Please accept my condolences. I have fond memories of Dr. Duccilli. He was always very kind to me when I was the area manager of his rental property at Amelia Island Plantation. He had so many stories to share about his life experiences. I’m sure that his family will miss him. Sincerely Judy
Dr. Harry Duccilli, Jr.
