In memoriam, Angelo Vassallo

The Amherst College family mourns the loss of Angelo T. Vassallo, 64, who died suddenly on Monday, April 18, 2011, at Cooley Dickinson Hospital. Angie had been an employee of the College from November, 1981 until his retirement in January, 2010.

An employee of the custodial department for many years, Angie was known and loved by all.  As an employee of the custodial department, he was selected by the students as the recipient of four honorary degrees (the most awarded to any custodian).  He was an avid sports fan and particularly enjoyed the Boston Red Sox.   

Angie leaves his wife, Helen, also a recent retiree of the College.
