Obituary

Gasper Joseph Mauro was born in Brooklyn, NY on April 17, 1917 to Frank and Frances Mauro, who had arrived from Sicily only a few years before. He served in the U.S. Army in World War II in the European theatre. While awaiting transport from Seattle to the Pacific in 1945 the war ended, and so he was sent east to New York rather than west to Japan. He settled back to civilian life becoming a butcher, and in 1950 married Mildred Realmuto, also of Brooklyn. They had two children together: me, Donald in 1950, and my sister Linda in 1964.

Gasper, who was called Gus by nearly everyone, was a dependable provider and loving father. He was always there for us, and made it obvious every day that he loved his little family very much. He also loved The Yankees, Rangers, Knicks, and most all sports. I can recall typical Sundays of going to mass, then driving to our favorite Italian bakery for two or three loaves of Sicilian bread. My mom would then make "sauce" and pasta while dad sat in front of our deluxe Admiral TV console watching a baseball game, or two.
We will all miss his love, wisdom, advice, gentle manner, and quiet dignity. And somehow the Yankees will have to find a way to win without his support.
