Pasquale “Pat” Pappalardo ’70 died last November from leukemia. He was 81. Born in Naples, Italy, Pat and his brother Joe immigrated to the United States, opening their namesake pizzeria in Castleton Corners, Staten Island, in 1960.
In the Seventies Pat went into real estate, opening Papp Realty. “He was one of the honorable, good guys,” said Staten Island realtor George Wonica, “one of the super ones out there.”
