Pop, Big Al, Papada, Popee, went to be with Jesus early Saturday morning at 97 years old. Pop was born and raised in New York and built a successful career in advertising. He also taught a semester of college despite never having completed his own education past middle school. He worked until the age of 75.
In the early 1990’s, he moved to Alpine to be closer to his West Coast family.
Pop was proud of his Sicilian nationality. He loved Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack. And duct tape.
Pop was a once in a lifetime blessing and will be missed until the day we are reunited.
He was welcomed into Heaven by his parents, Wife, Agatha Mauro, brothers, sisters and friends.
He is survived by one brother, Peter Mauro, two daughters and sons in law, Agnes Hill and Joseph Schwartz and Barbara and Tom Lennon, and his grandchildren, Matt and Caryn Hill and Jessica Lennon and husband Danny Smith and Katherine Lennon, also by his great-grandchildren, Lucy Lennon, Thomas and Sophia Hill.

Happy Father’s Day, Pop. I woke up missing you extra today. Dad too. Just going to some brunch that I hated, or to your house, which I always loved-I’d give anything for one more day. I miss your gentleness, unconditional love, grace and soft spoken advice, your wisdom and lessons. I just miss you. Have an amazing day with Dad and everyone else in Heaven. See you soon. Love always, in all ways.

Hi, Pop! Sorry I didn’t post here on the 11th. I posted on Facebook. I cannot even believe it’s been 9 years since you’ve been gone. It’s been quite the 9 years! I’d give anything to go back to when you and Dad were here. It was a better time, a better life. I miss you always. Thanks for being my best friend. Love you now and forever. See you when I get there. 💙

Happy Birthday, Pop. Had a good Italian meal in honor of you tonight. Wish you were here to join us. Valentine’s Day will never be the same without you. You put all the love and heart into the day. Until we get to be together again, we love you and will never forget you.

Merry Christmas, Pop. We shared Christmas memories with Lucy today about you-all with a smile. Every holiday was magical with you. I’m so thankful to have had you as a grandpa. I miss you, but I’m better because of you. Love you lots. You and Dad take care of each other until we are all together again. Don’t cause too much trouble in Heaven. Always, in all ways.
