Obituary of Roger Del Giorno
It is with great sadness that we announce Roger Del Giorno, age 86, entered in eternal rest in the early morning hours of December 1, 2023 at Lifepath Hospice in Sun City Center, Florida.
Mr. Del Giorno was born on April 12, 1937 to John and Louise Del Giorno in New York, New York. He served in the United States Air Force from 1955 to 1963 at Lowry AFB in Colorado and at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Japan. After retiring from the United States Air Force, he worked at the Long Island Railroad for 35 years where his skills as a train mechanic were unmatched. He moved to Florida in 2001 where he continued to live until his passing.
He is now reunited with his parents, John and Louise Del Giorno, and his son, Roger Anthony Del Giorno. He will be deeply missed by his wonderful wife, Carol Del Giorno, his brother, Gerald (Barbara) Del Giorno, his children, grandchildren, and many great grandchildren.
Mr. Del Giorno’s legacy of hard work, dedication and love will forever be cherished. The scripture that inspired him daily was “I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me.” John 14:6
