I got to chatting with folks on FB page “I Used live in Brentwood  L.I 11717 pg2 ”  about Anthony Felicio and how myself and a buddy cleared the lot in 1965 (I was 15) on Candlewood Rd. and Illinois Ave. to become the JFK Memorial Park. Here are pics and the Facebook posting I put with them:

My pal Ken Weber and I worked hard all summer of ’65, I think, clearing the bush and garbage off that lot, and seeding and planting on it. Tony Felicio arranged the financing from Brentwood to pay us and have the stone and flag installed. I’m so happy it’s still looking good.
