He was born March 5, 1944 in Poughkeepsie. He is the son of the late Rose (Berardi) and the late Frank Aiello Sr. He was the owner of A & P Home Improvement. He was a local resident all his life and was a graduate of Poughkeepsie High School. He was a member of the Full Gospel Church in Lagrangeville and a member of Crum Elbow Rod and Gun Club. 

His love for family was the center of his life. His other love was hunting. He was an excellent marksman. He shot a pope and young class buck and held the Dutchess county record for several years. He passed this tradition on to his grandson, where they hunted together for many years, making a very special bond. He was an entrepreneur and was a master finished carpenter. He was an excellent artist and loved to draw and paint. He can do anything with his hands from drawing on a piece of paper to creating something out of wood. He was truly a talented man. 

He is survived by his wife, Linda J. (Lane) Aiello; his daughter and son in-law, Michelle and Dave Ciferri; grandchildren, Jacquelyn Chamberlain and her husband Adam, Jillian Ciferri, and Anthony Ciferri. 

He was predeceased by his brothers, John Aiello, and Louis Aiello.
