It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Mr. Angelo Campo, former faculty member, at the age of 87.
Mr. Campo was proud to be an educator at Don Bosco Prep, where he taught French and English for 48 years, from 1958 to 2006, and he was the founder of the National Honor Society. He was beloved by both students and colleagues, and manifested extraordinary attachment to Don Bosco.
Angelo passed away in his sleep on October 16, 2018 at Shorrock Gardens Care Center in Brick. Born in Elizabeth to his late parents Angelo and Bettina (Rocco) Campo, Angelo resided in Union for forty-eight years, moved to South Plainfield with his daughter and her family from 2012-2014 and then settled in Lakewood.
For twenty years, Angelo was a Sergeant with the Army National Guard where he served during the 1966 Riots in Newark. Angelo was a very devout Catholic, and in his youth, he was an altar server at St. Anthony’s Parish in Elizabeth. Angelo graduated high school and continued his education until graduation from Seton Hall University. After teaching at Don Bosco, he then went on to own his own landscape business, P.A.C. Enterprises. Angelo loved his family and friends, but most importantly he enjoyed his time spent with his granddaughters.
Predeceased by six siblings, Angelo leaves behind his loving and devoted family; wife Pauline (Gualano) Campo of fifty-three years, daughter Bettina DeVizio and her husband Daniel of South Plainfield, son Angelo Campo, Jr. and his partner Michael Vasilevich of Long Branch, two granddaughters; Danielle and Deanna, both of South Plainfield as well as numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.
