    Our deepest sympathy to Nickie and all the Mageras family. Angelo was so helpful to us both as a neighbor in Kingspoint in the late 1980's and becoming established in the hotel and group travel business. With sincere respect, Phil Merrick & family

    This man was a great influence in my life. He gave me my first job as a "kid" busing tables at the Lobster House. His work ethic as well as his radiant smile are characteristics i will never forget. Mario, Bobby, Georgia, Debbie and Mrs. Mageras, please know how special Angelo was for both me and my brother. He will truly be missed. Greg Fernandez and family
