Albert Anthony “Pops” Zangaro
April 1st, 1942 – April 10th, 2018
For fourteen years, Vince Zangaro cared for his “Pops” who lived with Alzheimer’s disease. During that time, Vince developed a deep and abiding love, compassion and a gentleness of spirit that endeared him to care partners around the world. He shared some of his feelings on Facebook the day he and his family said farewell to Pops.
Besides being the primary care partner to his father, Zangaro is a musician and the main driver behind the Alzheimer’s Music Fest. His posts and videos documenting the loving care he and his wife Amy give Pops inspired and will no doubt continue to inspire thousands.
As Zangaro and his family approached their final days together, Vince took the time to recognize Chappie Bird, his father’s feathered friend. Here’s that Facebook post as well:
