Our father was a loving husband, father, grandfather and complete family man. His life was the perfect example of selflessness and sacrifice all so that his family could have more opportunity. Foregoing the comforts of his homeland he endured the trials and tribulations of First Generation Americans. An engineer by trait he understood the value of wisdom and correctness. Often he was the man that was consulted as any true patriarchal figure would have. His actions and gestures showed how much he protected, cherished and relentlessly thought about his family. Our father embodied timeless successful traits that have been passed onto Three Children and Four Grand Children.The biggest success of his life was 51 years of marriage to his loving wife and our mom (Rosabella) that was able to make his dream of raising a successful family come true. As he transitioned from this world the literal expression that was on his face was a peaceful smile.
