Cosmo was born Sept. 30, 1929, in New York, N.Y., one of 12 children born to Cosmo and Louisa (Yezza) Del Carpine. He grew up in New York City and after high school he worked for a short-time in a print shop silk screening before serving our country proudly from 1951 to 1953 during the Korean War. After his return and honorable discharge, he married Theresa Focarile and they were blessed with two children. Cosmo started working for the New York City Transit Authority, where he worked for 25 years until retiring in 1988. While in New York, he was active in the Boy’s Club of New York as a youth and later as a supporter.
Cosmo and Theresa moved in 1988 to Orlando, Fla., where they lived for 28 years until moving to Hood River in 2015. He loved his sports, playing when he was younger and later watching … especially his New York Giants! If it wasn’t sports on TV it was FOX News. But above all he loved his family and any opportunity to be with them.
Cosmo is survived by his wife, Theresa Del Carpine, of Hood River, two sons, Michael (and wife, Anne) Del Carpine of Fort Meyers, Fla., and Antonio “Tony” (and wife, Melissa) Del Carpine of Hood River, granddaughter, Samantha (and husband, David) Phillips of Jefferson, Ore., and grandson Zachary Del Carpine of Hood River, and sister, Helen Del Carpine of Morristown, N.J. He was preceded in death by his parents and 10 siblings.
Arrangements are under the direction of Anderson’s Tribute Center (Funerals • Receptions • Cremations), 1401 Belmont Ave., Hood River, OR 97031.
