Lino Queirolo, 86 of Montvale, New Jersey passed away on Wednesday June 30th, 2021. He was the loving son of the late Oscar and Fanny Queirolo. Cherished husband of 63 years to the late Renata LaFata Queirolo. Loving father of Michael and his wife, Karen of Waldwick, NJ and daughter, Daniela and her husband, James Worthington of Montvale, NJ. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Stephanie Singer and her husband, Andrew, Kimberly Oller and her husband, Kevin, Ashley Gilsenan and her husband, Kevin, Ryan and Michael Worthington, and great granddaughter Audrey Oller. He also leaves behind his brother Giorgio and his wife Vittoria, and his sisters Maria Grazia and Maria Teresa, and many extended family members too numerous to mention. Renata and Lino were an inseparable pair, happiest when surrounded by their loving family, especially during their many family adventures.
Lino was born in Genoa, Italy in 1935 and immigrated to the United States, settling in Cliffside Park, NJ with his family in 1966. Lino came to America with visions of becoming a HAM radio operator, sailing his own boat, owning his own restaurant, and most importantly, creating the opportunity for his family to thrive in America. He accomplished all that and more. Lino began his restaurant career in the 50’s and 60’s working as a waiter on Italian cruise ships. Following a career in premier restaurants in both New York and New Jersey, he invested in Ristorante Nanni in Rochelle Park New Jersey in 1988 where he enjoyed serving a respected clientele until most recently. His gracious and jovial personality will be missed by many friends and acquaintances.
The family will receive friends and family on Friday from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Vander Plaat Funeral Home, www.vpfh.com, 257 Godwin Avenue, Wyckoff, NJ.
