A product of the Great Depression, he always had a strong work ethic and knew the value of a dollar. He was his father’s right-hand man, working in their Italian grocery store attached to their home. He was drafted into the US Army, proudly serving our country. Upon his honorable discharge, he returned home and later met Nancy Savino, and the rest was history. After a whirlwind romance, they married and settled in Bellmore, NY where they raised their family. Gary was a loving Dad and instilled so many important values in his sons. Love, faith, hard work and loyalty to friends and family, to name a few. And some may say as important, a fierce love for the NY Yankees. He shared his enthusiasm for sports with his family, loved to play tennis and golf, and was the biggest fan of his children and grandchildren. Gary was a social butterfly. He had a way and a kindness about him that drew people in. His million-dollar smile will forever be engraved in our hearts and minds. And although we are saddened by his passing, we take comfort in knowing he is at peace and watching over his family with love and pride. He leaves joyful memories to his wife Nancy of 54 years; his sons Peter and Martin; his daughters-in-law Christina and Tracey; his adored grandchildren Christopher, Kathryn, Andrew and Alexandra; and many dear relatives and friends. His siblings Peter, James and Camille passed previously.
