With his unyielding will and drive, and indestructible bond with his wife Angiolina, he forged ahead and built his own construction business. He was a member of the St. Margaret’s church in Morristown as well as an avid gardener who loved to share his knowledge with everyone. Mr. Robertelli loved to break bread with his friends and share stories. He loved giving advice to those seeking a shoulder to lean on, his life experience reflected in his certainty, a certainty that grew through hard times of survival.
