Joseph S. Rosano, 94 of Wilmington Delaware, and formerly of Philadelphia, PA and the Bronx, NY, died at Foulk Manor North on Saturday, November 25, 2017. Born and raised in the Bronx, Joseph proudly served his country as a Rifleman in the Army in WWII. Joseph fought in Italy at Anzio and at Monte Cassino, where he single-handedly captured two enemy soldiers and was awarded the Bronze Star for exemplary conduct in ground combat. He was also a charter member of the National World War II Museum.
Joseph retired after a long career with the U. S. Postal Service. He was an avid sports fan, never wavering from support of all New York teams, even while living for decades in Eagles’ country. He was a lifetime bowler, with his bowling a perfect game as the highlight. He also loved to sing old ballads, and would share this hobby with many, including giving a concert for his fellow residents of Foulk Manor.
He is predeceased by his beloved wife Anna Katsoris Rosano. He is survived by his children James of Casa Grande, Arizona, Joseph of the Bronx, New York, and Susan Yeaton of Wilmington, Delaware, plus his cherished eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
A Memorial Service will be held at CHANDLER FUNERAL HOME, 2506 Concord Pike, Wilmington, Delaware on Saturday, December 9th, 2017, at 10:30. Family and friends may visit from 10:00 to 10:30 am. Interment is private.
