NEW CASTLE - Philip J. Fusco, 78, passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at the Edgewood Centre. Born in Troy, N.Y., on July 17, 1940 he was the son of Felix and Anna Fusco.

Phil joined Chem-Fab St. Gobain in 1978 and enjoyed a long career wearing many hats to include plant manager in the North Bennington facility, sales, production, manufacturing and business development. He also operated Canton Bio-Medical, near Albany NY in the late 1990's. Phil retired (for the first time) from St. Gobain in 2006.

Under sheer threat of Rita running away from home, he then joined Textiles Coated International, having retired in 2016 due to failing health. You will never meet anyone with a better work ethic or love for his fellow colleagues. He would still be working today had his health allowed.

Survivors include his wife of twenty years Rita McPhee-Fusco; children Maria Fusco and partner Thomas Vanier, Paul Fusco; grandchildren Adam Vanier, Alexandra Fusco, Corina Fusco, Sophia Fusco; great-grandchildren Jackson and Jameson; his dear "sister-cousin" Dianne Walsh; step children Kelly McPhee, Jennifer McPhee; step grandchildren Evan McPhee, Nymeria Sellers; sisters in-law Linda Zacher, Patricia Mason; many cousins; very good friends; and his beloved furry children Mason and Foxy.

The family would like to thank The Edgewood Centre, Beacon Hospice and Jaime, his Senior Helper for the wonderful care given to Philip during his lengthy illness.

SERVICES: Services will be held on Saturday, October 6, at 11 a.m., at the New Castle Congregational Church. Friends invited. Reception and a Celebration of Life to follow at the Portsmouth Yacht Club, 76 Piscataqua St., New Castle, N.H.

Memorials may be made to the NHSPCA, P.O. Box 196, Stratham, NH 03885 or to the Edgewood Centre Activities/Recreation Fund, 928 South St., Portsmouth, NH 03801. Arrangements are by the Farrell Funeral Home, 684 State St., Portsmouth, N.H.
