Angelo Battaglia 3/10/34 – 11/26/23

Founder and owner of Two Brothers from Italy, Angelo’s Ristorante, and Rosalia’s Deli
(Elmhurst), Angelo immigrated to America from Italy in 1972 with his wife and three children
and settled in Elmhurst. He was fiercely devoted to family and friends, and had a smile that
could light up a room. He exemplified courage, tenderness, loyalty, hospitality, pride for one’s
work, generosity, respect, and patience. Always cooking for his family, friends, and community
members, Angelo handed down that adoration to everyone that had the pleasure to meet him.

Giacinto, Carmela, and Giovanna.
