Angelo Albert Annecchino, affectionately known as, “Poppie,” lived a full and beautiful life. He was a gentle and loving man, hardworking, determined, loyal, creative, and incredibly witty. He loved fine wines and a good martini.
Angelo was born on June 28th, 1934 in Union City, N.J. and was the youngest of 7 children. He graduated from Union City High School in 1952 and enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1957. Ange served in the Korean War and was a member of the N.J. National Guard’s 161st Military Police Battalion.
In 1965, he began a long career as the proprietor of Village Exxon in Ridgewood, NJ. He spent 12 years with Creamer Construction and 10 years with Rudy’s Inflight Catering before officially retiring at the age of 82. Over the course of his life he traveled to 41 countries and set foot on every continent except Antartica, where he always wanted to see the penguins.
Ange had exceptional long term memory and would entertain his family and grandchildren with tales about his Italian heritage, newspaper route and escapades as a young teenage boy. His stories about fishing, boating, making wine in his garage, and the many, many places he traveled made us all laugh and smile.
Ange had many talents and was a craftsman like no other. Working with his hands gave him a great sense of pride and satisfaction. His favorite place was his workshop where he spent countless hours measuring, planing, sawing, and sanding pieces of wood until they became something beautiful. There was nothing he couldn’t build, fix, or create. He often said, “I can fix anything except a broken heart.”
Ange shared 25 years of marriage with his wife Grace and raised 4 children, Beth-Ann, Jeff, Glenn and Donna. After Grace passed away in 1987, Ange found love again with his beloved wife Gloria and her 4 children, Nick, Dana, Laura and Brian. They were blessed with 33 years of life together and enjoyed traveling, “team” projects, five-o’clock cocktail hour, and most importantly spending time with family and friends. Their family grew even further with daughters-in-law Karin, Fran, and Monica and sons-in-law Dennis, Glenn and John. Together they shared the love and life of 24 grandchildren, Brie-Ann, Tara, Jennifer, Carolynne, Margaret, Bryan, Kyle, Kaitlyn, Graceann, Colette, Gillian, Lukas, Nicholas, Matthew, Annalise, Conor, Brian, Nolan, Collin, Kevin, Brenan, Mara, Noah and Elliot, and 5 great grandchildren, William, James, Stephen, Aria and Oliver.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday from 4- 8 PM at Van Emburgh-Sneider-Pernice Funeral Home, 109 Darlington Ave, Ramsey, NJ.
