Peter L. Sgorrano Jr., 79, passed away on Friday, December 27, 2019 at Glens Falls Hospital after a short illness.

Born June 25, 1940 in Glens Falls, NY, he was the son of the late Peter L. and Amelia Theresa (D’Angelico) Sgorrano Sr.

Peter graduated from Fort Edward High School where he played football during his time there. He then proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corps.

Upon his return from the service, Peter was employed by General Electric where he worked for over 35 years until his retirement. He then worked for AIM Services.

Peter was an avid sports fan and could often be found cheering for the NY Giants and the NY Yankees. He also loved spending time at the Saratoga Race Course with Kathy.

In addition to his parents, Peter was predeceased by many aunts and uncles.

Left to cherish his memory are his longtime companion of 27 years, Kathleen Winslow, his children; Christine Sgorrano, John Sgorrano (Mary), and Peter Sgorrano III (Tracey Bartos), his grandchildren; Vanessa VanGuilder, Anthony Sgorrano, John Sgorrano, and Nicholas Sgorrano, his brother Guy Sgorrano (Joanne), his nephew Todd Sgorrano along with his wife and children, Jo Ann Manning (Mark), Dawn Holmes (Matt) along with several other of Kathleen’s children and grandchildren, as well as his former wife Caroline Sgorrano.

At Peter’s request there will be no calling hours. Arrangements are in the care of the M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 82 Broadway, Fort Edward, NY 12828.

A graveside service will be conducted at 11am on Thursday, January 2, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Cemetery in Fort Edward.

Dear Christine, John & PL - please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. I'm also very sorry that I was unable to stop at the Legion or reach out to you sooner. Don't know if you all know this or not, but your Dad was my Godfather....we didn't always get along, but I think we had a mutual respect for each other and he never stopped trying to find out if I was "behaving myself".....he was a good guy, and I'm sorry he's gone too soon. Much love, wishing you all peace & comfort.

Pete, we experienced it all at GE: the good times, the not-so-good times, really hard times, but through it all we did manage
to laugh...a lot. You fought a good fight, now rest . Bill & Jeanne Charpentier
