Tommaso Montefusco, 84, went to be with the Lord on June 7, 2019. He is predeceased by his wife Maria Montefusco; parents Attore and Liberata Montefusco; Sister Marisa DeFederico. He is survived by his son Thomas (Frances) Montefusco; grandson Mathieu Montefusco; nieces, nephews and cousins especially Liberata and Amelia DeFederico; special cousin and caregiver for the past 20 years, Rosetta DeRitis. Tommaso came to this country from Italy in 1959, retired as manager from the Binghamton-Johnson City Sewage Treatment Plant. He was proud to be president of the Abbrusse Club for many years, where longtime friendships were made and stories shared. Tommaso was an avid fan of the A.C. Milan Soccer club, and the New York Yankees. He was a master cook with endless dishes; a specialty in cooking flavorful Tripe and Rabbit. He enjoyed spending countless time in Italy each year, reminiscing with family and friends in the piazza. One of his greatest joys was looking forward to the large weekly Sunday gatherings and dinners with family, where he will be greatly missed. Tommaso’s pride and joy was his grandson, Mathieu.
