We the family, will remember him most for being a Dad who always enjoyed his family and meant everything to him.
Our large community of friends and wonderful extended family will remember him best for his gift of music and being able to move hearts with his voice.
He began singing in church and then in school. He was then lead vocalist for the local band The Briel’s. Also during that time, he was called into the Army and there performed for the Officer‘s clubs. He then moved into conducting various choirs in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
His time spent at ShopRite in Greenwich, NJ, was probably one of the highlights of his career as he met the community and served them with his quick wit and ability to turn someone’s day around with a kind word.
He will also be remembered for standing his ground if he believed in something very strongly. He was loyal to a fault to those he held dear.
His rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” is his legacy and will never sound quite the same without shedding a tear.
A celebration of life service will be held at 2:00 on Saturday, August 8th at Calvary Baptist Church, 5300 Green Pond Road, Easton PA. 18045
