Bepi was an avid outdoorsman who loved to be out hunting and fishing. He was a teacher in those fields. Whether they were the right teachings or the wrong teachings, he passed his love and knowledge to his 2 sons and his grandson, who all love the outdoors. When he wasn’t outside he was inside helping mom make pizzas and pastas. Every Sunday the kitchen and dining room table were full of fresh pizza and pasta. There is nothing like a fathers love, and he had lots of that. He was always willing to help. From helping his daughter opening and closing the pool, to making gardens, tending to flowers, cutting grass, or just as a chauffeur; he was always there for all of us.
A devoted husband who could give mom a hard time, he loved her more than anything. In their 49th year of marriage, no matter what, mom was his everything. He always said “Your poor mom. LOL.” He is going to be terribly missed. As a lot of us know him as “Moose Godfather”. Rest in Peace. We Love you Dad.
