MILWAUKEE-It wasn't easy, but workers at Glorioso's Italian Market continued to work shortly after hearing the news that founder Joe Glorioso had died at 91.

"He didn't know what he did for people and how many people loved him," employee Karen Caskinete told CBS 58 News, "There's going to be a lot of people sad."

Back in 1946, Joe and his brothers helped establish the market on Brady Street.

In 2011, it moved to a bigger building across the street.

"He loved his family tremendously," recalled son Felice Glorioso, "He never really turned somebody down if they needed something."
