Obituary

Obituary for Raymond L. Mastoloni Sr.

Raymond Louis (Ray) Mastoloni passed away peacefully at 89 years old in the comfort of his home on January 9th, 2020, embraced by family and surrounded with love. Deeply respected within his community and revered professionally, Ray was a generous man, a successful provider, and a compassionate husband, father, and grandfather.


Ray is survived by his adoring wife of 61 years, Carol Mastronardi, and their four loving children Raymond (Kirsten), Jeanne, Joseph (Laura), and Thomas (Patricia). Ray was also a devoted ‘Poppy’ to 12 grandchildren, Dana (Brett), Alyssa (Colin), Raymond (Meghan), Joseph, Charles, Victoria, Kyle, Alexandra, Elizabeth, Christopher, Daniel, and Benjamin.


Ray was born in Brooklyn, NY on January 18, 1930, to Adele Paolotti and Frank Mastoloni. He attended Brooklyn Preparatory High School where he played football and went on to St. Bonaventure University. While Ray was an avid proponent of higher education, he took a leave of absence to serve his country proudly in the Korean War from 1950-1952. Upon his return home, Ray completed his Bachelor of Arts in History in 1954 before going on to St. John’s Law School.


On June 28th, 1958 Ray married the love of his life, Carol, a strong and beautiful woman who swept him off his feet and held his unwavering adoration for over six decades. This union proved to be the foundation of his future success as a businessman and patriarch of a loving extended family.


Ray began his professional career while serving in Japan, fostering lifelong relationships, learning the language and laying the foundation of what would become a lucrative and thriving business. He was a partner at Frank Mastoloni and Sons for over fifty years, and alongside his brothers, catapulted the company to be one of the largest and respected purveyors of cultured pearls in the country. Ray was a leader in the industry and widely considered to be one of the few true experts on cultured pearls. He served as President of the Cultured Pearl Association of America for a number of terms and continued to share his passion for the business throughout his life. His professional legacy lives on through his son Raymond, and nephews Fran and Edward Mastoloni, all of who work at the company.


A resident of White Plains for 48 years, Ray was a role model in the community, looked up to by all as a beacon of strength, kindness, and courage. He was a member of Westchester Hills Golf Club and a Centurion member of the New York Athletic Club. Ray’s life was based on his family, his company and his friends. We will be thankful for years to come for all he has given us and we will miss him dearly.


Friends and relatives are invited to call at McMahon, Lyon & Harnett Funeral Home, 491 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains, NY on Sunday, January 12th from 3:00 pm-7:00 pm and attend the funeral at Our Lady of Sorrow Church, 920 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains, NY on Monday, January 13th at 11:00 am.
