ANGELO MARIO DI FILIPPO
BOONTON NJ – Angelo Mario Di Filippo, age 91, passed away on February 7, 2019. He was a resident of Boonton for over 50 years. Born in Castelnuovo di Conza Italy on September 20, 1927, he immigrated to the United States in 1947. He resided in Newark, NJ until 1967 when he moved to Boonton.
He was employed by Heavy and General Laborers, Local 472, retiring in 1989. He served in many capacities with the Local including Shop Steward. In 2014, he was honored by the Local for his 60 years of service with the organization. He enjoyed working in his garden, cooking, repairing just about anything broken and above all, like his father before him, had a great passion for winemaking. He was a self taught accordion player. He was a huge Yankee fan, but never ask him about the Mets. He was a long-time member of the Boontonites. He traveled as often as he could to Italy to enjoy family, friends and “la dolce vita”.
He was predeceased by his wife Maria (Nina) Suppa, his parents, Vincenzo and Vitamaria Di Filippo and his sister Marie Sessa.
He is survived by his loving children Vita Di Filippo Thompson and her husband Alan of St. Augustine, FL, Vincent Di Filippo and his wife Rosemary of Parsippany, NJ and Frank Di Filippo and his wife Denise of Succasunna, NJ.
