MILWAUKEE — A beloved figure of Milwaukee's East Side has died.

95-year-old Eddie Glorioso, a 'founding father' of Glorioso's Italian Market on Brady Street passed away early Monday, the company announced on Facebook.

"We cannot quantify the amount of spirit that he put into our community. We love you Eddie," the post says.

The family did not release any plans for funeral arrangements.

Known for their Mediterranean style deli, the local Italian market has been serving customers for generations.

The family opened the acclaimed grocery store on E. Brady and N. Astor streets in 1946.
