Guglielmi, Bently (Taylor)

Bently Guglielmi ’06 writes: “My little sister, Jacqueline Taylor ’12, just graduated from SCU, along with my sister-in-law Gina Guglielmi ’12 and my first cousin Stephanie Carmassi ’12. This was a special graduation because we are the fifth generation to attend this fine university, yes fifth. It dates back to Adolph Gericke ’89, followed by Emile Maloney ’26 and his brother Harold Maloney ’24. Emile’s son and my uncle, Richard Maloney ’52, is our grandmother’s (Sheila Carmassi’s) brother. Sheila married Herm Carmassi, from the dynamic class of ’56, and their son Steve Carmassi ’84 is Stephanie’s father. I even attended his graduation in the Mission Garden back in the day. To go a step further, my husband, Tony Guglielmi ’06, and I were married by Father Tony Sauer ’56, good friend and classmate of Herm Carmassi. Fr. Sauer also baptized a future bronco: Giuliana. We took a photo at the picnic, which I hope to find, of three of the five generations who recently attended this warm ceremony last Saturday. They included my grandfather Herm, his son Steve, his daughter Stephanie, my brother Ryan Taylor ’10, my sister Jacqueline, my husband Tony, and his sister Gina. We are so proud to be a part of this fine institution. Let the tradition continue.”
