Aldo Louis Cosentino, of New Fairfield, CT, and Whitefield, NH. Passed away quietly and in comfort at the age of 89 years. It is difficult if not impossible to sum up a man's life in a few paragraphs. Aldo was born in Katonah, NY to Giovanni and Adeline (Busette) Cosentino. He married his true love Kay (Carr) Cosentino in 1951. He served in the United States Marine Corps during Korea, of which he was always quietly proud. His tremendous depth and compassion could easily be missed on account of his outward bearing and strength. Aldo worked for the telephone company, for 35 years. He was a coach, a Scout Master, and talented woodworker, designing, drafting and building two homes. Aldo retired and moved to Whitefield, NH in 1988. Aldo loved nature and the outdoors: the mountains, ocean, and bird watching. He loved fishing, camping and hiking (just a few peaks short of the '4000 footer club'). He loved coffee at the airport with his friends. Aldo loved, almost to the point of obsession, making real Italian Pizza for his friends. These meals often featured lively discussions on politics, world events, and popular culture. He never wavered (even under great pressure) from his beliefs of what was right and wrong. Aldo was predeceased by his parents, sister Josephine, brothers Salvatore and Mario. He also lost his loved son Mark Paul in 2013.
He is survived by his wife Kay of nearly 70 years, son Christopher Cosentino, daughter Linda Cosentino Brunswick, and son Keith Cosentino, 10 grandchildren (Lauren Brunswick Beaudry, Christopher Cosentino, Sara Cosentino, Cassandra Cosentino Boylan, Morghan Cosentino, Amy Brunswick DiGiovine, Shane Cosentino, Daniel Cosentino, Alexis Cosentino, and Jocelyn Cosentino), and 7 great-grandchildren.
Aldo had so many amazing, caring friends and neighbors over the years, and especially recently. Too many to attempt to mention by name. You know who you are. Our family truly appreciates all of you! Aldo recently said... "They are all angels! I wish I could repay them... but I can't. They are Angels!" Guess what dad, you did repay them, that's what makes them Angels. The family would like to have a Celebration of Life in the future. If anyone feels like doing something in his memory, buy a Vet a cup of coffee or drop off some toys or food at your local animal shelter.
