Andrew J. Cresho

Date of Passing:

April 24, 2022

Andrew J. Cresho, 89, of Barrington, died peacefully on Sunday April 24, 2022 at Rhode Island Hospital, Providence. He was the beloved husband of Lucille (Miniscalchi) Cresho.

Born in Honesdale, PA, son of the late Andrew and Mary (Vitiello) Cresho, he lived in Barrington for 14 years, previously residing in Chatham, NJ where he was a communicant of the Corpus Christi Parish.

Andrew worked in the food industry for over fifty years including owning his own food brokerage in Bloomfield, NJ. He finished his career as a salesman for the Prestige Food Brokers, Paramus, NJ before retiring at age 75.

Andy was an outstanding three sport athlete at Jenkins Township High School in Pennsylvania, competing in football, basketball and baseball. His first love was baseball which he particularly excelled at as a player. His love of the game continued throughout his life as he enjoyed watching his grandchildren play from Maine to Rhode Island, rarely missing a dance recital, horse show, or sporting event, as well as following his beloved New York Mets and Boston Red Sox.

Pop-Pop, as he was lovingly called by his grandchildren, was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. Besides his wife of 58 years, he is survived by two daughters, Robin Anne Hunter and her husband Scott of Caribou, ME and Holly Cresho Gil MD and her husband Alfredo of Barrington and five grandchildren, Andre Gil, Elena Gil, Haley Hunter and her husband Ben Wyman, Michael Hunter and Hayden Hunter. He was the brother of the late Jean Drob, Josephine Gitch, Mary Anzalone, Joseph, Nick, Anthony, John and Paul Cresho.

Funeral Services are private.

  3. It is with a heavy heart and much sadness that I have to write a condolence to people I love. He has left us but the memories will linger on forever. I will miss him for he was a part of my life, the big brother I never had. He was there in my early years, in my teens and in my adult life. He was never Uncle Andy to me but ” Andy “. I will miss his routine phone calls that placed a smile on my face when I heard his voice to check on how we were doing. Jim was the Yankee fan and Andy the Mets: Jim was the Giant fan and Andy the Jets. I will miss you ” Andy “.

    Please accept my condolences on your loss. Pop pop sounds like he was an awesome dad and grandfather.
