Angelo met the love of his life, Tina, in 2011. He gained 2 “bonus” sons, Enrique (Ricky) and
Anthony. Later, Angelo and Tina welcomed Angelo, Jr and their only daughter, Jocelyn.
Angelo was a gentle “giant.” As his Step-Father Chris would say, “Angelo, because he is an
angel, and the “O” because it’s his halo.” He had a heart of gold and definitely touched many
hearts. He was the type of man that would give the shirt off his back, even if it was all he had.
He was a hard working family man. He did security work for a couple of years for CIB Security
before transitioning to Old Dominion.
Angelo loved BBQ’s, camping, fishing, teaching his boys to work on cars. He loved spending
time with his family. He loved picking on his siblings. He always had jokes and humor. He loved
listening to music and going to concerts. He was a die hard Denver Broncos fan. He also loved
hanging out with his best friends, Andrew and Tom, whom he considered his brothers. He loved
talking about work with them. He was a friend to anyone and everyone that crossed his path.

“As I sit in heaven and watch you everyday, I try to let you know with signs that I never went
away. I hear you when you’re laughing and watch you as you sleep. I even place my arms
around you to calm you as you weep. I see you wish the days away begging to have me home,
so I try to send you signs so you know you’re not alone. Don’t feel guilty that you have life that
was denied to me. Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see. So live your life, laugh again,
enjoy yourself and be free. Then I know with every breath you take, you’ll be taking one for me.”
