Obituary of Robert D'Addario
Roberto “Bob” D’Addario, of Madison, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, November 24, 2018 peacefully at home. He was 90.
Bob was born in Astoria, Queens on August 27, 1928 to the late Roberto and Antonia D’Addario. He was raised in Astoria and in 1961 he married his beloved wife and best friend, Ethna D’Addario (nee Callan). The couple moved to Montclair where they lived for a time before moving to Lake Hiawatha. In 1968 they settled in Cedar Knolls where they raised their family, before moving to Madison in 2001 where they have lived since.
Bob had a long career as a bartender and he thoroughly enjoyed the fellowship and good laughs he had over the years with his patrons. Bob enjoyed closely following the stock market, even up until very recently. He was an avid reader on many historical subjects, enjoyed watching old movies, fishing, cooking and gardening. His absolute pride was in his cherished family, especially his grandchildren who he adored tremendously and they will always remember his kind smile, gentle voice, and his floppy hat.
In addition to his parents, Bob was predeceased by his brother, Italo (Bill) D’Addario and another brother who died in infancy. He is survived by his beloved wife of 57 years, Ethna D’Addario (nee Callan) of Madison; one son, Robert Joseph D’Addario and his wife, Karen of Madison; two daughters, Anna Maria D’Addario of Hammonton & Linda Patricia Rubinaccio and her husband, Anthony of Rockaway; his sisters, Irma Borys, Aida Romeo, Gina Spaziante and her husband, Michael; one brother Ben D’Addario and his wife, Jean; nine cherished grandchildren, Christina Downes, Cara Rubinaccio, Lianna Rubinaccio, Robert D’Addario, John (Jack) D’Addario, Amanda D’Addario, Kaylie Rubinaccio, Grace Roeder & Declan Roeder; and an abundance of loving nieces and nephews.
