My Dearest Angelo. I'll love you for as long as I live....Angelo was a fine man in every sense of the word. He was forthright, honest, loving, caring. It's so terribly painful, your passing. Angelo's daughter, Carol, whom I communicated with and attended birthday parties for Angelo with, is a fine lady. Just like her father, she's loving, kind, caring, understanding. Angelo was a very rare individual, like a beautiful, rare jewel. My heart goes out to his two daughters, Carol and Lee-ann. He also had a daughter, Sharon who passed before her loving father. Three lovely girls. Angelo was firstly, my landlord. Secondly, my dearest friend. We were close friends for over two decades. So many ever so wonderful memories that I will cherish forever. Thank you, Angelo for making my life oh, so happy while the LORD allowed us to be close friends. RIP my dearest friend. I love you. XXXOOO

Carol, LeeAnn and Family,
I am sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad today. He was a great Father, Husband and Friend. I will always remember growing up on Hegner Court with all of you, and your dad always throwing us back the wiffle balls when we hit them over your fence. Your Dad treated us like his sons, and I will always be grateful for the things he did for South Hackensack, especially night gym, the basketball team and the goal posts at the park. May he rest in eternal peace until we all meet again!
