March 16, 2021
The boy from the post office fell in love with the girl from the bank and they lived happily together for the next sixty-seven years. Richard J. Cuneo, that boy, died at home on March 16 with his wife, Fernanda, nee Landi, at his side. Most people know them as Freddie & Dick who were long time Fair Lawn residents until retiring in Bayville. Prior to the Post Office, he worked at Wright Aeronautical Corp, and the Civilian Conservation Corps. He served as a Sergeant in the US Army Air Corps. After retiring he worked for a while at Lea & Perrins. He loved getting together with family, sharing stories, reading, traveling, and bird watching. He was an avid baseball and football fan and always enjoyed a day at the races.
He was one of Edward A. and Anna Cuneo’s six children, survived by his half-brother, Ernest, the son of Edward and Blanche Cuneo. He was a loving father to his four children: Richard V. Cuneo and his wife, Victoria, of Ringwood, NJ, Carol and her husband, Antonio Fevola of Bayville, NJ, Kathleen Cuneo also of Bayville, and Patricia Cuneo of Montoursville, PA. He was a proud grandfather to Richard P. & Victoria Cuneo, Timothy Cuneo, PhD, Alexander Cuneo, Francesco Fevola, Giovanni Fevola, and Ian Mac Lachlan. He was the fun-loving uncle to scores of nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed by family and friends alike. He has found peace.
