Robert Aristide De Lorenzo of Somers, NY, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 3rd, at the age of 89. He was born in Jamaica, Queens, on July 30, 1927; the son of Gino and Beatrice De Lorenzo. He was a proud veteran of the US Army having served during WWII. On September 25, 1954, he married the love of his life, E. Lorraine Beyer at St. Pascal Baylon Church in Hollis, Queens.

Bob and Lorraine were married for 52 years before her passing in August 2007. Bob is survived by his son Robert of Patterson, NY, and his daughters Pamela Agostino and her husband Nicola of Ridgefield, Ct; Patrice Cantone and her husband Peter of Carmel, NY; and Christine Hildrew of Mahopac, NY. He is also survived by his adoring grandchildren and great-grandchild.

Bob spent most of his professional career in the frozen food business, most notably as President of Foodways National, and Vice President of Sales for Beech-Nut Nutrition Corp. He was an avid golfer at the Mount Kisco Country Club for almost 40 years, serving as President, and given the distinction of Honorary member. He spent 50 years as an active parishioner of Saint Joseph's Church in Somers where he served as weekly lector and religious education teacher. Bob was especially known for his wonderful sense of humor, quick wit, and love of music, often recreating the sounds of Frank Sinatra when he sang. He spent many evenings and weekends watching his favorite sports teams; the NY Rangers, NY Mets, and Dallas Cowboys.

Friends and family may call on Friday, January 6th from 4-8 PM at the Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home in Mahopac. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, January 7th at 10 AM at St. Joseph's Church in Somers. Interment will follow at Ivandell Cemetery, also in Somers.
