‘Huge’ vehicle seller Billy Fuccillo dies at 64

ALBANY — Billy Fuccillo, an automobile supplier popular throughout the Money Area and somewhere else for Tv set advertisements that boasted of “enormous” price savings — a term drawn out into several syllables by the businessman as “yuuuuuuge-jahhh” — died Thursday at age 65, according to his longtime lawyer, Robert Scalione.

Fuccillo had been in declining overall health for an prolonged period of time. His Fuccillo Automotive Team, based in Syracuse, is the greatest privately owned dealership in the state, and has destinations across upstate New York and in Florida.
