WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Angelo Palmiotto, a longtime White Plains resident and active member of the community, died in his home on Oct. 2. He was 77 years old.
Palmiotto was born in Giovinazzo, Italy on July 20, 1934 to the late Giuseppe and Serafina Palmiotto. He worked from a young age to provide for his family. At the age of 18, he decided to emigrate to the United States by way of Canada with his two brothers to provide for his family.
On Oct. 1, 1960, he married Marcella, with whom he raised three children. Palmiotto went on to work as a stone mason until his retirement.
An active member of the White Plains community, he could be found at the office of Al's Moving and Storage, owned by his wife and son-in-law, assisting with various errands, purchasing food - and the occasional lottery ticket - from the local Italian shop. He also enjoyed spending time with friends at the Italian-American club or savoring a home-cooked meal with his family.
Palmiotto is survived by his son Joseph Palmiotto with wife Denise, his daughters Sandra Fanelli with husband Al and Marie Bottiglieri with husband Tom, his brothers Domenick Palmiotto of Center Reach, N.Y. and Frank Palmiotto with Assunta of White Plains, his sister Giovanna of Milan, Italy, and his eight grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife in 1996, as well as two brothers and a sister from Italy.
Friends and family may visit from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Ballard-Durand Funeral Home in White Plains. The funeral mass will take place at 10 a.m. Thursday at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in White Plains with interment to follow at Mount Calvary Cemetery.
