Obituary for Alfonso Celotto, likely Antonino's son from Staten Island Advance, 09 Dec 2004
"Alfonso Celotto, 74, of Grasmere, a retired warehouse supervisor for a moving company, died Tuesday at home.

Born in Manhattan, he moved with his family briefly to Washington, D.C., during his teen-age years, before relocating to Brooklyn around 1948.

Soon after, Mr. Celotto wed Helen Scotto, and the couple settled in Grasmere in 1967.

For about 35 years, he was employed by Dahill Moving & Storage Co., Brooklyn. He worked first as a mover and later as a warehouse supervisor before retiring 10 years ago.

He was a very simple man, very genuine, said his sister, Mary Scotto.

Mr. Celotto liked to watch television, play the horses and follow sports -- especially baseball.

He had open-heart surgery four years ago, and never really went out of the house much after that. But he always got excited when February and March came, because he knew baseball was starting up again, said Mrs. Scotto.

Mr. Celotto loved to eat -- especially Italian and American foods, and sweets during the holidays.

He was a parishioner of St. Christopher's R.C. Church, Grant City.

Mr. Celotto's wife of almost 45 years, Helen, died in 1994.

In addition to his sister, Mary, surviving are his sister, Ann Rutigliano, and his brother, Aldo.

The funeral will be Saturday from the Martin Hughes Funeral Home, Concord, with a mass at 9:45 a.m. in St. Christopher's Church. Burial will follow in Resurrection Cemetery, Pleasant Plains."

Alfonso was the cousin of my grandfather and I found the address of Mary Scotto ( I hope she's still alive)
