Aldo’s love for his family was first and foremost. Thanks to Aldo’s lake development, Johnson’s Beach Subdivision, he was always in the company of family and friends which was a source of constant happiness for him. He enjoyed music, dancing, boating, fishing, travelling and for many years was an avid card player. He was a man truly blessed by his family’s love and his memory and legacy will never be forgotten.
