Eugene V.  Sdao
Eugene V. "Gene" Sdao of Niagara Falls, NY, passed away under the care of Niagara Hospice at Mount St. Mary's Hospital in Lewiston, NY, at the wonderful age of 90. Born in Niagara Falls, NY, he was the son of the late Frederick and Catherine (Runco) Sdao.
Gene grew up in Plumville, PA and graduated from Plumville High School. He served in the United States Army and was honorably discharged in 1951. He graduated from Niagara County Community College with a degree in business administration. On August 2, 1962, he married Angela J. (Schiavone) Sdao.
Gene was employed as a master carpenter and tile installer for Carpenter's Local #280 in Lockport, NY, where he served as recording secretary. He also worked for the Civil Defense in Niagara Falls, NY. In addition, Gene was a longtime member of the Cristoforo Colombo Society, where he received the Distinguished Service Award in 2015. He was a member of the Society's Lottery Committee and took pride in selling the most lottery tickets out of the membership group. He enjoyed going to DiCamillo's and Marketside Restaurant for his daily coffee. Most of all, Gene loved everyone and will be remembered for his willingness to do anything for anyone.
In addition to his beloved wife of 57 years, Eugene is survived by his devoted daughter and the apple of his eye, Carla C. Sdao, as well as several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins, as well as many wonderful friends. In addition, he was the brother-in-law of Maria (late Anthony) Puglisi, Joseph (Karen) Schiavone and the late Joanne Schiavone. He was predeceased by his brothers and sisters, Sam (late Ida) Alongi, Annie Torquato, Frances (late Benny) Baldacchino, Josephine (late John) D'Anna, William (Ida Sdao), (Lil) Sdao, Jenny (late Angelo) DeFazio and James (Betty) Sdao.
Gene's family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful doctors, nurses and staff of the 5th Floor of Mount St. Mary's Hospital and to Niagara Hospice for the excellent care that Gene received.

We were just made aware of Gene’s passing and could not believe the news. He seemed he would live forever and keep making friends laugh. He will be greatly missed by all.
