Adoring grandfather of Nicholas, Lexi, and Daniel Palazzo, Adrianna and Gianna Hortas, Giovanni and Alessio Siano, and Gennaro Alessandro Palazzo. Born in Gela, Sicily, Italy on October 3, 1936, to the late Giuseppe and Nunziata (Nastasi) Palazzo. He lived in Italy before immigrating to the United States and residing in North Haledon, then Paterson before moving to Totowa. He began learning his trade as a tailor at the age of 14 in Italy. He would go on to hone his skill leading to a successful and well-respected career in his profession both by his peers and customers alike that spanned seven decades. When he came to the United States, he became a partner with his brother-in-law at a coat factory in Paterson. Shortly after, he opened up his own business, Ital Moda By Alex's Men Shop. Originating in Lake Hiawatha, it was eventually located in Parsippany before finally relocating to Livingston where it has been for the last 30 years. Mr. Palazzo enjoyed life with his family and friends whether it was one of the many vacations he took his wife and children on, doting over his grandchildren or spending time with old friends reminiscing about the old days. He also enjoyed his coffee at the local Roma Club of Paterson and San Remo of Totowa. Always on the go, Mr. Palazzo never took life for granted and lived it to the fullest. He was always a gentleman and showed kindness to others. He was the dear brother of Giuseppina Palazzo (Barchini), Salvatore Palazzo, Manuela Palazzo (Domicoli), Tina Palazzo (Grasso) and Concetta Palazzo (Placente) and was predeceased by Liborio Palazzo, Gina Palazzo (Corallo), Rosaria Palazzo (Limonda), Marco Palazzo and Luigi Palazzo.
