Steve Saulo, 96, Thompson, PA, passed away Tuesday, September 5, 2006 at the Skilled Nursing Facility of Barnes-Kasson Hospital in Susquehanna, PA after a brief illness.
He was born the son of the late George and Sally (Juric) Saulo.
He was predeceased by his wife, Helen; two brothers and sister-in-law, Michael and Kay Saulo, Peter Saulo.
Steve is survived by one daughter and son-in-law, Sally and Harry Slocum; one son and daughter-in-law, Stephen and Jeanette Saulo; several grandchildren, Linda and Joe D’Agostino and their children, Emily and Scott Hatt; Julie Hutteman and friend Brian; Dana D’Agostino; Debra and Rob Cole and their children, Jessica and Jason Swick and Jason Cole; Pamela and bob Shinksy and their children, Robert and Effie Shinsky and Tanya Shinsky; Stephen and Cheryl Slocum and their daughters, Elizabeth and Melissa; a great-grandchild, Madison Swick; brother-in-law and wife, Bill and Anna Kosciow; several nieces and nephews.
In the 1940’s, Steve worked at the U.S. Navy Shipyard in Kearney, NJ. He moved to Pennsylvania and became a farmer. After farming, he was an iron worker in Binghamton and surrounding communities, working on many buildings at the Binghamton University campus, several schools and businesses, and many bridges in the area. His last place of employment was doing ornamental iron work for McGregor Steel in Scranton, PA. An avid fisherman, clever in all forms of construction, he loved bowling, rooting for the Yankees or Giants football team, never missed a chance to take a trip somewhere, was always ready with a quick wit and a funny joke. He could make the best leg of lamb, hot buffalo wings and succulent apple pie.
Steve was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He will always be remembered for taking care of his wife at home during her extended illness and prior to her death. That is not to say he did not enjoy being at a sporting event, cheering on his grandchildren in their sports activities or help you when you needed it. The highlight of his winters were trips to Florida, spending time with his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren, who always pampered him. He was strong in his faith and was active and involved in his church when his health allowed it. His strong faith carried him through the ups and downs of life, and you would always see him reading his bible. A prime example of strength and determination, he lived life to its fullest. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
Funeral arrangements are private. Interment will be in St. John’s Cemetery in Forest City, PA.
Those who wish may make memorial contributions in his memory to St. Peter and Paul Russian Orthodox Church, c/o Vladimir Demianovich, RR 1, Forest City, PA 18421.
