WWII Navy Fireman 1st Class Angelo M. Gabriele, 21, of Trenton, New Jersey, killed during World War II, was accounted for on Sept. 13, 2018.

Angelo Michael Gabriele, age 21, of Trenton, NJ, was killed in action on Dec. 7, 1941 in the attack on Pearl Harbor, while serving in the U.S. Navy aboard the U.S.S West Virginia.
He was born in Trenton and attended Trenton High School.
Gabriele, a U.S. Navy fireman from Trenton, was aboard the USS West Virginia on Dec. 7, 1941. The battleship was moored at Ford Island in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii when Japanese aircraft attacked, hitting the ship with multiple torpedoes.
The crew worked to prevent capsizing and the ship came to rest on the harbor floor, but not without loss: 106 crewmen died, including Gabriele.
His sister, Mae Gabriele Maffezzoli, told The Times of Trenton in 1999 that her brother went down trapped in the engine room. But the family never saw a body, and her mother refused to accept it. Angelo had been promising he’d be home for Christmas.
“We lost a good brother that day,” said Maffezzoli, who died in 2012. “My God, he was a great brother.”
The Navy later recovered remains of at least 66 service members from the battleship.
It turns out, the Department of Defense, that Angelo was interred as an unknown at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (also called the Punchbowl) in Honolulu.
The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency disinterred 35 caskets from the cemetery between June and October 2017. With a mix of dental analysis, evidence and mitochondrial and Y-chromosome DNA tests, scientists identified Gabriele in the remains.
Son of the late Matteo and Maria (Migliaccio) Gabriele and brother of the late Josephine DiPietro, Leonard Gabriele and Mae Maffezzolli, he is survived by four nephews, Peter DiPietro of Ewing, NJ, Angelo Gabriele and Leonard Gabriele, both of Morrisville, PA, and Dennis Maffezzoli of Port St. Lucie, FL, a great nephew Michael Gabriele and two great nieces Lisa Goldschmidt and Susan Garhart.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend his funeral service at 12:30 PM on Monday, June 24, 2019 at the J. Allen Hooper Funeral Chapel, 41 W. Trenton Ave., Morrisville, PA. His interment with military honors will follow at 2 PM at Washington Crossing National Cemetery.
Friends may call that morning from 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM at the funeral chapel.
