Vondi could be rough, but the man never made excuses nor was he false about who he was. That makes him probably the most honest man I ever had the pleasure of knowing. I was lucky to get to go to Italy with him. Some of my best memories are carrying him in one arm an luggage in the other. He did a lot of work for the people of Bellaire, many times for not more than a spaghetti dinner. I will miss you zio, and I will see you again someday.

Vondi, was always in demand, a great plumber- when you could get him, we use to have to wait till evening to get a hold of him. Our whole Family always called for Vondi’s help. I remember Vondi came to our wedding, hardly anyone recognized him, he didn’t have his little hat on, and he really was a handsome man underneath all that dirt. A great man, our sympathy to his Family. Rest in peace, Vondi, sure goes to say that hard work never killed anybody, because Vondi worked from morning till night.
