Chief Engineer Angelo Petta‚ an 18 year veteran of the Garfield Fire Department and an equipment operator for the Public Works Department in Garfield‚ died suddenly of a heart attack while evacuating a residence due to a natural gas leak. The residence was around the corner from Chief Engineer Petta’s residence. Angelo will be missed not only for his upbeat personality and his willingness to help‚ but for the family he leaves behind at a young age. Angelo is survived by his wife Domenica‚ his two young boys George and Joseph‚ along with his mother and numerous brothers and sisters.
