Funeral services were held April 28 at St. Clare’s Church for well known Morris Park Realtor and retired police officer Daniel Fasolino, who died at his home April 24, at age 74.
Fasolino served as a police officer for 20 years in the 41st Precinct in the south Bronx before retiring and starting a career in real estate.
“He spent the next 40 or so years running Morris Park Realty,” his brother Sam said. “He tried to help as many people as he could in that area.”
Al D’Angelo, president of the Morris Park Community Association and a fellow member of the Morris Park Kiwanis, said his earliest memory of Fasolino was when he sold him his house in Morris Park 33 years ago.
“He showed me my house and we were friends and associates ever since,” D’Angelo said. “He was very active in Morris Park and always there to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it. He will be missed.”
Fasolino was also a lifetime honorary member of the Knights of Columbus and past president of the Morris Park Kiwanis.
Fellow Kiwanian Sal Conforto said his friendship with Fasolino dates back a lifetime.
“We were on the force together, and we stayed friends after he went into real estate, so I have fond memories of him from many different walks of life,” he said. “He was a very charitable man. He was a good person and he will be very much missed.”
Fasolino is also survived by two sisters Lucy and Angie, his wife Susan, and his five children Neil, Nancy, Danielle, John and Ronnie.
