Angelo worked at American Insulated Wire for over 25 years, and also worked at the Providence Civic Center, was a teacher, and entrepreneur. Angelo was a communicant at St. Rocco Church in Johnston and participated for four decades carrying the saint in the church’s yearly procession. Devoted to his family, and proud of his sons’ many accomplishments, Angelo also enjoyed homemade food, films, sports and traveling, recently taking a trip to Paris with his wife to celebrate their 40th anniversary.
