  • ANTHONY DESIDERIO
    10/14/1910 - 3/3/2011

    In a nursing home in New Jersey on the occasion of his 100th Birthday in 2010 I asked Dad what he thought were the most important things in life. This was his answer...

    Study as much as you can study.
    Learn as much as you can learn.
    And be as good as you could be.

    Simple...
    and demanding words.
