre cher ami et collègue M. Aurelio Marcucci.


Aurelio était un collègue estimé à la FAO où il a occupé des postes de direction à haute responsabilité dans les domaines des ressources humaines et de la sécurité sociale. Il a été membre du Comité des pensions des Nations unies pendant de nombreuses années et a été très actif dans toutes les couches de la vie de la sécurité sociale à la FAO.


En tant que retraité, Aurelio est rapidement devenu une figure éminente de la FFOA, l'association basée à Rome, et un membre très actif du Comité exécutif. Aurelio était également une figure très estimée de la FAAFI et un grand défenseur des intérêts des retraités des Nations unies. Son rôle de vice-président de la FAAFI était hautement reconnu par les membres du monde entier et nous n'oublierons jamais sa contribution inégalée à notre travail.


Je suis sûr que ceux qui ont bien connu Aurelio se joindront à moi pour présenter à sa famille le sentiment de notre plus profonde tristesse et nos condoléances.
