CUSOLITO, Robert Anthony Age 85, of Tewksbury, passed away on Tuesday, April 6 after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease. He was the loving husband of Mary Rita (Roy) Cusolito. He was born in Winchester, MA on March 13, 1936 and was the son of the late Felix Cusolito and the late Rose (Camuso) Cusolito. He was raised and educated in Medford and graduated from Medford High School with the Class of 1954. He never forgot his strong Medford roots and where he came from. After High School, Robert enlisted in the United States Navy and served on the USS Salem until his honorable discharge in 1959. He was a longtime Tewksbury resident and was a communicant of St. Williams Church. He was employed with the US Post Office and was proud to serve as the Vice President of the Local 301 Mail Handlers Union, where he built a friendship with all who knew him. Robert loved traveling, especially cruising in his later years. He also spent many winters in Naples, FL with his wife, sister, cousins and many friends. But his true love was spending time with family, especially his 4 grandchildren. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his children Robert L. Cusolito and his wife Sandra of Newmarket, NH, Paul A. Cusolito of Tewksbury, MA and Linda M. Whalen and her husband Christopher of Billerica, MA, his grandchildren Daniel Cusolito of Somerville, Jason Cusolito of Boston and Michael and Ryan Whalen, both of Billerica.

Mr. Cusolito,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the USN during the Cold War as a crewmember on the heavy cruiser USS Salem(CA-139). Millions of Americans slept safe at night because you and your fellow Servicemen stood ready to defend our Country. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
