Joseph T. St. Angelo, 79, of Oak Park, died after a brief illness. Born and raised in New York City, his urban roots remained with him throughout his lifetime. In his later years he settled in Oak Park where he met his future wife, JoAnn. A man of many natural gifts, he was fluent in French and Spanish and lived in Europe for extended periods, studying at the Sorbonne in Paris and deeply exploring France, Italy, Spain, Greece and Malta. He was especially fond of Paris, Madrid and London and continuously sought to increase his knowledge in art, music, and architecture, always taking the road less travelled. Blessed with a rich baritone voice, his love of classical and sacred music was a dominant source of joy. Vaya con Dios, Jose. Il chante avec les anges.
Joe St. Angelo was the husband of the late JoAnn, who utterly fulfilled his life; stepfather of David (Anna) Richards and Jennifer (Aaron Dellutri) Richards; grandfather of Amelia; and the brother of Ted St. Angelo and Patricia Devlin.
