My most sincere condolences to the family of Chick! Knew Chick and his brother when they lived next door to the market on Main St. I lived behind on S. Second St. Many, many years ago!
A life well lived, a tribute to Chick. He could not have been in better hands after he convinced Cheryl to marry him. They raised a loving and supporting family that was every growing. Chick is my longest memory of a friend. I think we were about 5 or 6 when our parents put us together. There may have been times the parents regretted us getting together but, we went on to created a life time of memories. You could not ask for a better friend. Chick was the same big hearted friend at 6 as he was at 60 and beyond. I am very grateful for being able to spend time with him. All my best to the family, thank you for sharing him with his Westside buddies.
I recall Chick from high school days @GJS as a cool dude. May he rest in peace; condolences & God’s speed to all his family!
I can still remember the first time that I prepared “CHICKS” taxes. My deepest Sympathy is for ALL the family.
Our DEEPEST SYMPATHIES to Chicks wife Cheryl & the complete family. I so remember Chick many years ago when he lived on Rooney Street. His mom Ann & my mother, Freda Consiglio, was best of friends. In fact Ann cut our cake on our wedding day. Chick was always a really nice guy! Always had a huge heart just like his mom. May the beautiful memories that you all shared with Chick be etched into your hearts forever. What a beautiful reunion I am sure he had when he seen his mom, dad & Jimmy again. Our thoughts & prayers are with you, Cheryl & the rest of your family.
