1943: A store is born…
Rewind back to a time when everyone in Huntington knew one another by name.
My father, Mario Libutti, wanted to become a contractor. One day, while tending to a few small repairs on his mother’s home, he fell from the roof, two stories to the ground.
Mario’s back was broken in several places. He had a long road to recovery ahead of him.
At the time, my father was dating my mother Rose. She came from a strict, old Italian household. My grandmother insisted that Mario could not marry Rose as he would never be able to support her. As a result of his accident, my father had to abandon his dream of being a contractor and find a job where he could sit. He began repairing watches in his mother’s kitchen. He became excellent at his skill and eventually opened Libutti Jewelers in town. The store prospered.
Celebrating One of Our Own
People often inquire about Lieutenant General Frank Libutti (Ret.) for whom one of our local streets was renamed.
Frank went to St. Anthony’s High and later graduated from The Citadel before going on to become a highly decorated Vietnam war veteran having received the Silver Star, the Purple Heart and later the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation
Medals among many others. Frank was the youngest Marine in history to achieve the rank of General and at the time of his retirement as Lieutenant General in 2001, was the Commander, U.S. Marine Corps Forces/ Pacific / Commanding General, Fleet Marine Force which basically put every active Marine to the West of the Mississippi under his command.
After his retirement, Frank became the first New York City Counterterrorism Commissioner before later being tapped by President Bush to become the Under Secretary for Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection for the newly formed Department of Homeland Security under Director Tom Ridge.
