My condolences to his family . I worked at D'Angelo in South Attleboro for almost 20 years and had the pleasure of his company for lunch on a regular basis. What a genuine, happy person, that we looked forward to seeing as he always had a story or something to share to put a smile on our faces. I also got see to see him when I needed supplies for my home projects! I am so sorry to hear of his passing . My thoughts and prayers go out to you .
