Cosmo Albert Giancola
COSMO A. GIANCOLA West Richland Einans Funeral Home Cosmo A. Giancola passed away May 27, 2004, following a bout with Cancer.
He was born October 4, 1929 in New Castle, Pennsylvania.
After growing up in Ellwood City, PA with his parents, Clemente and Anna Giancola, he married his high-school sweetheart, proudly served in the US Marine Corps, began his family, and relocated to California.
His love of woodworking evolved into a family operated business which provided a livelihood not only for his family but for many others as well. He received great joy in providing many young men with the knowledge and skill to become a craftsman.
Cosmo's enthusiastic spirit continued in every aspect of his life. He excelled at all he attempted. He enjoyed working in his shop and was a ''Hole-In-One'' golfer.
As a resident of Washington for approximately 8 years, he continued to assist many with their woodworking and building projects through Lowes Home Improvement Center.
Many thanks go out to the people at Lowes for their continued support.
He was a member of Christ the King Parish in Richland, WA.
His family and friends will miss him greatly.
