Fred & Arthur Rossomando
   Posted Sun January 05, 2014
With deepest sympathy, Art and I would like to extend our sympathy to the Rossomando family. We are the sons of Art and Carmella Rossomando and Fred was our 2nd cousin. He was wonderful man and remained friends with our mom, Carmella for many years. He also was a dedicated and loved educator, and because Art and I were also in the education field, the paths of many our students and parents of those students crossed many times. Several years ago, Fred was honored at the 50th Reunion at Quinnipiac University and I was directing the QU Singers at that time. I saw Fred and it was a terrific event.
Again, our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in Fred's family.

Fred & Art Rossomando
