    We just found out that Dante passed away last month. He was a wonderful neighbor and we loved chit-chatting with him whenever we could. We mostly remember him walking around the Kessler Farm loop. He will be missed and we certainly hope that he didn’t suffer. RIP, Dante, you were one of a kind.

    Fondly remember Dante as a good friend and fun character from my days at healthco and my 50+years in dental business & always looked him up at dental shows just to reminisce. He will be missed

    Regretful and surprised to learn of Dante’ passing.
    We of the old Wing will miss him being at our side at the Jevelli”s luncheons.

    His being again at the side of his beloved dad is a saving grace of sorts.

    Godspeed Dante
