The Arc Remembers Antonio Barbalace

April 4th, 2018

Antonio Barbalace joined The Arc of Essex County in 2002 when he enrolled in the Special Young Adults Day Program in Nutley.  Throughout his 16 years with The Arc, he formed a great bond with his fellow Day Program attendees and staff with whom he would enthusiastically share photos of his family and friends as well as the Italian newspaper picked up daily from the local candy shop.  Antonio loved community outings especially trips to the local Shop Rite, bowling alley, and the dollar store.
