On Saturday, December 1, 2018, Philip Cuttone, a man with gratitude in his heart and wisdom in his soul, passed away at the age of 89. Phil as everyone called him, was born on April 8, 1929 in Brooklyn, NY to Vito and Jenny. He was appointed to the NYPD On May 1, 1952. Phil was mounted for part of his career with the NYPD and proudly rode “Horse Cuttone” at some memorable assignments. On April 27, 1958 he married the love of his life, Helen Dorenzo, they made a striking couple. They were excited to welcome their little girl Gina into the fold in 1965. Phil went on to accomplish many things in his life, but his proudest accomplishment was raising his little girl, when he was widowed in 1969. Phil was a man with a joy for life, regardless of circumstances. He was a light everywhere he went, with his big smile and innate compassion for people. Everyone he came into contact with was drawn to him. There are no words to express how much he will be missed.

Known to many as Uncle Vito, you were an amazing man who always had a smile and would do anything to help someone no matter how you yourself were feeling. You were the life of the party at all of our parties. I know none of us will ever forget the party you showed up to in your white pants! When Heather and I were little, you always gave us Geoffrey Dollars for Christmas and our Birthday. You spent a lot of time at the Nanuet Mall walking your laps and if we happened to run in to you, you would wave and say I can't stop! Then you met your companion Josie. You both were always together and so sweet. You were a renaissance man, from working as a cop to later being a school bus driver and working for Lederle where you met my mom and became our Uncle Vito! I am so happy that Reagan and Brayden got to meet you even if they only got to know you for a short time. As you always signed all of your cards, God Bless!
