Cesare V. Coslop III, 67 years old, of Vineland passed away at his home on Friday, November 8 after a heroic battle with ALS "Lou Gehrig's Disease," due to Agent Orange use during the Vietnam War. He served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War where he did 2 tours of duty and received two Bronze Stars for Valor and the Meritorious Unit Commendation Ribbon. Cesare owned and operated Vineland Fence Company for over 30 years and worked for the Vineland Board of Education as a school bus driver for over 10 years. Cesare enjoyed deer hunting, especially with his son and all of his hunting buddies. He was a member of Vineland Recreation Club, The American Legion Post 4 of Vineland and the Disabled American Veterans Association. Cesare was a loving and devoted husband, father and pop-pop who loved spending time with his family. He enjoyed traveling to Cape Cod, Maine, and the casinos with his wife. Cesare was a person with a tender heart who loved life and lived everyday to the fullest. Cesare had no strangers in his life. He made friends wherever he went.
