In memory of
Oscar Francis Fissore
Oscar Francis Fissore, 100 Oscar Francis Fissore, 100, loving father and grandfather, passed away peacefully in his Staten Island home on Aug. 22, 2019. He was born on April 6, 1919, in Manhattan. A graduate of Xavier High School in New York and alumnus of Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey, Oscar held memberships in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers as well as the Knights of Columbus. He worked many years as a senior project manager designing and supervising the engineering, construction and cost control on multi-million-dollar Coke Oven projects. Oscar's engineering skills and "love of fixing" are evident in all the improvements he made to his home throughout his life. Oscar was happily married to Gloria (née Fornari) Fissore for over 71 years. After marrying, they moved to their home on Richmond Road where they raised their two children, Mark Fissore and Dorothy (Fissore) LaRussa and welcomed their grandchildren, Sam and Caitlin LaRussa and Faith Rosen. Together, Oscar and Gloria enjoyed gardening, attending plays, summer vacations fishing and water skiing in Greenport L.I., winter retreats in Florida and hosting annual New Year's Day parties - all in all, thoroughly enjoying their life together. Oscar Fissore is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Mark and Trish Fissore; son-in-law, Phil LaRussa, and grandchildren, Sam LaRussa, Caitlin LaRussa and Faith Rosen. He was loved by all and will be dearly missed. The memorial service will be held at St. Ann's Church, Dongan Hills, S.I., on Sept. 12 at 6 p.m.
