Born on April 19, 1923, in Peekskill, NY, Angelo was the son of Guerino and Gracia Maria (Cubitoso) Carbone. A decorated Army veteran of World War II, Angelo's first action - at age 21- was D-Day, the historic invasion of Normandy. He also fought in campaigns throughout Central Europe, Northern France, European Africa, and Germany. Not one to talk much about the battles, he enjoyed sharing stories about starting on his battalion's baseball team that defeated teams featuring current and future major league players who were in the service at that time. Angelo was employed by the A&P supermarkets for 45 years. An outstanding athlete in multiple sports, he enjoyed following the New York Yankees, as well placing wagers at racing facilities throughout the country. His love for his family -and his family's love for him - knows no bounds.
