John F. D’Angelo
July 30, 1924 – May 17, 2020
John F. D’Angelo passed away peacefully on May 17, 2020, at the age of 95.
“Papa” leaves behind sons John “Anthony” and Michael D’Angelo, granddaughter Shanon Cooling (Ryan), great grandchildren Madysn, Jacob, and Hailey, step-children Scott Ball (Mia) and Stephanie Hankins (Kevin), and step-grandchildren Ciera, Blaine, Bailey, Toni, and Jake.
Papa was preceded in death by parents Antonio and Joanna, sisters Inez, Mary, and Josie, and his wife of 41 years, Susan D’Angelo.
Papa served his country proudly during World War II as a gunner on a B-26 Marauder in support of General Patton’s push into Germany. He engaged in 25 missions over France as the youngest member of his crew. One of his favorite memories was being able to participate in an Honor Flight to Washington D.C. with son Anthony, also a US war veteran.
Papa will be remembered for his pasta and other Italian dishes, card playing with friends and family, and hosting fun events for all. He was always good humored, loving, and attentive.
In lieu of flowers, donations made be made to the Wounded Warriors Project.
