Another great sportsman is gone forever. Marco Zenobi, originally from Rome, lived with his wife and their two daughters in Agugliano. At the age of 56 he surrendered to an incurable disease he fought for over a year, putting all his strength into it, until his heart allowed it.
“Unfortunately, on Tuesday – commented saddened by the Old Rugby Jesi – Marco Zenobi left us. Another piece of history of Jesi rugby goes away. Rest in peace Marco”.
To give the tragic news, from the world of rugby in Jesi was Gianni Filonzi who wanted to remember the figure and its importance. Marco Zenobi, a great sportsman and for many years in the field with the Jesi rugby team and before that with Mazzarini rugby, was well known and respected in Agugliano but also in Jesi. To remember him moved are the companions of the oval ball but also the colleagues. Marco Zenobi, a native of the capital, worked for the well-known company Campari but was a teetotaler for this reason he was the subject of jokes and jokes that he never shied away from as gifted as he was with a great self-deprecating spirit. “Marco was gifted with great humanity and irony” remember his closest friends, saddened by his untimely death.
“He will miss him a lot, Marco was a great friend as well as a sportsman. A piece of rugby in Jesi who unfortunately leaves us” adds his friend and former teammate Stefano Bezzeccheri from Jesi.
Marco Zenobi leaves his wife Silvia and two daughters Martina and Agnese in pain who have been close to him until the end and around whom many are gathering. At the last farewell today in Ancona there will be among others the world of rugby jesino, the Old Rugby ’70 team and all those who loved Zenobi.
For those wishing to give him a final farewell, the funeral will be held this morning at 10.30 at the church of Cristo Divino Lavoratore, in piazzale Camerino in Ancona, according to the anti Covid regulations in force.
“Marco was a great person – comments a friend from social networks moved – a great friend. We lived wonderful moments. Marco was a great gladiator, always fighting. Making a barbecue I remember a rainy August 15th in his garden, it was just laughter when we were together. He gave the name to our little dog ‘Roma’. As soon as our families meet – he concludes – we will toast in your honor, as you probably would have liked “.
