Long time resident of Suffern, NY, Romualdo Cogliano, 84, was called home peacefully to be with the Lord on May 4, 2020, surrounded by his family. He was born on February 7, 1936 in Fontanarosa, Italy to Giovanni and Felicia. Romualdo married the love of his life, Carmela, on February 7, 1963. He immigrated to the United States with his family in 1972.

Romualdo was a long time employee of Ciba-Geigy Pharmaceutical Company in Suffern, NY. Romualdo had a tireless work ethic and remained devoted to his family. He had an infectious personality. People enjoyed his company and always gravitated toward him. He spent much of his time volunteering for the Mahwah Elks Club where he was awarded Volunteer of the Year twice. Romualdo was also an active member of multiple senior clubs in which he had a lasting impact on others and the community. Romualdo had a passion for gardening, cooking, and spending time with his family. Making homemade wine, grappa, and tomato sauce were highly anticipated family activities.

Romualdo was preceded in death by his wife, Carmela. Romualdo is survived by his three sons, John and his wife Diane, Michael and his wife Regina, and Frank and his wife Jenny. Also surviving are his grandchildren, Carmela, Michael, Meredith, and Kimberly. He is also survived by a large extended family in Italy.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the American Heart Association or the National Kidney Foundation in his memory.

Our sincere sympathies to the Cogliano Family. We were truly sad to hear of Romualdo's passing. As neighbor from around the block, I met "Romeo" almost 20 years ago on his one of his many walks through the neighborhood. We would then meet at the gym in Torne Valley for many years and and in recent years when we walked our dog past his house. We would always enjoy our conversations with him. He was great person.

In memoria del caro zio Romualdo volevo ricordare quella settimana trascorsa insieme a Fontanarosa, a casa di mia nonna Filomena. Era il periodo della festa, fu la prima ed ultima volta che ebbi la fortuna di vederlo e conoscerlo di persona. Conservo, tuttora, un ottimo ricordo delle cene insieme a mangiare i funghi "Piscarielli" di cui era golosissimo. Ci dispiace moltissimo per la scomparsa. Vi siamo vicini.
