7 Condolences for Angelo H. Iossa, Jr.

  • To the entire Iossa family and all that loved Angelo, I send my deepest sympathies and prayers that you will be sustained through the difficult days ahead. To Rosemary, your dedication to your parent’s care is remarkable.
    I have some nice memories of Uncle Angelo from family reunions we had decades ago. I specifically remember one in which the part of the family in Avondale, PA loaded up in a van and came to Madison for the reunion. My mother won a beautiful clock in a raffle that was made by Angelo. It remains here to this day.
    May he rest in eternal peace and be reunited with his loved ones who have passed.
    With Sincere Sympathy,

    Christopher Carozzo, son of the late Donna Ann Pratola and Grandson of the late Fred and Angeline Pratola, Sr.
