He was instrumental in helping in the immigration of his brother-in-law Paolo & his wife &(4) young children in 1966. His support for the family continued until he moved to Florida in the mid 70's where he lived & worked for Tampa International Airport until he moved back in 2013 after the passing of his beloved wife Domenica whom he adored. He loved working on his cars, a Chevy Nova or his Ford LTD's. He loved traveling with his wife & enjoyed his boat for many years, he even towed it all the way to Florida when he moved. He had the knack to make conversation with total strangers. One of his favorite things to do over the last few years was to sit and have a cup of coffee at Shop Rite in Lyndhurst where he became friends with almost everyone that worked there.
