Ferdinando "Fred" Sgroi, 84, of Tillson, New York, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 30, 2018. He was born on September 8, 1933 in Castiglione di Sicilia, Italy to the late Salvatore Sgroi and Rosaria (DiBella) Sgroi.

Fred was a certified graduate of "Scuola Per La Moda VALENTI" (Fashion Design School) in Milano, Italy and worked as a women's dress designer.

He emigrated from Milan, Italy, to Kingston, NY, in 1964. He soon began his career as a tailor at Rafalowsky's Men's Store and later brought his skills to Sears Roebuck & Co. where he worked for 25 years and retired. He then returned to Rafalowsky's as their Master Tailor leading the tailoring team, working until his final retirement in 1995. An accomplished woodworker, Fred also enjoyed fishing, playing chess, and mostly spending time with his granddaughters.

Fred is survived by his wife of 35 years, Lucy Sgroi; his daughter, Tania Costello and her husband Mike; his granddaughters, Jadyn, Shayla, and Ashly Costello; his sisters in Italy, Adele Sgroi, Amelia (Sgroi) Randazzo and her husband Vincenzo, Genoveffa (Sgroi) Liuzzo and her husband Antonino, and Elvira (Sgroi) Rinaudo and her husband Antonio; his sister-in-law Jacqueline Cachard of Hasselt, Belgium; as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins. In addition to his parents he is predeceased by his brother Antonino Sgroi and his sister Maria (Sgroi) Tropea and her husband Antonino Tropea.
