Obituary

Samuel C. Aquino, 84
Beloved son, husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and great-uncle


Samuel C. Aquino, 84, of Cedar Grove, N.J., passed away on October 30, 2019. Services begin on Mon., Nov. 4, 2019 at 10 a.m. at Shook’s Cedar Grove Funeral Home, 486 Pompton Ave., Cedar Grove. Funeral Mass at 11 a.m. at St. Catherine of Siena Church, Cedar Grove, with entombment at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, East Hanover, N.J. Visitation will be on Sun., Nov. 3 from 4-8 p.m. at the funeral home. Memories and condolences may be shared at shookscedargrove.com.

Born and raised in Newark, N.J., he was the only son of Dominic and Lucy Aquino. Sam married his high school sweetheart, Lorraine D’Ambrosio, in 1956 and moved to Bloomfield, N.J. where they raised their children. They later moved to Cedar Grove and resided there until 2010. He owned and operated a franchise at the 7-Up Bottling Co. of Essex until 1988. Sam then graduated from the Essex County Police Academy and began a second career as a Corrections Officer with the Essex County Jail prior to retiring. He enjoyed playing cards with his friends at “the club.” He will always be remembered for his sweet personality and for making those around him laugh. He had a generous heart and was always the first to help those in need.

Predeceased by his wife, Lorraine, and his parents, he is survived by his children, Dominic Aquino, and his wife, Anna, and LouAnn Kinsella; and grandchildren, Ashley Kinsella, Christopher and Deanna Aquino. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and friends.

“Say not in grief ‘he is no more’ but in thankfulness that he was.” - Hebrew Proverb

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Compassus Hospice Care, 45 Eisenhower Dr., Ste. 240, Paramus, N.J. 07652.
