Rosario “Ross” Cerminaro 80, Jessup, died Sunday afternoon at home following
an illness. His wife of 58 years is Darlene Nick Cerminaro.
Born in Carbondale, he was the son of the late Joseph and Antoinette Colandro
Cerminaro and was a graduate of Carbondale High School Class of 1957.
Following graduation, Ross enlisted in the u.s. Marine Corps and upon returning
from his service duty he was employed by Gasparini Construction Company.
He began his career as an insurance representative· with MetLife, then with
Alberigi Insurance, and prior to his retirement, he worked for the Price
Insurance Company in Carbondale.
A member of the St. Ubaldo Society where he served as past president as well
as past horseman on St. Ubaldo Day, he belonged to the Family of St. Anthony.
Ross was a loving husband, father, and grandfather who would do anything for
anyone in need. He enjoyed the outdoors, especially hunting & fishing, and
his leisurely visits to the casinos. He loved relaxing at home with his cup
of coffee and watching Jeopardy. Ross will always be remembered as the man
in town with the big smile on his face, wearing either his fedora hat, or
the Russian fur hat, and always having a cigar in his mouth.
Also surviving are his son Rosario F. Cerminaro and his wife Veronica, Archbald;
a grandson Gregory Allan, Kingston; two brothers: Joseph J. Cerminaro, NC,
and Santo Cerminaro, Carbondale; an aunt Pauline Cerminaro, and nieces,
nephews, and cousins.
He was also preceded in death by 2 sisters: Carmella Gerchman and Jane Moran;
3 brothers: Frank, Anthony, and James Cerminaro; and a brother-in-law Ray Nick.
Graveside services and interment in St. John's Cemetery, Jessup.
Arrangements by the Arthur A. Albini Funeral Home, 1003 Church St., Jessup.
