Condolence & Memory Journal

Though I never met Angelo I do wish I did. I only take one vacation a year and I always go to my favorite place, Elliotsville township to visit Onawa Lake. The father of a close friend of mine was born in Elliotsville. My friends grandfather was a conductor on the Canadian Pacific railroad and ran the Onawa post office and store. They lived in the house which still stands behind long gone Onawa post office and general store. So it is a special place we enjoy going every year to walk out to the trestle,hike borestone and take a boat ride and try my hand at fishing Onawa lake. Even though I never catch anything in that lake it still holds a special place in my heart. I know why Angelo loved that place so much. Who would have thought I lived in the same town as someone who shared the same love for Onawa. I would have loved to have shared stories with Angelo. It sounds like he was a great person who lived life to the fullest. Even though I never met him. I will think of him every time I go to Onawa. I am so sorry to hear of your loss but I am glad I now know him. Take care.

Dear Beverly,
My deepest sympathy to you and your family on Angelo's passing. I was fortunate to work with him in the early eighties at the old Middlesex-Essex GMF. He was great mentor,a clear thinker who easily identified problems and solved them. A lot of very fond memories. Have you all in my thoughts and prayers.

I will always cherish the memories of our visits at the lodge, picking fiddleheads and just enjoying his company. Such a wonderful friend who will always hold a place in my heart. I remember Angelo called me out of the blue once, when I was going through a difficult time, just to see if I was ok, giving me advice and just talking to me.That's the kind of friend he was. My best memory, was the day we were picking fiddleheads, and the little dam let go. We had to cross over a roaring stream to get safely back to the truck.. kinda scary at first, but we talked and laughed about that day for years. Keeping Bev and family in my thoughts during this time.

Bev and family, my sympathy goes out to all of you on the loss of a wonderful, caring, generous man. I will never forget how we met in Walmart at the photo computers and how frustrated I was and how he helped me. This was the start of a friendship that was very special to me. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Angelo did so much for his beloved Onawa community - from Ice Cream Socials at the OCA, to ATV rides for the kids, to annually providing a large pot of the most wonderful fiddlehead-pasta dish to feed a group of us who make quilts for the Mayo Hospital each summer. His smile and demeanor will be missed by the many people that he touched. May he rest in peace in God's hand. And may Bev and all his family know comfort and faith at this time and rejoice in the blessings of their lives as they also mourn this loss.

I met Angelo through his "Fiddlehead" page, and then in person at the seaplane fly-in up at Moosehead Lake. When we discovered we were both "Maine Transplants" from Massachusetts, a fast friendship formed. Although I did not know him for very long, I knew him well enough to see what a wonderful, genuine person he was. I am so very sorry that I never got the chance to visit him at his "Wildlife Lodge". My sincerest condolences to Beverly, and all of his family and friends. Angelo, you will be missed more than you could ever know. Rest in peace my friend.

Bev & family: My sincere sympathy is extended to you in the loss of Angelo. He was a dear friend over the years, the life of the party, loving, kind, and generous. In his prime of life, we had some unforgettable good times at camp and throughout the hunting seasons. He has earned his angel wings. May he rest in peace.

For the whole family. I am deeply saddened and sorry for your loss. I was truly grateful to know your husband, brother and Dad as a kid and an adult. One thing I learned from Angelo was that hard work payed off with something fun to do after! I will always cherish those great memories and will miss talking to him. Love, Carolyn
