He worked in the food service industry where he met Ruth who later became his wife. They were happily married for over 43 years.

After retiring and moving to Gardnerville, Nevada in 1996, Cosmo was able to enjoy one of his favorite pastimes: skiing. He also took up Tae Kwon Do where he eventually earned his 4th Degree Black Belt. He taught at Northwest Martial Arts, where his young students loved him.

When the new senior center was built, Cosmo and Ruth went regularly for lunch and Bingo where they made many friends. Cosmo was a faithful member of Trinity Lutheran Church where he served many years as an Elder. His church family was very special to him.
