Harvey Lorin Rosenstock 
Late on the afternoon of July 16th, the four-o'clock off-shore breezes rising, prompting sailors to raise jibs, mainsails, jennies, capture the brief magic of mid-summer while a westering sun shimmered stark waves of heat off parched land, off the parking lot of the Glengariff Nursing Facility in Glen Cove, New York - a once Gold Coast Estate on Long Island's north shore - Harvey Lorin Rosenstock lost his year-and-a-half battle with a malignant brain tumor that slowly, at first, then rapidly these last few weeks, erased the creative, inventive, whimsical happy mind of a man beloved by everyone that knew him.He was fifty-nine years old. In very late December, l997, Harvey awoke one morning with a terrible headache - and no memory of anything or anyone. He sat in the pilot house a work of art he had built around an ordinary cockpit - of our home, the sloop Haimish, head in hands, for twenty-four hours, before letting me take him to Glen Cove Hospital. Tests revealed nothing. He was sent home, and with steady prompting from me, over the next months, he began to recall some of his remarkable life: his travels worldwide as a supervising engineer, designing and building co-generation energy plants, his work with NATO, the three wives from whom he was widowed, the needs of his present wife who is deaf,his efforts to learn sign language and other ways of communicating with me, and in his ever-joyful way, illuminating the world of sound in descriptive ways for me. 
In June, l998, an MRI revealed a massive brain tumor. He was given months to live. Radiation followed surgery, and for awhile, we were granted an exquisite gift of time. Then one day last Feburary, suddenly, he could not talk, or write down the words in his mind. 
Medication improved his ability to speak temporarily - but eventually, as the weeks passed, he quickly lost the ability to read (he was a passionate reader), to write, to walk without falling, then to walk at all. His speech became slurred, nearly unintelligible, as he twirled his dashing mustache, mystified at the lack of transference of thought to spoken word. Excellent lipreader that I am, I could not comprehend this new non-language. His physical presence was there - but he had been taken from me already. He remembered only one American Sign Language sign - the crossing of the arms over the heart - I love you.  
His spirit was contagious. One friend, complaining of the rain, watched Harvey glance around Glen Cove Creek, noting the wildlife, heard him say, "It's a beautiful morning!" "In an instant," his friend wrote to me later, "he changed my viewpoint.It was a beautiful morning. He forever changed my thinking."  
Harvey Lorin Rosenstock was born in Monticello Hospital, living his early years in the nearby hamlet of Mountaindale. His birth brought the population at the time to 300. Later his family moved to New Hyde Park on Long Island.  
He is survived by his wife of 13 years, Hannah Merker; a son, Marc, of Huntington,NY; his mother, Eva Rosenstock of Worcester MA, a brother, Ron, of Holden MA; a brother, Steven, of Needham MA; three stepchildren: Dr Janice Goldberg-Menendez of Kew Gardens NY; Robert Kosloff of Concord CA; and Laura Kosloff of Portland OR; and two grandsons, Marshall and Marcus Kosloff, of Portland OR. And Anabel, Amos, Esther, Elijah and Sabrina, his beloved felines, and Smudge, his wife's hearing guide dog, so devoted to him. 
No funeral will be held. Sometime autumn, as the afternoon off-shore breezes rise and the sun sinks low in the shortening days, family and friends will toss his ashes on willful winds in a burial at sea. 

Rose Mastro Matteo 
Rose Mastro Matteo (nee Civarelli) of Sacremento, CA and formerly of Glen Cove. Beloved wife of the late Jerry. Devoted mother of Marie, Barbara Armstrong and Nicholas Mastro Matteo. Dear sister of Kay Grella (Phil), Jean Visslailli (Joe), Anthony, Louis (Peggy) and Michael P. Civarelli, the late Edith Colosanti, Matthew and Philip Civarelli. Loving grandmother of Chad, Todd, and Dean. Funeral services and Interment were conducted in Sacremento, CA.  

Dominick Genova, A Man for Everyone 
On August 6th, the day Dominick Genova died, a neighbor stopped by his home on Elm Avenue in Glen Cove, and asked a passerby how Dom was feeling, having known that he was in the hospital. When told that he had passed away just hours before, her immediate reaction was: "What a shame, he always did so many things for so many people." This is a fitting tribute for Dom, one that he would have modestly accepted. 
In his 89 years of life, one would never be able to find a person or cause that didn't receive his help, when it was needed. Dominick Genova was a true gentleman, a truly understanding person of the needs of his community, his beloved Boy Scouts, his church, and his chosen political arena. A lifelong resident of Glen Cove, Dom was a trustee of the Church of St. Rocco for over thirty years, a past president of the Holy Name Society, Chairman of the Bishop's Appeal Committee for over 18 years, President of St. Rocco's Vincent DePaul Society, a member of the Society's National Committee, and was a Fourth Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. At the parade ending the annual St. Rocco's Feast Dom was always at the side of the pastor, handing him medals of St. Rocco for distribution to the faithful.When His Holiness, Pope John Paul II celebrated Mass on Long Island, Dom was invited to be seated in the honored guest portion of the stage. For many years, Dom served as a well respected and effective District Committeeman for the Republican Party and his late wife Nell graciously served delicious homemade meals to selective candidates furing campaigns. He founded the American Citizenship Class, he served as a member of the American Committee on Italian Immigration, he was a Glen Cove Fire Commissioner for 35 years, a member of the Glen Cove Hall of Fame (and his name is inscribed on the newly established Hall of Fame monument at City Stadium), and was selected as the Man of the Year by the Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce in 1996. He organized and chaired golf tournaments, for the County and the City; was the golf pro for the Brookville Golf Club, and won the Metropolitan PGA. Retiring as an engineer for the Nassau County Department of Public Works, Dom had already formed the County Engineers' 25 year Service Club. After retirement, Dom and Nell travelled every year to conduct golf clinics for Native Americans in Arizona. As the founder of Boy Scout Troop 190, Dom served as its Scoutmaster for 17 years. He helped organize Troop 147, and was a Scoutmaster in Glen Cove for more than 30 years. A member of the Shelter Rock District Boy Scouts of America Committee, he was the chairman of the Scoutmaster Round Table Committee, and received the B.S.A. Community Service Award. And, Dom was awarded the Silver Beaver Award in Boy Scouting, the highest Scouting award for adults. 
Dom and Nell raised three daughters and one son: Marguerite Genova, Kathleen McGunnigle, Geraldine Rounds, and Dominick Genova. He is also survived by five grandchildren, and his sisters and brothers:Adele Sarro, Ann Barbieri, Mafalda Volina, Eugene and O. Frank Genova. 
Visitation was at the Marcus L. Bianconi Funeral Home on Sunday and Monday, from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m, with a Mass of Christian Burial at the Church of St. Rocco. on Tuesday, August 10 at 9:30 am.
