Former Secaucus Mayor Paul Amico was laid to rest on Tuesday following a funeral Mass at Immaculate Conception Church.
Amico passed away last Thursday at the age of 103. He was an indelible part of the town’s history, serving as mayor from 1964-1991.
Amico moved to Secaucus from New York as a young boy and owned a local diner until he was 43 years old, when he decided to get involved in civics full time.

According to the The Jersey Journal, Amico left behind two stepsons, eight nieces and nephews, ten grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. Police and fire department vehicle lines the street outside the church during the ceremonies.
