Emilio Justo Gerardo Del Pozo y de la Osa, 68, of Astoria, NY, passed away on March 23rd, 2017.

A gathering will be held to celebrate his life on Sunday, April 23rd at 4pm at the Producers Club, 358 W. 44th St., New York, NY.

Emilio was born in Havana, Cuba on August 6th, 1948. He moved to the US when he was 7 years old and grew up in Mount Vernon, NY at the Wartburg Orphan Home. He served in the US Army during the Vietnam era and went on to study acting, graduating from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy.

He continued to have a successful career for several years in the New York performing arts industry, including a featured role in the Roundabout Theatre's production of 'Summer and Smoke,' and understudy to Al Pacino in the Broadway production of 'Salome.' He did several Off-Broadway and Regional shows, numerous commercials in both the English and Spanish speaking markets, had a supporting role on 'Mathnet,' a Children's Television Workshop production, several appearances on Soaps, and multiple featured roles on 'Law and Order.'

While establishing his acting career, he worked for many years in Security at the Doral Hotel in Manhattan.

Always holding an interest in the arts, Emilio ended up working for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, from where he retired.

He enjoyed art in all its forms: whether it was acting, drawing, writing, or music. Bob Dylan and The Beatles were his favorite musical artists, and he often quoted Dylan as Emilio was an avid admirer of his poetry.

Emilio was a thinker. Philosophy and science fiction were topics that kept him intellectually stimulated, always searching for the deeper meaning of why we are all here and where else we go.

Emilio is survived by his two children, Brandon Del Pozo of Bound Brook, NJ, and Leandra Del Pozo of Jersey City, NJ, his former wife and mother of his children, Zita Geoffroy-Heinz of Bridgewater, NJ, his step-father Jose Gonzalez of Manhattan, and many loving cousins, friends and neighbors.

Emilio is pre-deceased by his mother Luisa de la Osa Gonzales.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital , 220 E. 42nd. St. New York, NY 10017, https://www.stjude.org,
