Obituary for Thomas Natale Casola

Thomas Natale Casola, 93, of Cape Coral, Florida, died peacefully while in the comforting presence of his wife and family, at the home of his daughter in Ulster Park, NY on Thursday, October 8, 2020.

Heart-Breaking, but heart-warming, his wife of 64 years, followed Thomas into the hands of the Lord on Friday, October 9, 2020, also while in the comforting presence of her loving family in Ulster Park, NY.

Thomas was born in Brooklyn, New York on December 25th, 1926, a son of the late Alfonso and Vincenza (Macaluso) Casola.

Maria, also born in Brooklyn, New York, but on March 30, 1927, was a daughter of the late Victor and Lilly (DiBella) Cerami.

He was employed as an auto mechanic for the New York City Transit Authority, and his loving wife, a homemaker.

They are survived by their daughter and caretaker, Zina Matera of Ulster Park, one son, Alfonso Casola of Bellerose, NY, grandchildren, Annette Matera, Amanda Abbate, and Robert Casola, sister-in-law, Jeanette Marino, and nieces and nephews.

There are no calling hours. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held jointly, but privately, at Sacred Heart Church in Esopus, NY, Pastor Carl D, Johnson will celebrate. Burial will follow at St. Mary's Cemetery.

The family has entrusted the Gilpatric-VanVliet Funeral Home, 339 Broadway, Ulster Park, Town of Esopus, with the care and funeral arrangements for Thomas and Maria.
