I had the Privilege and honor of knowing Modestino, he was truly a great person. Modestino was always Genuine, Kind Hearted, Generous and an Unselfish person willing to help anyone, he always had an Infectious Pleasant smile on his face that will be deeply missed but never forgotten. I was fortunate to have been able to spend many hours in the company of Modestino enjoying his conversations listening to his life stories, advice and most of all joking and sharing so many good times and laughs. I will miss you very much my dear Modestino. May you rest in peace. Love Sal Tropiano
