I will always remember Uncle Chipper as a man that gave his heart n soul to his family and friends..
The words generous and loving come to mind when I think of childhood memories with he and his beautiful family.
My deepest sympathy

O, such passing, of a deity, so sanctified and blessed;
Has had our city of brotherly love, to lament this day;
A man, who had created a blissful array of raviolis best;
And of all other assorted pastas that have such quality taste;

He, Joseph Talutto, the fella I admired the most;
Has inspired our lifestyles with many a talent based on flavor;
Moreover, He and I had attended parties we each other host;
We, as an alliance, had also done each other's favors;

Anon, willst thou, almighty pasta jarl, join the Heavens with the Lord;
And thou, along with many another person passed above;
Willst be ever, in my woe-laden heart, stored;
And knowst you have shown us unrelenting love;

Alas, idol of Philadelphia's artisan pasta, messiah of our cooking, and inspirational one;
Your eternal voyage to the gates of God has just begun!

First the shock, then the sadness to know we will not be seeing Chipper's welcoming smile again. We all grew up together in Southwest Philly and I can remember Carmella and Chipper's wonderful love for each other. We all thought they were velcroed together and I know it's going to be a rough time for my friend Carmella who was so loyal and loving to him. And of course, their children. Please accept my sorrow for your loss and may God give you strength to face this life without his presence. He will be missed.

We are still in disbelief that Chip is gone. We came to say goodbye to him yesterday but it was totally unreal. The number of people who came to pay their respects to him and to his family is such a testament to the person that he was....a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend, those are just the titles we are familiar with. We were friends when we were all so young and our children were they are all adults with families of their own. So happy to say that Chip and Carmella are the kind of rare friends that you could go even years without seeing and then just pick right up like you never missed a day. We had a lot of fun over the years, and thats a lot of memories - all wonderful! Was cleaning out a home office this week after hearing of Chip's passing and found one old photo album that somehow missed getting put in the container which had already been moved....I opened it to see what it was and right there were pictures of a mystery weekend we attended together in January of 1987! I laughed and cried at those pictures. Will keep sending out love to Chip's beautiful family....I'm sure they have the very best memories of him. Love to all of you Carmella and family

Mr Talluto was a dear friend of my parents Marie and Anthony Cerone. I had the pleasure of spending some weekends at the shore with he and Carmella when they came to visit. He was a very generous fun loving man and he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers to all of his family.

Going to miss this true Gentleman. For a short time had some beautiful memories I will always treasure. Along with most recently showing me around the pasta factory. Grazie for your inspiration Mr. Talluto. ❤ Keeping Famiglia Talluto in our prayers. The Russo's

To the entire Talluto family,
Our deepest sympathy is with each and every one of you as this news has left us heartbroken. Chip and I have been friends for over 40 years. He has always been the influencer and connector of all of our friends and business associates throughout the years. We have traveled to Italy together and the Tallutos have been our extended family for years and Chipper has always been the driving force behind so many for so long. We pray his memories will give us strength through this difficult time. We Love You All forever.

I was so sorry to hear this sad news. Although I had never personally met Mr. Talluto, my father had often told me stories of what a wonderful guy he was. Both of my parents, and also my nephew, who had often traveled with my father to Norristown, always spoke so highly of him. He will be missed. I pray that the loving memories he leaves behind will give you all strength at this difficult time.

Mr. Talluto's loss has left me heartbroken. He was so kind and good to me. The void that is being felt by his family, is so unimaginable. The last time I saw him, at his food company TAIF, was about a year ago...and he was going home for the day, and I watched as he gave a kiss to his adult children, before leaving. And I thought to myself, how loving a family man, to still kiss his children, a kiss goodbye, even though he would see them the next day at work. That gave me a glimpse of the man, father, husband, grandfather, sibling, and son, Joseph A.M. Chip Talluto was, and I had the honor to know him briefly. My prayers include my requests for comfort and strength for his family.
