Obituary

Charles J. Rustici, 98, of Camp Hill, passed away Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at home.

Born on December 30, 1922 in Pawcatuck, CT, he was the son of Michangelo and Domenica (Sammataro) Rustici.

A WWII Army veteran, Charles served in the 45th Infantry Division, participated in three amphibious landings, and recorded 522 days of combat. He was among the troops that made the initial landing at the Anzio beachhead on January 22, 1944 and among the first troops to cross the Rhine River into Germany in March 1945. He earned a Bronze Star and a Silver Star, and his unit received the Presidential Citation and the French Croix de Guerre.

A graduate of Bryant University, he was Vice President for Finance of Harrisburg Hospital, past president of the Pennsylvania Healthcare Financial Management Association, and Director of the Holy Spirit Mental Health Center, where he helped establish the suicide prevention program Teenline.

Throughout his life, Charles and his wife Patricia gave of their time to friends and neighbors experiencing health problems. Consequently, they were seen in several doctors’ offices, hospitals, and nursing homes.

Charles is survived by his loving wife, Patricia (Clemons) Rustici; two sons, Marc Rustici [wife Lisa], and Craig Rustici [wife Jean Quinn]; and five grandchildren: Heather, Kevyn Liam, Luca, and Owen Rustici. He was predeceased by three sisters and four brothers.

A viewing will be held on Monday, March 1 6:00-7:00 pm with service to follow. Burial with military honors will be held at 10:30 am on March 2 in Rolling Green Cemetery, Camp Hill, PA. In lieu of flowers, please donate in Charles’s name to the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation or Doctors without Borders.
