CAMILLO J. TODARO (MEL), 84, went to be with the Lord on Jan. 16, 2013 after a long battle with cancer. He passed away with his family and close friends by his side. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio's East side on Sept. 13, 1928. He graduated from John Adams High School and served his country in the U.S. Army. In 1959, he moved to Akron, Ohio and opened Todaro's Imported Foods. In 1976, Mel opened and operated Todaro's Party Center. He was an integral part of his business until the end. He married Mary Alesci in 1952 and they remained inseparable until the day he passed. He was a member of the Akron's Italian American Professional Businessmen Club for years. He had an unmatched love for life, his wife, family and friends. He believed in helping less fortunate families and consistently donated to churches. His life's motto was "you gotta laugh, if you can't laugh then it's all over." He will be remembered for his jovial spirit, jokes, smile, business advice, life lessons, passion for food and his celebration of life.
