Anthony C. “Buddy” Cuzzolino, age 73 years, of Kingwood Township, NJ, died on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital-Somerset, Somerville, NJ.
Born in Newark, NJ, May 14, 1944, this city boy, the first son of Anthony and Julia Quagliato Cuzzolino, known to his friends as, “Buddy”, always yearned for the open spaces of the countryside.
First moving to the suburbs of Fanwood, NJ for over thirty years, he worked in the field of printing and graphic arts as one of the pioneers in four color printing. Still though, he longed for more space.
After retiring, Buddy moved to Tyler Hill, PA where he enjoyed being a Farmer, managing twenty-seven acres for the past ten years.
He was an avid collector and took pride in the items he had acquired through the years and was always more than happy to show them off and tell you about them.
Surviving are his son, Anthony Cuzzolino III and his wife, Tina; a daughter, Laurie Cuzzolino and David Frasier; his beloved grandchildren, Anthony “AJ” Cuzzolino, Adam Cuzzolino and Jenna Rose Bush; his sister, Dolores O’Neil; his brother, John Cuzzolino and wife, Donna; a nephew, Sean O’Neil and wife, Debbie and their children, Aidan and Mackenzie.
