Angel Antongiorgi, a longtime Beacon resident, passed away on December 9, 2021, at the Montefiore St. Luke’s-Cornwall Hospital in Newburgh, NY; he was 72 years old. He was born in Humacao, Puerto Rico on October 2, 1949, son of the late Sergio Antongiorgi and Francisca Pérez.
Angel served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War from November 3, 1969 to June 6, 1971, and received an honorable discharge of service.
After the Army he settled in Brooklyn N.Y. and began working at Velsco plastic factory where he met Julia Yolanda. After a period of courtship, they married on December 16, 1971. They began their journey in Queens N.Y. where Angel became a truck driver delivering home heating oil. He then transitioned to being employed by New York State Corrections and served them for over 25 years. His career in corrections started at Greenhaven Correctional Facility, continued onto Sing Sing CF, and finally retiring at Downstate Correctional in Fishkill N.Y. during November 2013. That opportunity gave him financial stability to move his family to Wappingers Falls, N.Y. and a few years later achieved his dream of buying a house in Beacon N.Y. where he lived together with his wife, children and grandchildren.
His biggest enjoyment was helping and being a loving father to his kids at every milestone of their lives. Spending time and helping raise his grandkids. Traveling to different destinations in Europe with his beloved wife. Listening to music, dancing, having conversations and joking around with friends and loved ones.
