Gildo was like my second farther, I lived next door to him and adjacent to his Dad. I worked for him every summer while going to school and every weekend I could. Gildo and his Dad taught me how hard work pays off. He taught me to drive a truck , dozer and lay brick and stone. We paved driveways, sidewalks and did all sorts of construction work.
When I got married Gildo was there letting me use any piece of equipment I needed. He was my mentor and made it possible for me to build my first home in Medfield. It was a big bump in life.
I’ll always have fond memories of him
