Giuseppe Fusco, 84, Jefferson Township died Tuesday, October 19, at Mountain View Care and Rehabilitation Center, Scranton, PA.
Born in Termini Imerese, Sicily, he was the youngest son of Cosima and Giuseppe Fusco. He immigrated to the United States in 1966 where he met his wife of 54 years. Giuseppe was a hardworking man who worked at Williams Bakery when he first moved to Scranton before spending over 20 years with Giant Markets until the stores closed. He spent several years working for Maid-Rite before retiring. Never one for idle time, he then worked for several years at Gertrude Hawk Chocolates.
Giuseppe was an avid vegetable gardener whose patience and nurturing were always rewarded by a bountiful harvest. He was also a devoted family man and his greatest joy was spending time with his grandchildren. He was a generous man who was giving of time and talents to those he loved. He will be missed.
Giuseppe is survived by his wife, Domenica Fusco (née Vitarisi). Also surviving are two daughters, Sina Kniseley and her husband Richard, Crofton, MD, and Maria Scheller and her husband Jason, Arlington, VA, as well as six grandchildren.
