We are sending our sincere condolences to the Grillo family. Shortly after we moved into our home Alfie and Grace showed up on our porch with a plate of chocolate chip cookies to welcome us to the neighborhood. And that’s how we met our backyard neighbors. Always a smile or kind word and willing to help when needed. I hope your family continues to share the memories you have shared with Alfie. Grief hurts but it also means we have loved someone deeply. Our thoughts are with you.

Alfie and I went to Manville High School together. He was such a nice person. We had many good times and laughter together. I was shocked to read he had passed. MY Thoughts and prayers are with his family. May he rest in peace.

Alfie was one of those people you just like from the moment you meet him. Funny, generous, hard working and all around great guy. He was Best Man at our wedding 37 years ago. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Janet and the family.

So sorry to hear of the passing my old pal Alfie, the best plumber ever, a great beekeeper, drummer and fellow Frank Zappa fanatic. You will be sorely missed and never forgotten.

We are so sad to hear of Alfie's passing. We looked forward to his weekly visits to the farm stand. Always a smile and great conversations. He will be missed by many. Sending our prayers and deepest sympathy to his family.

We were so terribly sorry to hear of Alfie's death. He was a lovely person, a tremendously skilled tradesman who truly loved and understood historic houses. As old-house owners as well, we were delighted when a friend recommended him to us, and he'd been upgrading systems for us over the past 7 years. He always brought a bright, genuine smile, a can-do attitude, and a reassuring "we can take care of that" to every visit. We enjoyed him immensely.
Our heartfelt condolences on losing this delightful man. We will remember him fondly.

Alfie was a friend and gracious worker along with Janet at the Warren Fair and Hunterdon fair. Later and after awhile, we had a Granddaughter who could sell honey jars just with her smile. Alfie came after me at Northwest where I was already a member of our Association. I noticed a talented and outgoing team with Janet, who helped and touched all that they come into contact with. Janet could offer tips on raising her Juliet grape tomatoes, that I love and raise myself. I love people who have themselves to offer, a mark of true character. Salt of the Earth-Alfie, yea, I love ya but, I will see you again. Until then, I will miss you and pray for you both, Janet and you. Charley Ilsley Northwest Beekeepers.
