Obituary of Vincent Monteleone

Please share a memory of Vincent to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather Vincent Monteleone. On February 17th, Vincent took his last breath, and joined our Lord in Heaven.


We take comfort in knowing he will reunite with all his loved ones who passed, including his son Frank Monteleone. As well as his parents Francesco and Angela Monteleone and siblings Sara Cullaro, Giuseppe Monteleone and Angelo Monteleone.


Vinnie left an everlasting impression in people’s hearts. His simple way of living touched all that met him. He loved this country, often telling everyone God Bless America! He loved his family very much and never stopped expressing his love for his grandchildren. He is survived by his loving wife Maddalena Monteleone married 62 years. His daughters Angela Koumoutsos (Louie) of Tinton Falls, NJ and Carmela Calamita (Angelo) of Freehold, NJ; grandchildren Kristina (George) Kamaratos and Vincent’s great grandchild Dina Kamaratos, Anthony and Sofia Koumoutsos, Savina, Valentina, and Giacomo Calamita. 


Vinnie was born in Santo Stefano Quisquina, Providence of Agrigento Sicily on Jan 14, 1935. He married his beloved wife Maddalena in Sicily April 26, 1962.


He immigrated to Brooklyn, New York after spending 21 days sailing across the Atlantic Ocean. He left his loving wife Maddalena and newborn daughter, Angela behind. He often spoke about the proud feeling of seeing the Statue of Liberty in the harbor by himself on Feb 2, 1965.


Upon his arrival Vinnie worked hard getting lost on subways commuting to work not speaking English to save enough money to send for his family. Labor Day weekend he was reunited with his family at JFK airport. Soon after he moved his family to Newark, New Jersey and his daughter Carmela was born.


Within the Italian neighborhood he met Anthony DeMaio and the American dream came true for Vinnie. He was a master bricklayer and mason for 50 years. A specialty craft he learned from his roots in Sicily. He loved taking Sunday drives with his family in his 1976 blue Cadillac. He was so very proud to show his family all the job sites he worked on; his life was a dream come true.


He was an honest, loyal hardworking man. We often laughed about his retirement party we threw him in 2000. Just for him to go to work the next day. May his memory be eternal.


Our Friends and family are invited to pay their final respects and attend funeral services scheduled for Wednesday, February 21, 2024 at 11:00am at St Gabriel Main Church

100 N Main Street Marlboro NJ 07746.


The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Marlboro EMS team, and the emergency room staff at Centra State Hospital for their efforts as well.  In lieu of flowers, please send donation to our beloved St George Greek Orthodox Church, Ocean NJ by visiting
