I have known Mr. Senitta and the Senitta family for almost 30 years. Mr. Senitta was a truly wonderful man. A terrific father to my best friend, Annette and her siblings Elaine and Michael. A loving husband to his amazing wife, Leona. He had a really great sense of humor. He was patient and kind and a friend to so many people. I have learned of his generosity of spirit through others that have known him. He was a very proud Veteran but more important a proud father, husband, brother and grandfather. His sense of family was of the greatest importance to him. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. But lucky are those of us that did know him.
