He joined our family’s business in 1990, and took on various roles, culminating in his leadership of the sales and marketing effort as Vice President. He believed in our brand and was tireless in his efforts to connect with customers and make Delmhorst what it is today. We will miss him dearly.”

He is survived by his loving children, Sophia and Maximilian, and their mother, Stephanie; his mother Phyllis; five sisters, Adeline, Patricia, Maria (Michael), Sandra, and Francesca; four brothers, Thomas (Barbara), John (Paulette), Mark (Margarethe) and Christopher; and extended family in the U.S. and Italy.
