Obituary for Gandolfo "Dolph" Corradino

Gandolfo Dolph Corradino, 81, of Naples, Florida, formerly of Little Falls, New Jersey, passed away on Tuesday, March 30th, 2021.

Dolph was born on June 22, 1939 to Jennie and Jack Corradino in Passaic, New Jersey. His professional life is one to admire, examine, and be exceptionally proud of. Dolph graduated from Seton Hall University’s undergraduate program, and continued to graduate from Seton Hall’s Law School, and became a special guest lecturer in Judge Ciolino's Trial Practice Course. He was admitted to the bar in 1966. Dolph was in private practice for 48 years and specialized in trial litigation in criminal, family, and corporate law. He was appointed as Little Falls municipal judge in 1993, and in 2006 he was appointed as presiding judge of Passaic County vicinage municipal courts. In 2015, Dolph fully retired and decided to escape the cold winters of New Jersey, and relocate to the sunshine state of Florida.

Dolph was passionate about many things in life. He was a two-time NJ State Golden Gloves boxing champion, an international big-game hunter, and a connoisseur of fine cigars. He took great pleasure in traveling the world, sampling wines at a plethora of vineyards, re-watching cinematic classics, and partaking in competitive games of golf all alongside his faithful wife.

Above all, Dolph took great pride in and enjoyed spending time with his growing family. He was a loving and devoted husband to his wife Desiree Corradino, a caring and thoughtful father to his children, Gina Hanley, Jack Corradino, Michael Corradino and his fiancée Ana Gancheva, Stephanie Cusumano and her husband Leonardo Cusumano, Jr., Anthony Maietta and his wife Leslie Maietta, and Alexa Curcio, adored grandfather by his grandchildren, Richie, Nick, Anthony, and Brielle Hanley, Rocco and Lucas Cusumano, Morrison, Raven, and Winter Maietta, and a protective and supportive brother to his sisters, Nicoletta “Letty” Conte and her husband Dr. Patrick Conte, and Maryann Corradino.
