Robert (Bob) Di Lorenzo, 93, passed away on Sunday August 26, 2018 in Mt. Vernon, NY.  He slipped away quietly into the hands of God’s eternal life. He was born on March 15, 1925 along with his twin sister Grace, with whom he shared a special bond in Mt. Vernon, NY.  He was the son of the late Antonino and Lucia (Chiappinelli) DiLorenzo.  He was preceded in death by his parents, 4 siblings and most recently his beloved nephew and godson Paul Tesoro. When his country called during WW II Bob answered the call as had his brothers, and he honorably served in the European theatre with the US Army. Following his return from WW II Bob was hired by the newly forming United Nations.  He was a member of the United Nations Society of Mohicans (one of the first 100 employees of the United Nations).  He retired in 1980 as the Deputy Chief of Stenographic Services.  Bob was a lifelong dedicated parishioner of St. Ursula’s Church, Mt.
