Obituaries » Angelo Esposito

Angelo Esposito passed away on May 14th, 2020 at Morristown Medical Center.

A faithful and loving man with a contagious smile, Angelo was a constant reminder that there is true kindness to be found in this world. Upon entering a room, he always introduced a comforting wave of warmth and positive energy.

Angelo was born in Newark, raised in West Caldwell, and relocated to East Hanover in 1996.

He graduated from Seton Hall University in 1975. After working for ‘Graybar Electric’ in Newark, he joined the family business ‘Esposito’s Meats and Deli’ of East Hanover in 1983. He served the community with respect and he was loved dearly. Upon meeting him, Angelo had the wonderful ability to make you feel as if you were lifelong friends.

Angelo met the love of his life in 1982 while they were both vacationing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The language barrier was not enough to keep these soulmates apart, and they spent 37 blissful years together.

Angelo’s greatest joys were spending time with his family, and sharing an Italian meal with his loved ones. He adored classic oldies music, loved to travel, and enjoyed discussing hockey, as well as other sports. He was a passionate New York Rangers fan, and he possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of the team, and of hockey in general. In the past few years, he had also become a New York Red Bulls fan and enjoyed attending the games in Harrison with his close friends and family.

He is survived by his wife, Céline (née Vaillancourt); his two sons: Marc and Eric; his two brothers: Eddie and his wife, Nancy of Long Valley and Michael and his wife, Treasa of East Hanover; his uncle, Neil Larsen and his wife, Josephine of Old Bridge; and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, there will be no mass or wake but a memorial will be held at a later date to celebrate his life.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the American Diabetes Association.

Angelo, you will always be remembered for your infinite warmth and your immeasurable wealth of kindness. Rest in Heavenly Peace. We love you.

Funeral arrangements are private.
