Armand Vito Muscarello
April 10, 1928-March 28, 2018
New Windsor, NY
Armand Vito Muscarello (Meggs) passed away on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at his home in Beaver Dam Lake, New Windsor, NY with his family at his side. He was 89 years old. Son of the late Sebastiano and Maria Grace, he was born on April 10, 1928 in New York, NY. Armand was a combat veteran of the Korean War, and later retired as a cement mason, and a lifelong member of The United Cement Masons Union Local 780. After retiring, he continued in the field of construction with various side jobs upstate, and took pleasure in the outdoor maintenance of his home, the neighbor's home, and anywhere that might have sought after his meticulous attention. He was arguably best known for his unrelenting and positively driven work ethic, which people couldn't help but commend and marvel at. He took pride in his work, and the thoroughness therein, which was a trait inherent in all that he'd done, often inspiring those around him. It is no exaggeration to say the man physically worked near every day of his life until finally, and very reluctantly, 'slowing down' in his mid-80's.
Survivors include his sons Raymond Muscarello and his wife Mary Ellen of New Windsor, NY, Matthew Muscarello and his wife Michele of Staten Island, Michael Muscarello of Las Vegas, NV, his brothers, Carl Muscarello and his wife Shelly of Plantation, FL, Herby Muscarello and his wife Ann of Seaford, NY, his sisters, Celia Carrano of Queens, NY, Vera Liberatore and her husband Raymond of Del Rey, FL, his ten grandchildren, Amanda, Raymond, Jenna, Thomas, Kateri, Michael, Sandra, Sabrina, Suzanne and Matthew Muscarello and many, many nieces and nephews.
He is predeceased by his wife Annie Blue, his parents, his brother Raymond Muscarello and sisters, Gloria Bartolomeo and Nancy Albino.
