He loved his family and was unconditionally loved by them. 

Beloved husband of Elaine Asaro (nee Bickerton).  Loving son of the late Eleanor (nee Dell Cioppo) and Joseph Asaro.  Devoted father of Nancy Asaro and Lori Dring and her husband Paul.  Cherished grandfather of Amanda DeMauro and Casey and Jessica Dring.  Dear brother of Linda Morella (spJohn Morella), Robert Asaro (sp Marie) and the late Thomas Asaro.  Uncle to many nieces and nephews.  Other family members, Henry Kenny (deceased), Rosemary Kenny-Kolialis, James Kenny (deceased)

He enjoyed celebrating life with family and friends. He truly was an amazing person who put others before himself.  He demonstrated power, loyalty and infinite love with little to zero effort. 

The “lake house” was his sanctuary, he was surrounded by nature and animals that he so much enjoyed. He was an avid fisherman, but the big one always got away! 

He will be missed by all but forever in our hearts.
