Pompeo and his young pregnant bride came to America by boat in 1956, moved into his parent's home in Brighton, and immediately began working the next day as a landscaper. Weeks later he got a job as a mason to practice the trade he began to learn at a trade school in his native Italy. He mastered the craft and became a skilled brick and stone mason. In addition to working for years as a commercial mason, he left his mark by volunteering his craft to many family and friends and was always happiest with a tool in his hand. He was a self-made success who worked day and night to provide a better life for his family than he had as a young man in Italy. He loved his home-made wine, good food, and being surrounded by his family.
