Leo E. Trovato, Sr.

Leo E. Trovato, Sr. age 97, a longtime resident of Stoneham, formerly of Everett, died Saturday, February 25 at the Winchester Hospital. 

Born in Boston on November 21, 1925 he was the son of the late Franceso and Teresa (Guarino) Trovato. 

Mr. Trovato was raised and educated in Roxbury. He proudly served his country as a member of the United States Army during World War II, spending two years driving a tank in Germany. Upon returning home he settled in Everett and started his family; soon thereafter moving to Stoneham where he had been a resident for 63 years. Leo was a parishioner of St. Patrick Church in Stoneham; he was also active at the Wakefield Bowladrome. Together with his wife, a travel agent, Leo was able to travel the world extensively. 

Leo was known for his infectious laugh and quick wit.  He made friends everywhere he went and brightened their day. Family was most important to Leo and Gloria, who always could serve a gourmet meal in minutes to any of their guests. Eating and drinking at the dining room table for 12 made Leo and Gloria happiest.

He was the beloved husband of Gloria G. (Cammarata) Trovato, with whom he shared 73 wonderful years of marriage. He was the loving father of Leo E. Trovato Jr. and his late wife Denise of North Carolina, Rose Manni and her husband Jeffrey of Burlington, and the late Stephen Trovato. He was the brother to the late Joe, Frank, Jenny, and Marion. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Jeffrey, Anthony, David, Teresa, Nicole, Tiffany and Ricque and many great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
