It is with great sadness that the family of Robert David Coscia, Sr., 77, of Ormond Beach, FL, announce his passing away, on August 4, 2021 in the comfort of his home, after succumbing to his battle with cancer.

Services will remain private within the family.

Robert ‘Bob’ was born on June 30, 1944 in Butler, Pennsylvania to Richard and Dortha Mae (Lawson) Coscia. He attended Peabody High School. Growing up, Bob worked in the family restaurant, Richardo’s. In 1965, Himself with his family in tow moved to Wilkes-Barre, PA where Bob enjoyed an esteemed 35-year career working all Support Services at First Hospital Wyoming Valley.  Bob continued building his successful career running dietary at the Meadows Nursing Home, and various others, in addition to running the dining and food service at the Westmoreland Club. Following in the footsteps of his father, Bob opened up his own family restaurant in 1980, Coscia’s, and continued making a name for himself with out-service catering. In 1986, he purchased The Highlands at Newberry Estate where exclusive and refined catered events helped make memories for over twenty-five years for all those who attended.   Bob then met his current wife, Julia Lombardo Coscia, in late 2003.

As his family fondly jokes, Bob was known as the ultimate self-starter, creating the ’25-hour workday’.  He brought joy to those around him whom were lucky enough to hear his made up silly songs.  Bob greatly loved cooking his father’s family recipes and passing them onto his children. He retired at the age of 71, when he and his wife moved to his beloved Florida waters and beach, where he spent his remaining years.

Robert ‘Bob’ is survived by his loving wife, Julia Lombardo Coscia, originally of Pittston, PA; his four children: Rob Coscia, Jr and his wife, Angi, of San Francisco, CA, Melanie Madeira and her husband, David, of Pensacola, FL, Christine Miller of Colorado Springs, CO and Brian Coscia and his wife, Nancy, of Newark, OH; ten grandchildren, Kim Coscia, Rob Coscia, III, Hannah McLaughlin , D.J. Madeira, Michaela Madeira, Anthony Madeira, Nicky Madeira, Lindsey Madeira, Aubrianna Miller, and Ethan Miller; his sisters Anita Jacobs of Spring, TX and Rosemary ‘Wissy’ Zourelias and her husband, Soc, of Apollo, PA, along with many nieces and nephews; he was preceded in death by his parents, Richard and Dortha Mae, his sister, Diane, and his brother, Richard, along with some precious pets, Timmy, Peanuts, Kirby and Beringer.

    I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Didn't know him and Julie very long but enjoyed every day of being a neighborl My sympathy is with Julie and his family. Especially appreciated his cooking and his wit and sharing his faith.

    I am deeply saddened by my Uncle Bob’s passing. I grew up living with him and have always felt him to be more of an older brother than an uncle. He was truly a very loving and caring man. I’ve always been very proud of his many accomplishments. I will miss him greatly.

    Uncle Bob was more like an older brother to me and my sister, Adriane. We lived under the same roof as sometimes extended families do. He would have the occasional duty of “baby sitting” us. It wasn’t his favorite thing, but he would often cook with us and pull some silly pranks. He was a good uncle and stepped up when needed during family illnesses. He will be missed by all of us.

    My heart is broken to be writing on this tribute wall because it means my dad has passed away. I don't want that fact to be true. He was a man with many sides to him, but above all he was a man who loved his family, loved Jesus and worked hard all of his days. I love my dad and I will greatly miss him! xoxo
