My deepest sympathy and condolences to the Fusco Family. I knew Charlie from Com Ed and he was a wonderful, kind man. The world is not as good of a place now without Charlie, but Heaven is a better place! He will be missed.

I read of Chuck's death in the paper. The family, the Catholic Church and our world have lost a good man. Chuck was an early and enthused supporter of St Terrence and always kind and gracious to me, Be assured of my prayers for family and friends.

Kathy, Sue and Mike, so sorry to hear about your Dad. I certainly would have gone for the visitation had I known. I just read about it. My deepest sympathy to all of you and your family.

The last time I saw your Mom and Dad was at Mike's memorial.

Your Dad will always be in your heart!

Incredibly grateful for the open arms when we arrived with Khole at his front door on one of our road trips and made sure to have enough food ;). His quiet behind the scenes kindness of keeping the newspaper with my name in it when I ran the Chicago Marathon ( I still have it and think of him every time I see it) His love for his family & most of all his love for his love. May they dance together forever, hand in hand. RIP within the gates of heaven with all those that have been waiting for you 💜

To the family:
My deepest condolences.
To coin a phrase, those were the days my friend.
Lots of kids around & everyone was everyone’s parents. So many eyes on us ; )
We grew as the many trees on the block grew.
The house on Springfield has always been Fusco’s house no matter who lived there.
I’m not sure if I can attend the services but you are all in my thoughts & prayers.
Loss is terrible but memories do sustain you. Keep each other close. I’m sure he was proud of each of you.
