Obituary

Gerardo "Jerry" Natale of Norristown, passed away on Thursday June 17 at his home, surrounded by family. He was 86 years old. Born April 1, 1935 in Nusco, Italy. He was the son of the late Stefano and Raffaela (nee Cumuso) Natale and the beloved husband of Yolanda (nee Delligatti) Natale, with whom he shared 67 years of marriage.

Jerry was married in Italy and immigrated to America at the young age of 19. He worked tirelessly in the construction trades, building a foundation for his family. In 1969 Jerry completed the construction of his beautiful, family home and proudly moved in with his wife and two children. There, he
enjoyed many happy years of parties, summer barbeques, and holidays. In 1979, Jerry started his own business and was joined by his son, forming J. Natale & Son. He and his son worked together until Jerry's retirement in 1996. Now, Jerry's son and grandsons proudly continue his legacy. In later years, Jerry enjoyed traveling and cruising with his family and friends. He loved going to the shore, especially Atlantic City, where he had a second home. He was passionate about tending to his garden, fruit trees, and grape vines.

In addition to his wife Yolanda, Jerry is survived by his son; Steven Natale (Rosanna) and his daughter Raffelina Natale, five grandchildren: Steven Jr. (Amanda), Nicholas, Gerard, Sofia, and Gina, great granddaughter; Elliana, his siblings: Maria Contino, Carmine Natale, Michael Natale (Rosanne), Susan Ronan, and Joseph Natale (Sandy), and his sister-in-law Josephine Natale, as well as many nieces and nephews.
