Angelo was a devout servant of Jehovah. He was baptized as one of Jehovah’s
Witnesses on July 9th, 2016 in Romeoville IL. Later he graduated from Portage Highschool in
June of 2018. After he turned 21 he discovered that he had a love for “the history of all things
whiskey” and making mixed drinks. Eventually, In 2021 he obtained his mixologist license and
shared this love with those around him, often teaching family and friends all there was to know
about what he mixed in their cups. After this in 2022 he began studying at Ivy Tech University
with the goal of obtaining an electrical license.
Angelo was a talented musician. At an early age he, like the men in his family before
him, took a keen interest in music. In addition to enjoying good tunes he eventually learned to
play the viola, guitar, and the piano. Creating music was his outlet and therapy. Additionally,
throughout his school years he was a cast member in numerous school plays and performed in
talent shows constantly. That boy could sing!
Angelo was a genuine man. Not a single day passed without him warmly embracing
someone with a hug. He had concern for the person he was speaking to and this endearing
quality made him a great example of putting others before himself. Angelo was a considerate
brother, a thoughtful son, and loyal friend.
