Gaspar Cipolla
Attended St. Agnes Sept. 11, 1934 to Dec. 24, 1938
G. Cipolla, Mr. Chip, is currently a Middle School Substitute Teacher in the Manalapan-Englishtown School District in New Jersey

Mama and Papa were born in Racalmuto, a mountain village just north of Agrigento, Sicily. I was born on Eldridge Street in Little Italy and baptized Gaspar (I like to believe after the 3rd King of the Magi) at The Church of the Nativity on the Lower East Side of New York City. We spoke only Sicilian, a dialect of Italian. It was 1934 when my mother died during child birth. I was about three and my brother Joey three years older. We were sent to St. Agnes, a home for boys in Sparkill.
