Angelo J. DeCarlo was 91 years old when he passed away Thursday, February 6, 2020. Born in Jersey City, Angelo was a longtime resident of New Milford. He proudly served in the United States Navy, despite never seeing combat, he loved the experience. Angelo went on to become a pipefitter with Pipefitters Local 274 for over 35 years before retiring. He was retired, but never tired of being there for anyone who needed help. Angelo fixed things without following directions because he just knew it was going to work. Additionally, he loved to be present at functions and events, whether it was a birthday, wedding, ballgame or school concert. Angelo enjoyed life and overcame adversity through undying support and love from his wife Frances. He adored his grandchildren and great-grandchildren immensely, but he loved his wife of 68 years more than anything else. They were inseparable and set an example of what love truly is. He was so proud of his boys, and they of him. He instilled pride in being a DeCarlo, and carried the family legacy with honor.
