Richard A. Cuonzo
Richard Anton Cuonzo, M.D., 87, a former resident of Parsons, and more recently a resident of Hoopeston, Ill., departed this life Saturday, Sept. 23, 2006, in Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, just one hour prior to his 88th birthday, after being admitted with an unexpected illness.
He was born Tuesday, Sept. 24, 1918, at Long Island, N.Y., a son of the late Peter Cuonzo and Jennie Trapani Cuonzo. Surviving are his beloved wife, the former Dorothy Leona Yaus; three daughters, Valerie Cuonzo of Lakewood, Calif., Marilynn Cuonzo of Elkins and Michelle Seaman of Chesterland, Ohio; five grandchildren, Angela Cosner, Joelle Simmons and Zachary Cuonzo, all of Lakewood, Calif., Marielle Gallagher of Elkins and Stephanie Seaman of Chesterfield, Ohio; and a 1-week-old great-grandson, Owen Carter Cosner of Morgantown.
Dr. Cuonzo was a graduate of the University of Tennessee Medical School with the class of 1946 and completed his medical residency at Charleston, where he met his future wife, Dorothy. He continued his education and research by completing two more residencies in cancer and surgery before joining his father’s practice in West Memphis, Ark. He worked there until 1960 when he moved to Parsons and started his own surgical practice in conjunction with the Tucker County Hospital at Parsons where he resided until 1971. At that time he moved to Hoopeston, Ill., where he practiced medicine until his retirement at the age of 80 in 1999.
A former member of the Hoopeston Rotary Club, Dr. Cuonzo led a full life with a zealous interest in everything he did, including his family, his medical profession and also as an avid equestrian.

An environmentally conscious person, he loved the outdoors and caring for his animal friends, especially his dog, Rusty.
In the last years of his life, he and Dorothy spent much of their time in Chesterland to be with family. His eloquent knowledge of history and language paired with his keen memory and great wit made him a fluent storyteller. He will be greatly missed.
