Loving Memory of Armando Clemente
Armando Clemente, a man of extraordinary talent and unwavering dedication, passed away on July 27, 2023. Armando was born the oldest of five children to Salvatore and Angela Clemente in Montella, Italy on June 4, 1938. As a teenager Armando’s family moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He later returned to Italy where he met his wife, Salvatrice Elena Capone. They married on January 25, 1962, and returned to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where their love thrived, laying the foundation for a beautiful family legacy and 62 years of marriage.
Armando possessed a rare and comprehensive combination of almost every skill, trade, and craft related to building and construction with added specialties in mechanical engineering, and metal work. Beyond his exceptional workmanship he later ventured into the restaurant business. He moved his family to New Jersey where he owned and operated a restaurant for 25 years. Through his work he touched the lives of countless people.
Later in life, he was blessed with a much-needed heart transplant, and for 23 years, he lived in gratitude, cherishing each moment and embracing life with a renewed appreciation.
His passion and his heart were his life, his purpose was his cherished family, but his greatest joy was his grandchildren. He had a distinct personality and sense of humor which left an indelible mark on the hearts of all who knew him.
As we bid farewell to Armando, we take comfort in knowing that his spirit lives on in the memories he created and the love he shared with those closest to him. His legacy as a skilled craftsman, a devoted husband, a person of strong faith, and a loving father and grandfather will forever be etched in our hearts.
