5 of 5 Error in Date of Birth July 27, 2023
Reviewer: Michael DeFilippo from [email protected]  
I am no relation to Mr. DeFilippo. Just happened to be doing some research on my father who has the same name. I noticed that the DOB of 12/6/1930 was erroneously stated as 5/5/1915 in the written obituary. This caught my attention because I thought not only did he live to be 100, but he died on his 100th birthday. Seemed fascinating until I saw the mistake.
