Loving father to Vincent Louis (Clare), Susan Joy, Roberta Ann Cerasi (Luciano) and Michele Joli Jansch (Russell). Doting grandfather of Gabriella, Annette, Natalie, Christina, Alexander, Cassie, Paul, PJ, Rodrigo and Lee. Beloved uncle to many. Dad was a proud Army veteran, serving as a Sergeant in the 3rd Cavalry in the European Theatre during WWII. After the war, he returned to City College, graduating in 1948 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He subsequently received his license as a Professional Engineer. Most of his professional career was spent at Elm Coated Fabrics where he was a pioneer in the field of extruded plastic film production. He formed many deep and lasting personal and professional relationships there and to the end reflected fondly on his work at "The Pant". While in college, Dad joined an Italian-American fraternity. Alpha Phi Delta, and the brothers and their families have been a continuing presence in Dad's and our lives. From conventions to picnics to weddings and now, funerals, APD was never far from his thoughts. Dad took great pride in the accomplishments of all of his children and grandchildren, offering support and encouragement when necessary, congratulations when called for, advice and guidance always. He was and will remain our rock. He taught us the meaning and value of family and we will celebrate his memory.
