Cesar G. Rospigliosi, of Archbald, died Wednesday at Regional Hospital, of Scranton.
Born in Callao, Peru on Feb. 3, 1943, son of the late Juan and Maria Consuelo Rospigliosi Yengle, he was educated in Peru and immigrated to New York City in the 60’s. Cesar worked as a machinist at General Dynamics before his retirement.
Early in his life, he was married to Sandra Truax Rospigliosi, a lifelong friend, and briefly to Myrtle Graff.
Surviving are his sons, Cesar Rospigliosi, New York; Dennis Rospigliosi, Kingston; Matthew Morgan, Georgia; granddaughters, Valerie and Nina Rospigliosi; great-grandsons, Nathan and Lukas Yurkin; sisters, Florelena and Teresa Rospigliosi, and Victoria Posloncec, all of Scranton; and many nieces and nephews.
He was also preceded in death by his brothers, Roberto and Juan Rospigliosi, and long-time companion, Janice Munley.
A self-made man, fiercely independent, Cesar was a skilled handyman, hunter, amateur inventor and frequent performer. He found pleasure by giving of himself generously and often. He enjoyed singing, dancing, and entertaining everyone around him. In later years, whenever he could, he sang karaoke and handed out CDs he autographed as gifts.
He was also a talented artist and often sketched on-the-spot portraits, which he signed before giving them away. His humor and storytelling were famous. In any group, he was the life of the party and instinctively knew how to make people feel welcome and as if they belonged. His generous spirit touched the lives of people he knew for many years and even those he had recently met. A loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, he will be deeply missed.
Visitation with the family will be on Tuesday from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 125 N. Main Ave., Scranton, followed by a blessing service by the Rev. Francis Landry, C.P., at 7 p.m. and a celebration of Cesar’s life.
