HOPEWELL JUNCTION – Vito J. Navarro, 80, a resident of the Hudson Valley since 1965, died on September 20, 2019 at Castle Point VA Medical Center.

Born in the Bronx on August 19, 1939, he was the son of the late Gaetano and Ernestina (Cecere) Navarro. Vito proudly served in the US Army and was stationed in Korea. He was a hard-working man who spent his career as a contractor and driver for various companies including Crown Gas and First Student Bus Company.

Vito was an avid fan of the NY Yankees and Giants who also liked painting. A proud “Leo”, he collected lion memorabilia. Most of all, he will be remembered by all who knew him as the “Life of the Party” and was a friend to all. Most of all, he loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them.

On February 21, 1965 at St. Francis de Rome Church in the Bronx, he married Barbara Torrente Navarro who survives at home. He is also survived by his children, Nicole Audia and her husband Chris of Union Vale, Devon Navarro of Union Vale, Jonas Navarro and his wife Macon of New Paltz, and Morgan Navarro and her partner Jesse Burns of Glenham; his grandchildren, Abbie, Olivia, Callie, Xylie, Rayna, Isla, and Silas Vito; his sisters, Norma Aurigemma and her husband Marty and Patricia Casatelli; his sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Carole and Warren Carroll and Elaine and Eddie Hutchinson; and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. In addition to his parents, Vito was also predeceased by his brother-in-law, Hank Casatelli.

Calling hours will be held on Wednesday from 4-8 pm at the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc., 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction followed by military honors at 8pm conducted by the US Army Honor Guard. A funeral service will be held on Thursday at 11 am at the funeral home.

Dear Navarro Family,
I have just read about Vito’s passing in the paper. I had to reach out and send my condolences. My Dad, Joe Kasak and Vito were good friends. I would often run into Vito around town over the years and always loved catching up with him. He loved to tell me all about his kids,grandchildren, and Barbara. He was truly a light every time I saw him! I’m hoping that Vito and my Dad are in Heaven together, sharing a drink and having some laughs. Sending you hugs and love at this difficult time. Warmly, Suzanne Gale

Dearest Navarro Family;
Let me offer my deepest condolences to all.
This is extremely difficult as we all feel the
pain of this loss. Therefore, let me offer some
intimate thoughts I had with Vito.

Dear Vito,
There is so much sorrow in my heart for your passing
that has affected me like few before.
I always felt that maybe, with a little bit of luck, you
would have survived this life challenge a bit longer.
However, as we now know, God had other plans!
I want you to know that you were the third brother
I never had.
You were special!
May you finally rest in peace!
Vito, I love you!
Many prayers, Mertz!
( I Never knew why you called me that; then again,
maybe you didn’t know either)!!
P.S. Hold that string TAUT ‘til I get there !!!!

I first met Vito back in 1970 when I was living in Millbrook, NY. I immediately took to this crazy, funloving, full of life, incredible human being and we soon became good friends. Through the years that followed, life took us both in different directions, and though our paths did not cross often, I would always wonder what Vito was "up to" and how he was doing. However, when we finally did meet up again, we simply just picked up where we had left off. I will remember this wonderful man with great affection, and I extend my sincere & heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace Vito, knowing that you were loved by many and will be dearly missed.
