Let’s hear it for Fred

Let’s hear it for Standing O pal Fred Gammino on his 103rd birthday — that’s right folks, 103 years young and counting.

There is no slowing down for Fred, who turned the magic number on Aug. 13. He celebrated with his life partner Carmella Bombolino, and family at El Posto Restaurant on Avenue U on Aug. 10.

Standing O asked daughter Anna May Farula what she thought her dad’s secret to longevity was, “My dad is an easy going person, and doesn’t worry. I don’t remember him ever getting upset, taking life in stride.” She added, “My dad also loves to go to Atlantic City, and even though he is in a wheelchair, it doesn’t stop him at all.

Anna let Standing O in on a top secret, too! She said dad was a wireman for Sperry Gyroscope and he worked on the Nike Missile project.

Family-man Fred has four grandchildren, Anthony Farula, Camille Farula, Marisa Farula and Ann Marie Maddocks, and nine great-grandchildren Danielle, Robert, and Andrew Farula, Amanda and Philip Darling, and Amir and Zaidan Elfaham, and Nicholas and Olivia Maddocks.

Standing O wishes Fred a very happy year and can’t wait to wish him a happy 104th next August.
