He was born in Brooklyn, NY to Elizabeth and P.L.

He was a loving brother, husband, father, uncle and grandfather as well as being loyal and dedicated to many lifelong friends.  He loved nothing more than having a conversation with people from all walks of life.  He was always quick to laugh, enjoyed a good joke, and loved animals.
