CONIGLIO, Angelo Raymond

January 17, 2015.

Beloved son of Angelo F. and Angie Bongiovanni Coniglio. Loving big brother and friend of his late sister Angela Y. Coniglio. Angelo went to sleep with his loved ones beside him.

A star ice-hockey player, in 1984, he sustained a spinal cord injury while playing the game he loved. Although it left him a quadriplegic, he nevertheless loved life, and he completed a bachelor's degree at the University of Buffalo after his injury.

Angelo also loved fishing; writing prose and poetry; creating graphic arts; and MUSIC ~ the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and so many more. He played the harmonica, guitar, and keyboard, emulating his rock heroes.

He created many striking graphics for family, friends and acquaintances, and most of his acquaintances soon became his friends. He withstood his debilitating injury for thirty-one years, with courage and an easy-going, infectious personality. He has donated his organ to UNYTS.

Angelo is survived by his parents, his dear aunts Connie Coniglio Miller and Teresa Lanza Long, and by dozens of loving cousins too numerous to mention, but all of whom held a place in his heart.

The family will be present on Saturday, January 24th from 1 PM – 5 PM at the Perna, Dengler, Roberts Funeral Home, 1671 Maple Road, Williamsville.

Excalibur Leisure Skills Center made it possible for Angelo and many others with physical limitations to go out on Lake Erie to fish. It would make him happy to have donations go to them, to help them continue their work, care of 90 North Drive, Buffalo 14216.
