Obituary

Vincent Foscaldi, 85, passed away on Sunday, July 14th in his Pleasantville home. He is survived by his life partner Kathleen Dunne, and his daughters Lisa Fiore and Linnae Latessa. Vincent was born January 24, 1934 in the Bronx, NY. He was a graduate of Evander Childs High School, veteran of the US Army, and a lifelong entrepreneur. After starting his career at Gristede Brothers, where he became one of the youngest managers, he founded Rivercrest Food Market, in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, with his partner, Dominic Trentadue. As the owner and proprietor of Rivercrest for 34 years he was an icon in the Riverdale community. In addition to being beloved by his customers, he touched the lives of many of the young men and women that worked for him. He enjoyed having his family work with him at the store, and his employees became part of his extended family along the way. Vincent was a kind and generous man and when someone was in need he was the first to quietly offer aid.
Vincent was a baseball aficionado his whole life. Aside from his dream of owning his own business, his other dream in life was to play second base for the Brooklyn Dodgers. He started as a player/coach in the local softball business league. In 1988, he fulfilled part of his dream by attending the Mets Fantasy Camp, where he was able to compete with Major League players. From there, he played for the Westchester Mets in the Men’s Senior Baseball League, and went on to be an assistant baseball coach at Fieldston High School and Westchester Community College. His love for the game translated into many lifelong friends.
After retiring from Rivercrest, he and Kathleen traveled around the world including trips inside the US, Europe, and the Caribbean. He is survived by the mother of his children Jill Foscaldi, his brother Louis Foscaldi and his wife Arlene. In addition to his daughters, he is survived by his sons-in-law Paul Fiore and Joseph Latessa, and his four grandsons, Jason, Tyler, Austin and Weston, his step son Colin Fernandez, and his two nephews Louis Jr. and Michael Foscaldi. He will also be missed by Kathleen's siblings: Eileen Dunne, Roberta and Robert Driscoll, and Christine and Tim Landry. The family will receive friends at the Beecher Flooks Funeral Home in Pleasantville on Wednesday from 7 – 9 PM and Thursday from 2 – 4 & 7 – 9 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday at Holy Innocents R.C. Church at 10:00 AM. Entombment will follow at Ferncliff Mausoleum.

He loved his daughters and his 4 wonderful grandsons so much! He helped shape the boys into the fine men they are and are becoming through his love for baseball that he past on to them. They will go on to make him proud. We will all miss him.

I have so my wonderful memories of my Uncle Vinny...whether helping out at his grocery store with my cousins (no better times!), sitting in his backyard in Yonkers, celebrating the Holidays with he, Aunt Jill and my cousins., or simply laying in bed during a sleepover and hearing him SNORE from downstairs! He always had a smile on his face, and would give you the shirt off of his back. From what I always observed, as well, he was the best grandfather! Rest in peace Uncle Vinny. Love Scott
