Morelli’s Ice Cream has announced that Guido Morelli passed away yesterday (Monday) at the age of 81, peacefully and surrounded by his family, following a period of illness.
Guido was very much at the helm of the Northern Ireland ice cream family business.
He worked tirelessly and came into the office every day, taking charge of developing new recipes. The business has created hundreds of ice cream flavours over the years under Guido’s guidance, with mint chocolate chip being his favourite.
Guido’s daughter Daniela Morelli said “Dad was a much-loved and loving husband, father, nonno, bis nonno and friend to all who knew him. He always had a smile on his face and brought so much joy to everyone at the company and our incredible customers. We will miss him but our wonderful memories will keep him alive in our hearts.”
