This news hit very hard. My beloved late husband, Tom Cole, and Ange were true buddies at Xerox.

Ange was bigger than life and a truly kind man who thought the world of Tom and visa versa. The two of them were partners in pranks, lunch buddies, smart and smarty and just plain good men.  Each one had profound respect for the other. Our children loved to hear Ange stories from Tom and from Angelo himself.

Ange and Tom are way too young and way too fine to be gone so soon.  All I can say is they are likely having some great conversations “on the other side” and laughing at corporate short sightedness and a host of other things of that nature.

Ange . . . tears flow as I think of you and Tom. You will always be missed and remembered with a smile.

Condolences to the family and all close friends.  He left a legacy of stories and events in a way only Ange could tell and endeared himself to many . . .  me included. It is with sadness and fond memories that I write. He will be missed.

A note to our friend Angelo-we know you’ve left this world much too early your life was just being. Just wanted to say thanks for being such a great neighbor-we always appreciated all the times we spent together over a beer or two you always had good stories. Things on the “Hill” will never be the same you had become our constant and faithful friend always there if needed but never a bother. We’ remember the Yankee, Giants or Syracuse games, the television loud and you yelling like a coach at his team-don’t think they ever listened thou. It’s time to say “SEE YA” till we meet again in a better place hope the fishing is good I’m sure there’s a spot for special friends like you. To Angelo’s family our deepest condolences and prayers Angelo will be greatly missed he was truly a special person.

I am sorry for your loss. I had the opportunity to work with “Ange” when we worked at Xerox. He was a hard working individual with a “can-do” attitude who was very passionate about the business. Whenever I saw him, he’d always tell me about one of his funny life experiences, he had so many funny stories! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.  He will be missed.

I first met Ange at Xerox and have been friends for over 40 years.  Ange was a big practical joker and I’ll always have fond memories of some of the pranks we pulled on one another and on others.  We bowled on the same team for many years in Sodus and passed many hours just sitting on his boat drinking a cold beer.  Since he moved to near Utica, we still kept on touch via phone and email.  I have hundreds of funny stories that I will always cherish.  God speed Angelo.

First meet Ange at Xerox. What a relationship. Argue and fight all day and go out drinking as best buddies to the wee hours of the night. He was my youngest sons Godfather. A co worker, confident and best friend for the past 35 years. My prayers are with you and for Ange. I can not express the sorrow I am feeling and can only take comfort in the fact that he is with Our Lord. Se ya Ange.

I will always remember my first at work 37 years ago, as someone would take steal the gum out of my desk each day and leave a note “Buy more gum or else!”, of course it was Ange.  Ange was a great help when I first started at Xerox and throughout the years always helped to put a smile on everyone’s face.  I can’t believe you aren’t with us anymore, we will miss you.

Condolences to Ange’s family.  From the very first when I met Ange in the late ‘90’s I immediately liked him.  While he was tough and judgmental in the most appropriate professional way, Ange called it like it is and knew exactly what questions to ask.  He also listened and learned, which is a big part of why he was so tough and effective, yet he was still fun and amiable, rational and reasonable.  Not being a real tall person, I found it hilarious when he would tell me to stand up (when I was already standing) in meetings so people could see me.  Ange is one of the “old school” good guys that are so few and far between in our culture and company these days.  He is gone way too soon and he will be sorely missed.  Ange had a huge positive impact on more people than any of us will ever know.  See ya…...when I get there too.

I worked with Ange for many years at Xerox and I have such fond memories of all the laughs we shared. Although we lost touch after his retirement, I thought of him often and am so shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. May he rest in eternal peace.

Growing up across the street from Ange we were together constantly.  He was a friend and a protector.  Even though he was younger, he took pride in protecting us girls when he needed to. My dear Angelo, it doesn’t seem possible that you are gone.  I am glad I was able to see you one last time just a few weeks ago. I love you and I miss you already.  My prayers are with you and with your family.

I remember first meeting Ange in 1998. He was the comptroller for LCMG in Utica. He was quick witted had a friendly personality and was very supportive.. We quickly became friends. When he moved back to Webster Ange, Tom Cole and I would go to lunch often for 10+ years we spent time together fishing or just hanging out. Ange was a unique individual his personality was truly something to admire. No matter how difficult times where he always had a way of making it tolerable. He was hard working and very dedicated Xerox employee. I owe him and Tom both for my in depth knowledge of operations finance. Tools I use nearly every day.. When he retired and he moved back to Utica I was concerned that I would never hear from him. Boy, was I wrong we would talk often on the phone with his classic starter “Whatsss Up” and of course the last two words were always “see ya”.. This world has truly lost a great person. I am finding it very difficult to understand why he left us so soon. I guess we are not to understand that’s what our faith tells us… Angelo I will miss you every day until we meet again…

Ange was my “pain in the butt” financial representative many, many, many years ago at Xerox.  He would come and tell me every month that I was spending too much money, my productivity was down, overtime was over budget, people were leaving early, not everyone was wearing safety glasses so therefore I wasn’t putting safety first, blah, blah, blah.  I couldn’t wait until our hour together was up! never once did he raise his voice!  Then he would get up to leave, shake my hand, smile and told me we were doing a good job! After he left, I would close the door and say Damn, he was right again!  A great, caring, hard working, fun person to have as a friend and co worker.  You will be in my prayers forever.

Ange was a coworker of mine for 25 years.  He was a fun guy to work with for both his humor and his ability to get the job done.  He had great success at Xerox, but he was not appreciated fully for his skills.  He was the best cost accountant I have seen at Xerox in my 3 decades.  I am truly sorry that he has passed.  My prayers are with him and his family.

My Dear, Dear Cousin Angelo.  So many memories come flooding back.  We were soooo very close growing up - seemed like we were always together, either at your house our mine.  I remember all the mischief we got into & all the good times.

Playing in your parents’ garden when we weren’t supposed to, going through the garden to get to Aunt Betty & Uncle Ralph’s, playing in the railyard & shortcutting there between our homes, painting hairbrushes? (you always reminded me of that even though I didn’t remember) & oh so many, many more.  All of them good.  Alicia still remembers the time we went out on boat when you lived in Sodus.  It so sad how quickly time passes & how people lose touch over the years.
You’ll always be in my heart - May you Rest In Peace Dear Cousin

From the beginning I had a special relationship with Angelo.  He loved to pick on me both by himself and with others ganging up on me.  He and his dad Sam and his brother Rocco, pulled a good joke on me about rabbit hunting. A prank that stayed private until his dad’s death.  I will miss him very much.  One very special nephew.  It was a special blessing we were altogether only one week ago.

I first met Ange as an employee @ Xerox. Over the years we became good friends. Fishing & our Sportcraft boats helped develop this friendship. It’s hard to imagine his passing. It wasn’t that long ago that him, Tom Cole & I had lunch at the Lakeside Resturant, now they are both gone. He is and will be greatly missed. May God bless him, until we meet again.
