    Mr. Adducci was my baseball coach for Roseland Little League. He was such a great coach and a wonderful man. He was also a classmate and great friend of my father( who passed away in 1965). I remember him always being so active at Saint Anthony`s parish during the glory days of Roseland. A great man who had a great life. May he RIP.

      I am writing to a friend that has been my friend for many years.  I am the fellow that hit a softball in the St Anthony school yard that injured your thumb. My claim to fame, and you would always remind of. We were alter boys together, we worked as starters at OFCC and you visited me here at the assisted living. I hold my friendship with you as special. I know you will be okay, the good Lord will not pass on a good thing.  Phil
