Robert Cestone

Robert Cestone, age 51, passed away Monday, August 17th. He was born April 3rd 1969 in New Rochelle to Suzanne Whitney Cestone and the late Benjamin Cestone. He graduated Fordham University with a Masters of Social Work in 2003 and Columbia University School of social work 2007. He went on to help many people through the years and was most proud of his work running Camp Viva, a program which provided people affected by HIV with a fun summer retreat. He reached so many people in a deep and positive way.
Growing up on the Southside of New Rochelle, Robert made many lifelong friends. He loved and adored his nephews Ashton and Dylan and his niece Samantha. He absolutely lit up anytime he was around them. His love for his mom Suzanne, who he called his rock, was endless. He would join her every Sunday morning and read papers with her. He was most passionate about his life partner Lisa, whom he called Mi Amor.. she gave him the happiest years of his life.
Robert loved music, always supporting our local bands and going into the city to attend a number of venues and concerts. His favorite holiday was 4th of July. His love for fireworks and blowing up the neighborhood was legendary. He and his band of lifelong friends were still doing it to this day.
Robert is survived by his mother Suzanne Whitney Cestone, his life partner Lisa Ayala, his brother John (Christie) Cestone, his sister Debby (Anthony) Fragnito, his nephews Ashton and Dylan Cestone, his niece Samantha Cestone, his Uncle Bobby (Steve) and many cousins that will miss him dearly.
