Amadeo Navarroli

Amadeo Navarroli was born in Prezza, Italy. He lived a loving life with his wife, Edith and had four children. He lived his life to the fullest especially sharing his love of making wine and playing music on his squeezeboxes. He was always happiest delivering a gallon of wine and just sitting with family and friends. He was always there to help with a car repair or make some neat woodwork that would be shared by each of his children. For a man that had little formal education, he was always full of wisdom and pride. He would say “give my love to all!”

TrulyApart of my heart

Amadeo Navarroli moved from Italy to the United States with his family at the age of five. His family resided in Niagara Falls, New York. After working at National Lead, he married Edith and raised a family of four. His life was filled with a great work ethic that he shared with his family and friends. Most weekends were spent with relatives and doing some kind of project. His love of music was the bond that connected him with so many musical friends. The gift of love of music and family will always be cherished.

  • Caring
  • Musical
Papa Boo was one of the most influential men in my life. His love for his wife and family were like no other and you saw this on his face everyday. You captured a glimpse of this when he was making pasta and pizzelles with grandma or getting ready for Friday night poker with the Mancini’s or yelling at my cousin Michael for wiring the TV in a way that confused papa or him slipping us a little treat and saying “don’t tell grandma”. My favorite thing was making him say my name because with his Italian accent, it was Kandra instead of Kendra.

I would love spending the night at his house. He would play the organ, I would dance and grandma sang. After the festivities he would tell grandma I wanted some sherbet (even though it was always his idea).

He was also legendary for his wine and wine vinegar. People would also stop by to say hi, enjoy the sounds of the squeeze box or catch a Bills game. There isn’t a day that goes by since he passed that I don’t think of him or miss him. He was my everything and always will be.
