Leonard Joseph Gisondo, of Ozone Park, passed away peacefully on April 3, 2023 at the age of 91. He was a man of many talents. He was a carpenter, a mechanic, a great cook, a baker, a musician and was blessed to live a long life and spend time with the family he loved. He was a proud Marine, who loved his country, “Semper Fi Forever” was one of his favorite sayings! He always enjoyed a good “problem”, how to fix anything, with duct tape, a rubber band or a toothpick, anything was possible. He loved his family. His greatest joy was sharing time with family and friends on his boat, and feeding them. It wasn’t a day, unless there was food. He loved to make pizza dough with all his great grandchildren, and cherished the times they were around him. He loved their jokes and always enjoyed trying to figure out their riddles. One of his favorite days was the Family Picnic. It was a day of Feast and Family! He is the beloved father of Paula Frischberg (Michael), Rosalind Matthews (Victor) and Francine Deacutis (Joseph). Cherished grandfather of Sarah, Eric, Victor, Jereme Joseph, Sean, Linda, Lisa and Jason. He is the proud great grandfather of Jacob, Andrew Leonard, Simon, Emma, Natalie, Zoey, Morgan, Lucas, Dylan, Audrey, Carter, Maxen, Mason Joseph, Milania, Shane, Sienna, Luke, Hannah, Harrison and Hayes. He is the beloved brother of Pasquale Gisondo (Brother Dominic) and Mary Cama.
