IN MEMORIAM:  Gaspare Stabile;

Immigrated, Farmed In Worcester

WORCESTER – Born in the old country, Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, Italy, Gaspare Stabile led a life full of adventure.

His parents Giuseppe and Maria Cristina taught him a lot about the ways of the land, along with several uncles and cousins.
At the age of 19, he emigrated to the United States without any knowledge of what he would do. He seized the opportunity to forge a life with many difficulties as he didn’t speak any English. His strength and determination led him to the opportunity of becoming a mason. Competition was fierce, but Gaspare was able to rise above that as his attention to detail along with his friendliness led to many successes.
