God decided that Heaven needed to be painted, so he called our father, Louis E. DeSocio (Parkside Painting), on Friday morning, February 22, 2013, at 8:30 AM, to do the job.  Dad had advanced Parkinson’s and was living at Manor Care Nursing Facility in Mountainside for the past two years.  For the past six months he was under Hospice care.  His wife, Teresa DeSocio, predeceased him on November 16, 2011.  He is survived by sons, John & Louis DeSocio,  daughters: Ermalinda D’Ulisse, Paula Dickerson, Edith Samuellian, and MaryAnn Lotito, grandchildren:  Allen Knee, Elizabeth Williams, Mary Fitch, Raymond D’Ulisse, Amy Martel, John Paul D’Ulisse, Amanda Arciero, Cara Marie Badalamenti, and Michael Badalamenti, and great-grandchildren:  Rachel, Kelly, Raymond, Adam, Bethany, Meghan, Nicole, and Matthew.

For those wishing to celebrate his life there will be a memorial service at Costello-Runyon Funeral Home, 568 Middlesex Avenue, Metuchen, NJ, on Wednesday, February 27, 2013, from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.  Directions:  take Garden State Parkway South, get off at exit 131, Iselin, turn right onto Route 27 South for about 2.6 miles.  Funeral Home is on your right.  As soon as you see their sign turn right onto William Street.  Entrance is on left.  For more directions go to their website:  Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the National Parkinson’s Foundation, Gift Processing Center, PO Box 5018, Hagerstown, MD 21741-5018.
