Upon completing high school, Angelo joined the US Navy. He Served on the USS Savanna and USS Dwight D Eisenhower.

Angelo has been on the Board of Directors for Agawam Little League since 2019. He works to help make the league better for all, but primarily for children with disabilities. He is currently working on a challenger program; this will help those who are not able to play a regular game due to physical or other disabilities. Angelo has always wanted to do something that would leave an impact. He attends his children’s Veteran’s Day school events and has also done so for his nephews and nieces.
Angelo wanted to be part of The Friends organization after seeing the AgawamFriends.org website. “What a way to continue to remember our Vets from every era of conflict and their families.” Angelo would like to help promote what The Friends do through every community. Being bi-lingual, he can reach further into communities for sponsors, informing other communities about The Friends. Angelo would like to help continue the hard work The Friends have done and help to make improvements wherever needed.
Angelo is currently serving as a director for The Friends.
