Gary P. Costanzo
June 17, 1953- August 18, 2020
It is with great sadness that the family of Gary P. Costanzo announces his passing on August 18, 2020. Gary was born on June 17, 1953 in Hoboken, NJ, where he was raised until his move to Maryland. He attended Mount Saint Mary’s College. Gary was an employee of the Navy Department with the Department of Defense. Gary played for three Rugby teams, The PAX River Lions where he was a past President and Vice President, the Washington Poltroons (an old boys historic Rugby club known as “The Troons”) and The Calvert Rugby Club. Those who knew him knew his never ending passion for rugby, his amazing sense of humor and the big heart he had for those he loved. Gary will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his children, Amber L. Costanzo-Tucker (son in law, Shawn Tucker) and Ryan A. Costanzo. Gary will also be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Connor, Fiona, Ava, Enzo and great grandchild, Leo, cousin, but more like a sister, Terry Dearden (husband, Ed Dearden), including all of his cousins, nieces, other family and countless friends. Gary was predeceased by his mother Elise F. Costanzo, his father Peter S. Costanzo and his brother Ronald T. Costanzo.
The memorial will be held privately by immediate family, due to unfortunate Covid guidelines.
