Carl L. Diliberto passed away peacefully on Wednesday July 6, 2022 at the Paramount at Somers Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. He was 81. Carl was born on April 8, 1941 in Queens, NY to Carmelo Diliberto & Grace Magno Diliberto.
Carl was a graduate of Marlboro High School and SUNY Paltz, where he graduated with a degree in teaching Mathematics. He briefly taught math in his home district before moving on to work for IBM in East Fishkill for twenty-six years. He then worked for Ulster County in various positions for twenty years.
He was an active member of the Marlboro-Milton Lions Club for many years. He served in every role except treasurer, some members have joked, including President, Director, 1st Vice President, and Club Secretary, the position he still held before falling ill. Carl was also a proud member of the Town of Marlborough Republican Committee, serving as Chairman for a period of time.
He is survived by his wife of forty-seven years Mary Osterhout Diliberto; six children; eight grandchildren; his brother Joseph and wife Carol; his sister Grace Ann and her husband Robert; and several nieces and nephews.
Carl was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He loved mowing the lawn all weekend every weekend, a good scotch, his collection of old newspapers, and was a fanatical follower of the Weather Channel. While he could be counted on to change a light bulb or install a dimmer switch or two, his handyman skills were quite limited. In fact, his favorite saying was "everything can be fixed with duct tape".
Funeral services took place on Monday July 11, 2022 and burial was at Cedar Hill Cemetery in Newburgh, NY. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to DiDonato Funeral Service, Inc. The family asks that in lieu of flowers to consider making a donation in his name to Burke Rehabilitation Hospital- the Stroke Program or the Marlboro-Milton Lions Club.
