SALVATORE GIOVANNI ZUCARO, age 53, beloved husband of Lisa Schiavo Zucaro, took his last breath on earth and his first in Heaven on Monday, August 28, 2017. He lived in Monroe, CT for the past 26 years and was born in Paternopoli, Italy on September 10, 1963. He is the son of Antonio Zucaro (predeceased) and Assunta Zarrella Zucaro of Stamford. Sal grew up in Stamford and attended Sacred Heart Elementary School and J. M. Wright Tech High School. He later attended University of Connecticut earning a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and an MBA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Sal spent over 30 years in the field of engineering working for Sikorsky Aircraft, Tellabs, and DRS Technologies and held varied positions, his latest being Vice President of Engineering.

Sal was a family man and a father first and foremost. He was a proud supporter of his son Anthony's football accomplishments at Masuk High School and Trinity College. He also thoroughly enjoyed his daughter Christina's many choir, dance, and theater performances. He was very proud of his children's successes, as his daughter is a school teacher and his son is presently attending law school. He loved vacationing in Vermont, Myrtle Beach and Florida, but none more than his beloved birthplace, Italy. He loved relaxing at the Zucaro homestead and simply speaking his native Italian language to neighbors, friends and family.

He looked forward to football season as he was a lifelong Dallas Cowboy fan. He always rooted for his alma mater Uconn Husky Men's Basketball team, and his beloved Azzuri Italian International team during the World Cup. His most treasured moments were all the weekends he spent racing down the ski slopes at Okemo with his children.

He is deeply missed by family and friends. He is survived by his wife Lisa Zucaro and his two children Christina Zucaro and Anthony Zucaro. Mother Assunta Zucaro of Stamford, his sisters Maria Palladino and Connie Piotroski of New Canaan; his brothers-in-law Dario Palladino, Greg Schiavo, and Edmund Piotroski, sisters-in-law Teri Schiavo and Maria Schiavo, and mother-in-law Sarah Schiavo. He is also survived by 8 nieces and nephews: Rosina Castiglione, Dario Palladino, Susan Stryjewski, Ryan Schiavo, Sarah Stelmaszyk, Nicole Schiavo, Eddie Piotroski, and Kaitlyn Piotroski. In addition, he is survived by 6 great nieces and nephews: Serena and Alessandro Castiglione; Lillian, Michael and Sabrina Palladino; Brihanna Stryjewski.

A Christian mass will be held on Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 10:00 AM at Saint Jude Parish, 707 Monroe Turnpike, Monroe. Friends and family please meet directly at church followed by a Christian burial at St John's Cemetery. Wake and services for family and friends will be held at the Spadaccino and Leo P.
