He was my goomba, paisano. Loved all the dinners and parties we enjoyed together. Loved all our trips to the Immokalee farmers market where he would always buy a case of Roma tomatoes for the many batches of pasta sauce he would make. He was a great cook. I’m sure he could hav been a chef. Why so many batches you ask. Because he and Sally had many wonderful dinner parties. I was blessed to be invited to many of them . The trivot and bird house he made for me and Beth which we displayed in our home will be treasured and put away among our important rememberences. He was a great guy and although I will miss him I will never forget him. All who knew and loved him are feeling cheated now. Gone way to soon and remembered always. Rest In Peace my friend. I was blessed to know you, Dennis
