Armando was a beautiful soul. I can recall him in Mr Webbers' music class. Sitting next to me, we never paid any attention to Webber. We would create ornate doodles to go with the music or lecture and try not to get caught. I looked forward to seeing him, and often wonder what the world has missed.

Does anyone remember when it was that Armando died?  Was it in the latter half of the 70's?

I always remember Armando as a gentle soul, and I enjoyed knowing him.  In my junior year, we went together to a dance; it would be fun to see if I can find and post a photo of the two of us, poised before the camera on my front lawn on a spring evening.  Many evenings, Armando and I used to have very long phone conversations where he would talk about old movies of the thirties and forties, a topic he was very knowledgeable about.  I remember being so sad to hear that he had passed away.

I didn't know Armando well, but I do remember him [which is saying a lot]   He radiated a special difference., Perhaps it was an air of sophistication ,combined with,intelligence and a good sense of humor.It is sad that he is gone,I remember him as one of the ''good ones''.

I was friendly with Armando since grade school. As Pat Sette said, he was a gentle soul. Armando died in the 80s of AIDS related complications. He was a fine man.

Armondo grew up in our Delford Park neighborhood, we were boyhood pals as well as schoolmates. Our families were all connected as neighbors would be back in those days. He would sometimes come over and swim in our pool and we'd get invited to backyard parties that featured a lot of family and copious amounts of Italian food. He was a good kid and a fine neighbor. As we got older we found different paths but as long as we took the same bus to school we were all good buddies. Somewhere along the way I'd heard that he passed away but I never heard any details of his passing. It seemed way too soon in any event.
