Born and raised in Italy he relocated to the United States in 1977. The family originally settled in Chicago where Gaspare worked as a car body repairman for a few years. He moved to Streator in 1982 when he had the opportunity to purchase Maria’s Pizza. He has operated Anna’s Pizza (formerly Maria’s) since that time.
He is of the Catholic faith and had belonged to the former Immaculate Conception Church.
Gaspare was a hard worker who spent many hours running the Pizzeria. He did enjoy vacationing, along with his family, back to his homeland where he still maintained a home.
