This morning in his home upstate New York, My uncle Albert Avella Jr. and the younger brother of my father Michael and my other uncle Dominic Avella passed away. Jr. as he was better known was a devoted and loving father and uncle. His love for Highpoint Garage Inc. always shinned. He & his 2 brothers built our operation from almost nothing to what it is today. He will be missed and never forgotten. Thanks and be safe everyone.... Steve Avella

Thanks again everyone... for your offerings, prayers and thoughts..... It means more than you all know..... He would be so happy to know that there are people and fellow towman that do care and respect each other... thanks again everyone
from all the Avella's and Highpoint Garage Inc.

Several local towers have asked & offered trucks for the funeral services of my uncle and past owner of Highpoint Garage Inc. Although the services will be held in Marlboro, NY (approx) 60 Miles from Union City, We had planned on sending up a Heavy Duty & a Light Duty ourselves... A few local towers asked if they to could attend. Yes by all means... it is appreciated, he would have been happy to know.... If any local operators are interested in joining in? you are by all means welcome. Any interested parties can call my office any time (201) 864-3700 ...Ask for Richard Gray... he will be handling time, meeting place and directions...... Once again, I can not emphasis enough the gratitude to everyone. Thank you seems to be just not enough..... Steven Avella

Steve, I didn't hear the news. Sorry for the loss. I was just down past your place a few weeks back in route to Elizebeth with a Tractor. Actually I also grabbed a car from you guys about a year ago, too.
I guess I never put two and two together on the name.
Anyway, my condolences on the loss. Keep your head up and carry on the name. It's the best tribute there is to someone.


Thanks Bill for the kind words.... Stay well... Steve
