MR. ANGIONE WAS ONE OF THE NICEST PEOPLE I HAVE EVER MET. I KNEW MR ANGIONE FOR MANY YEARS AND HE WAS LIKE A FATHER TO ME. HE WOULD ALWAYS GIVE SOUND ADVICE ON ANY SUBJECT INCLUDING CHRISTIANITY. I WANT TO THANK HIS CHILDREN FOR ALLOWING THEIR PARENTS TO BE PART OF MY LIFE.
When I was young he would come and preach at our church in Palisades Park NJ. We have great memories of his visits and remember him at his passing.
Gail and I wish to also say that botha Ralph and his lovely wife will always be remembered for their geruime love and care to anyone who needed help spiritually or in a practical way. He truly immitated our Lord in his life. We will miss him greatly, but he is enjoying the presence of the One he loved and served well.
Ralph Angione was an amazing, wonderful person- He is now preaching in Heaven- God Bless Him.
My sincere apologies for not being able to make it to the wake or funeral. RIP Mr.Angione.
Ralph was one of the most dedicated men to missions work that I have even known. He also always was interested in our well-being and and showed his love. Carol and I will miss him but know that he has “graduated” into the Lord’s presence.
Ralph was like a father to me. He always spoke Jesus First to everyone no matter where I took him: to church, restaurants, nursing homes, hospitals, etc. One of my favorite sayings from him was, the best is yet to come. My favorite verse to hear from him was, Oh taste and see that the Lord is good. By finding Ralph through one of his tracts 3 years ago I found a great church I love, Hoboken Gospel Chapel.
We miss our brother Ralph for his love of the Lord and the brethren but we will also miss his sense of humor and spirit of encouragement. As an evangelist, Ralph has led many people to the Lord and has stored up his treasures in Heaven. He was also a prayer warrior keeping our unsaved family members in prayer telling us to never give up praying for them. I miss you brother! We all do.
I wrote a note of sympathy yesterday. My wife Carol and I loved Antoinette and Ralph. Ralph continued to correspond with us throughout Antoinette’s illness and until about one year ago. We were thinking of Ralph recently and noticed the recent obituary. I am John Bianca, a grandson of Domenico Caporrino from Yonkers, New York. My mother Antoinette Caporrino Bianca, who is Antoinette’s cousin, was my mother.
