I'm so sorry for your loss. Mr. Candeloro was a great man who will be missed. I will miss his stories about traveling with his family. Whenever he spoke of all of you he had a smile on his face. It was a pleasure talking care of him. I he thought of him and the family every day. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. I hope you can find comfort knowing he is now with the lord.

Dear Sandy, my deepest sympathy to you and the family. I saw Izzy last November at the Romeo meeting.We had a stroll down memory lane(dumb things we did as kids) and I promised him we would come down and go to lunch. Izzy was a great friend, teammate and I will always remember him. May he RIP. Regards,Fred Hallback

Sandy and Izzy were part of the Northridge neighborhood. After really long days he still had time to stop for the adults and especially the kids. He helped plan many trips with wonderful suggestions for Sid and I. Sandy, may memories of these long past times add to those of a very long marriage to bring you some solace.

Sandy and Family ...I just heard about Izzy's passing , and I am shocked and so sad to hear this. My Brother Joe and I were just talking last month at the Romeo Luncheon and discussed calling Izzy. It had been awhile since he joined the group . What a tremendous wonderful Icon from Claymont. My Brother's grew up around Izzy's era and although being much younger , heard many stories about Izzy and other Claymont legends. God bless Him and your Family , and I am certain my Brothers will be devastated. What a wonderful Man . Claymont was such a great place to grow up in , and a era that will never be seen again !

Uncle Izzy, best uncle ever! Always with a smile and a laugh. He was a great man and lived life to the fullest. I have so many fond memories of him when I was growing up, watching old family slides on his projector, barbecue at Pop Pop's, and so many more. Izzy and Sandy raised a great family together. I bet he's showing his card tricks in Heaven right now. How he will be missed!

The world has lost one of the great ones. Uncle Izzy was a kind-hearted, gentle giant to me. I only have great memories of him. He was a role model and put the human in humanity. Aunt Sandy how lucky were you to have so many years with him. You two were meant for each other. I see him in each of your family members so I hope that will help you in the days to come. We love you all and our hearts go out to you and the Candeloro clan. Dawn & Beth Anders
