Obituary for Saverio Strati, Sr.

Please keep the family and friends of Saverio (Sam) Strati, Sr., age 87, in your hearts and prayers. Saverio passed on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 peacefully at home while surrounded by his loved ones.

Saverio was a devoted husband to his wife, Rosina Staltari. At age 17 Saverio left his homeland of Calabria, Italy and arrived in Canada where he married Rosina and they immigrated to America establishing permanent roots in Pittsburgh, where he earned his living in the steel industry. Having been trained as a youth in Italy, he was also able to practice his stone masonry skills throughout his lifetime. His passions were his family, his garden of 60 years, and his dedicated community activism for the good of the people of Hazelwood.

Saverio was extremely loving and proud of his children: Joseph; Maria (Kestutis); Saverio Jr. (June); and Rosanne (Robert). Saverio Sr. is the son of the late Giuseppe and Maria Francesca (Strano), and brother of Antonia (Giuseppe) and the late Giuseppina (David). Saverio was Papa to loving grandchildren, including Michael, Mykolas, Aleksander, Angelica, Francesca, Julianna, and Christina; he often served as their mentor and advisor.
