As a young child I spent a lot of time at the Yamello's house. Gary was and still is one of my closest friends, more like brothers. Since I was at their house so often I had always considered the Yamellos extended family and Mr. Yamello was like a second father. I loved going over to their house especially when Mr. Yamello was watching over the sauce and meatballs cooking in the kitchen. As we all know Mr. Yamello always held his cards close to his chest and had a great poker face and for a young kid he could come off as being somewhat intimidating. One day I showed up at the house, Mr. Yamello was watching over the sauce and meatballs on the stove. The food smelled amazing, I couldn't wait to dive into it! Gary and I get called into the Kitchen and Mr. Yamello proclaims 'Maggio, you two goons are eating Prison Food Tonight' and he puts a bowl of water and a hunk of bread out in front of us and walks out of the Kitchen. I laugh out loud everytime I think about it. They don't make men like Mr. Yamello anymore and I for one feel extremely blessed to have had him and the entire Yamello family in my life. I have very fond memories of him and he will be forever remembered in my heart. My Heartfelt Condolences and Love to All as we remember a Great Man.

I was sad to hear of the passing of a Law Enforcement legend of the West Long Branch Police Department. I must share a story about Ralph that I tell almost everyone at one time or another. I was 18 years old in June of 1978 and reporting for duty for the first day as a Patrolman of the West Long Branch Police Department. Now mind you I was so young I couldn't even figure out how to get my gun out of my holster let alone shoot it. Well, I was assigned to Captain Yamello once I reported to headquarters. He immediately told me " kid never forget you're first call". Then he directed me to get in his police cruiser and sit on the passenger side. I asked him where we were going and he replied "to your first call". I was so excited thinking I was going on a call of something juicy, you know fight, fire, accident etc... I became very disappointed when there were no overhead lights on, no siren. Nothing.... You can only imagine where he took me?? Apparently, the day before an elderly couple had been in a motor vehicle accident ans as a result there car was towed. He made me go to their house, take a grocery order, shop it for them then deliver it. That's the type of person Ralph Yamello was. Kind hearted, sincere, honest and caring. May he rest in peace. I'll miss him and tell this story forever. Fondly, former Patrolman, Tom Manzo
