Mr. Capasso was a wonderful man. We have many wonderful memories , over the years : birthday celebrations , weddings and other ! We would also run into him often ; one time we were at Corner Grinder shop and he happened to be there , so we had him join us ... I think we were there for over 3 hours just talking : he would tell us stories of his life back in Italy , how he met his wife Rosa ..and how they started their life together . He missed her dearly , since her passing ❤️! He was proud of his children , grandchildren and their achievements and was also happy to be a great -grandfather ! He had a nice sense of humor .. R.I.P. Mr. Capasso ....You will be missed ! 🙏
