Gerald Sarno

January 1928 – June 2017

Gerald D. Sarno, who was born January 30, 1928 in Revere to Generoso and Antonietta Sarno, both natives of Italy, died recently.

Mr. Sarno graduated from Revere High School in 1946. At Revere High, he was a top student and athlete. He captained the 1945 football team and was a member of the varsity basketball and outdoor track teams. He was senior class president.

After high school, Mr. Sarno became the first member of his family to attend college when he matriculated at Dartmouth in the fall of 1946.   He was soon thereafter joined by his older brother Joseph, who had graduated from Revere High two years earlier but was serving in the military at the time.

Both Jerry, as he was known to all, and his brother Joe were football standouts at Dartmouth and members of Sigma Chi fraternity.   Jerry graduated from Dartmouth in 1950 and received his Master’s Degree in 1951 from Dartmouth’s Thayer School of Engineering where he later served as a member of its Board of Overseers.

Upon finishing his time at Dartmouth, he went to Newport for training and became an Ensign in the United States Navy.

While at Dartmouth, he met his lifelong companion, his wife Virginia (Ginny) Murphy, then a student at nearby Colby Junior College.  Jerry and Ginny were married in 1952 and had two children, Lisa and Tony, named after Jerry’s oldest sibling, Anthony, who had passed away while serving his country in World War II.

Jerry’s distinguished professional career included lengthy tenures at Perini Corporation and Bethlehem Steel. The Sarno family resided in various places over the years, including Greenwich, Connecticut, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and various other locations.

Jerry and Ginny’s home base during many of their fondest years was Sutton Place, on the East River in Manhattan, and Brier Neck, on the ocean in Gloucester, Massachusetts.  But to them, “home” was wherever they and their children and extended family, including Jerry’s youngest sibling, Doris, found themselves at any given time.

Jerry and Ginny celebrated 65 years together this past March, never leaving each other’s side throughout their entire adult lives.

For many year, Jerry was a member of the Algonquin Club of Boston, the Sky Club and the Columbus Citizens Foundation of New York City, the Elks, and he was a lifetime member of the Moles.  Jerry and Ginny were longtime daily communicants of Our Lady of Good Voyage Church in Gloucester.

An avid golfer, Jerry was a member of Bass Rocks Golf Club in Gloucester and Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York.

He is survived by his wife, Ginny, his daughter, Lisa of Boston, his son, Tony and his wife, Shannon of Nashville along with their son, Aeden, and his sister, Doris of Nahant.

His funeral mass will be celebrated in Our Lady of Good Voyage Church on Friday, June 23 at 9:30 a.m.  Extended family and friends are cordially invited to attend. Visiting hours will precede the mass on Friday from 7:30 to 9 a.m. in the Greely Funeral Home, 212 Washington Street, Gloucester.

The burial will be held in Calvary Cemetery.
