He graduated from the CT School of Electronics and was the owner and founder of R&S Medical Communications. He was a very hard worker with a brilliant mind for business and electronics. Angelo was an avid Yankee fan; his love for baseball was passed to his children and grandchildren. Angelo spent many days and nights coaching and throwing the ball with his children and their neighborhood friends. He coached and managed many teams and never missed his children’s games. His passion for this sport at no time diminished, as he hardly ever missed a Yankee game on television. He even attended a game with his children a few years ago for Father’s Day. Angelo was the President of Milford JR Major League and Babe Ruth for many years along with many of his close friends. He helped name numerous fields in the town of Milford. He was a generous, loving father and grandfather (Poppy) with the biggest heart there is. He will be truly missed by so many.
