Sad News From NJ

Our condolences to the family and acquaintances of Mark Angelo, a driver for Nick's Towing of Rutherford, NJ. Angelo was killed on Friday, Oct. 14, when he was struck by a tractor trailer on the side of the road. Here is the information that was sent to us from Nick's Towing:

In Memoriam Mark A. Angelo 
August 14, 1960-October 14, 2011
It is with a heavy heart that I regret to inform you of the loss of our driver Mark Angelo. He was tragically killed in the early morning hours on Friday, October 14, 2011. Mark was struck by a tractor trailer after loading a disabled vehicle on a ramp in Rutherford, NJ. Mark was a loyal employee of nearly 10 years. He loved helping others and was one of the kindest people you could meet.
It has been a very difficult few days for everyone. The burden has been made easier by all of you who have been there for us. Be it a phone call, your presence, your prayers, donations and your offers of help; it all has meant so very much.
I can't think of anything worse as an owner than losing one of your men and in this case it is a man who holds a special place in my heart. There will never be another Mark.
God bless,
Nick Testa

Mark is survived by his sons Mark and Matthew, his mother Lucille, stepfather Charles and, father and stepmother Mr. & Mrs. George Angelo.

Special Thanks
There are many people who spent many hours making the arrangements for the tow truck procession. We thank all of the towing companies that came and proved just how close knit the towing community is. We can't help but think how much Mark would have loved and appreciated everyone's efforts.
