Angelo's family would like to thank you all for your love and support. In lieu of flowers,
please consider making a donation to The Prem Rawat Foundation, through

Angelo Joseph Malfitano

was born in Newark, New Jersey on Feb 5, 1927 to Agata and Luciano Malfitano,
two hard working Sicilian immigrants. He was raised in Newark and Brooklyn, NY, the
fifth of 10 children, with 6 brothers and 3 sisters. Growing up during the Depression,
his family struggled, but Angelo was a determined spirit from the very beginning, committed to providing for his siblings and family.
Angelo lived his life determined to make a way for himself in this world. He had a
preternatural psychic ability to see his future, and he never wavered from his convictions even when times got tough. In his teens and twenties, Angelo was a singer on Broadway under the stage
name Alan Reed, and worked as a guy Friday for Perry Como, among other adventures, until before a fateful day in Bensonhurst Brooklyn when he met a stunningly beautiful young woman named Amanda (Amy) Guertin, and he knew he had met the woman he was destined to marry Angelo and Amanda were married Sept 22, 1951 in a courthouse in New Jersey. Two young kids themselves, they both knew their destiny. Angelo, channeling his psychic abilities, told Amy that they were going to have five children and raise them in a big house on a hill. That future did indeed come to be with the birth of Louis in 1953, followed by Susan, Arthur, Timothy and Amanda.
After a health scare that put Angelo in the hospital, he convinced the owners of John’s Bargain Stores Brooklyn to give him the contract to build their store, even though he had little experience and no supplies – just a conviction in himself. From there his career took off. As success found him, he never forgot where he came from, always giving to his family, friends and greater community.
Angelo and Amanda were practicing Catholics, but In 1970 or 1971, he learned of a boy guru named Prem Rawat from India who was coming to New York to give teachings, and Angelo’s curiosity brought him to hear him speak.
From there he found his spiritual home, gaining knowledge and the techniques of meditation and the holi breath.
Angelo was a seeker, a questioner and an avid reader. He loved to engage in discourse with family, friends and
strangers alike, enlightening those around him and encouraging them to move toward their highest selves. He had a loving heart that embraced all humans, regardless of race or creed, and he lived by the principles of karma, devotion to the infinite, and kindness toward all.
Angelo’s family grew and grew to include 9 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren to whom he was an endlessly devoted grandfather.
To say that Angelo Joseph Malfitano loved life would be an understatement. He delighted in being alive. His eyes
twinkled at the mere mention of the gift that is the holi breath. Had it been up to him, he would have stayed on this planet in his body until 150, and those of us that loved him know that even that would never have been enough. He passed on Sept 20th 2022 at 11:59 pm surrounded by his family. While the vessel that was his body might no longer be with us, we know that his spirit and heart will live on in the bosom of his family for the next 500 years. As he would say to us, it was our duty to celebrate the beauty of this existence, and from him to you, I encourage you to do the same.

Rest in Peace dear Angelo, until we meet again.
