- About Us
Brilliant, blessed and beloved, Hugo Tagli, 75, of Kildeer, IL and Marco Island, FL, is now at rest.
Known as the hard-working Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois employee who rose from the computer room to become Chief Legal Counsel, Hugo will be best remembered as the adoring husband, generous father and doting Papa of his large and loving family.
His ambition in the workplace was only matched by his enthusiasm for golf, White Sox baseball and gardening. He had a knack for home renovations, for which he was entirely untrained but somehow superbly capable. He was a gracious host who opened his heart and home to his wonderful family and friends, with typical Italian hospitality.
Larger than life, Hugo was charming, funny, and unforgettable. But the sun in his world was his wife, Rose Mary around whom the stars were set. As a couple, they were inseparable and enchanted with each other for over 50 years. In his last days, Hugo was surrounded by his family who spent their time whispering their gratitude into his ear until he passed on in his sleep. His loving legacy, however, will remain alive for generations.
Hugo is survived by his beloved wife Rose Mary (Lanzarotta). He was the proud father of three daughters, Lauretta (Julie), Lisa (Ric) and Lynnette (Paul); and grandfather of eight adoring grandchildren, Amanda, Julia, Joey, Charlie, Molly, Sophie, Will and Talia. He was preceded in death by his parents, Hugo Sr. and Ada; and his brother, Valentino.
