  1. To the entire Anrico clan (near and far):
    My heart is heavy for all of you but what a nice, full life he lived. “Ang” was the consummate GENTLEman and such a warm individual who obviously showed such devotion and love to SMA and all of you. We always enjoyed seeing him at the family gatherings and holidays and with your large crew there were many over the years. May your memories of your husband, dad and Poppy always stay close in your heart.
    Love and hugs to you all.

  • Dearest Mrs. Anrico, Gail and your families, the picture you chose says it all – your loving husband and father was a magnet for drawing everyone into a good time – with smiles and hugs and just plain “wishing you well.” He wore his heart on his sleeve for anyone who needed a little help, a little advice and even an amazing woodworking creation. We know that our own fathers are embracing Mr. Anrico as they join as an extended family of loved ones. May God be with each one of you as the challenge of this loss continues to pierce your hearts – you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, David & Marie

  • Dear Shirley,
    My brothers and I were saddened to hear of Angelo’s passing. As you know, the Anrico and Patella families were the best of friends. Your mother in law and my mother attended mass at St. Thomas Church every day. I remember your wedding at the Pastime Club 65 years ago. I also remember you bringing your daughter, Carol, as a baby to the apartment in my mother’s house. I was a pallbearer for your mother in law 51 years ago. My wife, Theresa, and I send you our sympathy and prayers.

  • My father worked for Mr. Anrico at the South Norwalk Post Office for many years. My dad considered him to be a great supervisor, fair to all. Mr. Anrico was also one of my scout leaders at Troop 150 at St. Thomas Church in East Norwalk. He was a wonderful man and great role model for all of us. Please know that the Anrico family is in our thoughts and prayers.
