Rudolph J. "Rudy" Quarteroni

Rudolph J. "Rudy" Quarteroni, 74, a resident of Levittown and formerly a local resident, passed away Aug. 7, 2013, following a brief illness.

Born in Kingston on July 2, 1939, he was a son of the late Rudolph and Leona (Kovalik) Quarteroni. He spent his early years in Luzerne and graduated from St. Nicholas High School, class of 1957, where he was a member of the varsity basketball team. He also attended Penn State University at the Wilkes-Barre campus.

Rudy moved to the Levittown area, where he was employed by the Burroughs Corp. and, later, by Penn-Jersey Business Machines, Morrisville. For the past 18 years, he was employed by Newtown Office Supply as a manager in the furniture division, where he designed and installed office arrangements.

He spent most of his spare time doing home improvement and remodeling projects, both of which he truly enjoyed and at which he was highly proficient.

Together with his wife, Rosemary, he traveled on many occasions, including trips to Australia, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Rudy had a wonderful sense of humor and will be remembered as someone who always cared for others rather than himself. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

Surviving are his wife, Rosemary, Levittown; son, Randy Quarteroni, Mesa, Ariz.; granddaughter, Melissa Quarteroni, New York City; grandson, Randy Quarteroni Jr., serving with the U.S. Air Force; sisters, Rosalie Epstein (Myron), Boynton Beach, Fla.; Janice Miller, Kingston; niece, Maria Peterson (Christopher), New York City.

Funeral services and a celebration of Rudy's life were held Tuesday in Penndel.
