Tuesday, December 4, 2018My heart aches with the passing of my uncle Strat. He, and my aunt Cookie were such an important part of my life growing up. I cannot list all of the fun trips and events we attended together and as a family. I would never pass up an opportunity to spend time with him at the ballfields. I spent time with him for many years as a young boy being the bat boy for many of his legendary softball teams and players. The memories of the trips we took with our families to places like Lake George, Roseland, Ranch, Sea World, and the fun parties and holidays together growing up have been such wonderful everlasting memories. These in addition to him taking me to his job sites, hunting for deer,and going horse back riding. He lived his life to the fullest and always went with the flow. In my older years I would make arrangements to meet him at the Diplomat in Miami when he was there or at the Rio in Las Vegas if I could which were always wonderful. I am so glad I had a chance to speak to you before you left us. I love you my uncle and now you are at peace with the love of your life, my aunt Cookie. My love and deepest sympathies go to Simone, JR, and the rest of family. You will be missed. Love, Your nephew John

Monday, December 3, 2018Strat was a legendary figure to those of us who grew up in Astoria. He was truly a Damon Runyan character, tough as nails but with a heart of gold. He and his brothers & Tony J. feared no one; but there wasn’t anything that he wouldn’t do for his friends. His lifelong love of softball kept legions of us playing to this day....and no one could recruit talent like he could. He’s undoubtedly up there already casing out the best players, with the ever present twinkle in his eye and the cigar in his mouth. Rest In Peace my friend....& thanks for the memories.

Sunday, December 2, 2018It was sad today hearing about the passing of Stratis. I'm a childhood friend of Strat's brother in law Tony Longobardi & first met Strat & future wife "Cookie" on 33rd Street in Astoria in the early 60's when we "kids" playing football on the street. I always remember Stratis as one of the older guys who every one respected. He & Cookie made a great couple. He always had a friendly greeting & even after not seeing you for a long time, he'd remember your name the next time you met him & be sincerely interested in how you were doing and always had a positive word for you. My sincere condolences & prayers go out to all of his family members. My sadness today at Strat's passing was also accompanied by a smile at the good memories of him. Stratis was a hell of a good guy! GOD Bless him.
