Pat Santoro passed away at the wondrous age of 92 on February 7, 2023.

When I was 12 years old, you put me behind the wheel of your car and had me drive for the first time. You brought such joy to us when you let us buy the Chevy, dirt cheap (only after Aunt Virginia nagged you) We always referred to the car as Uncle Pat's Car. It gave us so much pleasure. And all those and so many family memories, you will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Gramps, When my life needed you the most you and grandma never let me down. Whether it was showing up to every single one of my ice skating competitions, picking me up from school, financially supporting me, taking care of all my cars, or just being an ear and some sort of stability in my life I never got to actually thank you enough. The past few years left some guilt on my heart because I wasn’t around enough. You’ve watched and was there throughout all my successes in life and always stood by my side throughout the good and the bad. You’ve came to every graduation, danced with me on my wedding day, and drove all the way to Jersey in your old age just to see my first home. These are most things my own father let me down on. But you never did. When my house burnt down you welcomed us in with open arms. I feel like the second pillar of stability in my life has fallen. I’m very thankful I got to take care of you and be there for you towards the end and never left your side when you needed me the most like you’ve never left mine when I needed a hand in my darkest of times. I’m happy you’re with grandma. Please continue to watch over me together because you two made one heck of a team when I needed you on earth. Now I know you’ll make an even better team for my future. I love you!
