Vito was a man that knew the meaning of Good Samaritan. He was always friendly and looking to extend an helping hand. As a neighbor of Vito's we remember him as a man whose presence was larger than life. He made us feel welcome and he made it known that we could come to him to ask for anything. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word. He really loved his home and his neighbors and we all shared a great love for our town and it's intrinsic beauty. We will think of you as smiling down on us and trust you are at peace with the Lord. All our best always and prayers for this trying time to Lidi and the rest of your family .... THE MELITO FAMILY
