D’ANGELO, EDWARD Professor Edward D’Angelo of Hamden, CT, beloved husband of Margery Reynolds, passed away on June 3, 2014 with his family by his side. He was born December 30, 1932 in Brooklyn, NY, son of the late Salvatore D’Angelo and Mary (Parrino) D’Angelo. In addition to his wife of 26 years, he is survived by his stepdaughter Laurie Mentz Nichols (Christopher) of West Haven, CT, stepson Brian Mentz (Amy) of Jacksonville, VT, three adored granddaughters, Rio Mentz, and Savannah and Mackenzie Nichols. He is also survived by his sister Rosemary LaSala (Michael) of Fort Lauderdale, FL and Mount Sinai, NY, nephews Jerome Tarantola (Leslie) of San Clemente, CA, Salvatore Tarantola (Fabian) of New York, NY, and niece Sandra Ferrugia of Massapequa, NY. He also leaves grand-nephews and nieces Nichols Tarantola and Carly, Alexandra and Matthew Ferrugia. Professor D’Angelo received his BA from SUNY Oswego, his MA from New York University, and his PhD from SUNY Buffalo. Professor D’Angelo taught for 52 years, starting with general education in elementary school and then on to specialize in philosophy at SUNY Buffalo, the University of Missouri at Kansas City, the University of Bridgeport, the University of New Haven, and for the last 15 years of his career, Quinnipiac University, retiring at age 80. During his 52 years as an educator, he taught an estimated 10,000 students. His lively mind, engaging style and unorthodox sense of humor made him a favorite with both students and faculty. His most popular classes were, “The Philosophy of Sex and Love” and “Life and Life after Death”, which he taught for more than 20 years. His book, “The Loving Person”, which explored life, love, marriage, and relationships was written especially for these classes. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 21st at 1:00 p.m. at the North Haven Funeral Home located at 36 Washington Avenue, North Haven, CT. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made, in the Professor’s name, to Quinnipiac University Office of Development and Alumni Relations, 275 Mount Carmel Avenue, Hamden, CT 06518. www.northhavenfuneral.com
