Gerald Rivello Obituary

Struthers - Gerald William “Jerry” “Re” Rivello, 83, of Struthers, entered into eternal rest surrounded by his loving family early Thursday morning, August 3rd, 2023.

Jerry was born May 20th, 1940 in Youngstown, OH, the son of Jerry and Ann (Balint) Rivello. He was a lifelong area resident, graduating from East High School in 1958, and settling in Struthers a few years later.

He was employed at Wonder Bread for over 15 years and Schwebel’s Baking Company for over 27 years. He worked in the Shipping and Receiving department where his coworkers often referred to him as “Iron Man.”

Jerry was devoted to his Catholic faith and was a long-time parishioner at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Basilica, and was also a member of the Cleveland Bakers and Teamsters Union Local 19.

Family was everything to Jerry. He held dear his time spent with Dave and Carolyn, Dawn and Tony, and his granddaughters, Kara and Kristen. Jerry enjoyed his daily talks and days with his brother, Bob, at their cottage on Lake Milton. He cherished attending the Rochester International Jazz festival each year with his son, Dave, in Rochester, New York. Trips to Las Vegas with his brother, Lou and nephew Randy, were always something he looked forward to. Jerry was an avid gardener for most of his life, always generously sharing the fruits of his labor with his family and friends. He was also a sports fan, cheering on his favorite teams, the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians.

Jerry leaves behind him to treasure his memory two children, Dave (Carolyn) Rivello of Rochester, New York and Dawn (Tony) DiNofrio of Bedford, Texas, his most beloved granddaughters, Kara (Ilya) of Chicago, Illinois and Kristen DiNofrio of Dallas, Texas, his best friend and brother, Bob Rivello of Cortland, Ohio, and his cat Sam whom he adored, along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Besides his parents, Jerry was preceded in death by his dear brother, Lou, and his two beloved cats, Koto and Sammy.
