Amorosi, Gaetano - San Francisco  
Gaetano Amorosi September 1, 1946 - April 16, 2016 Gaetano died after spending months fighthing a failing heart which didn't work mechanically but was full of love for his husband and friends. He died peacefully with his husband by his side. Gaetano was extremely grateful to the nurses and doctors at CPMC who provided excellent care to him during his lengthy stay but he knew when it was time for his stay to end. Gaetano was born in Chicago and lived in Illinois until he completed college at Knox College. He lived for a time in New York City and in Florida before settling in San Francisco in 1983. Gaetano leaves behind his husband and soulmate, Ken Auletta, after 15 wonderful years of travel, adventure and fun. Gaetano loved deeply and was loved in return. He opened his heart to friends and was a very gracious man who could charm anyone. Gaetano was the social planner for the couple. When the two discussed perhaps taking a trip to Europe it would take only a few minutes before the hotel and flight reservations were made and confirmed. Gaetano did not waste any time getting things done! When Gaetano set his mind to something he did not rest until he got it done. Gaetano was sober for over 30 years and he helped many other people stay sober during that time as well. He gave freely of his time and energy to help people build a life from the ashes of their addiction and he believed that every minute was time well spent. Gaetano volunteered at the Shanti Project during the height of the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco and supported many local charities. He also supported his Alma Mater and always treasured his college years and remembered fondly his role in The Mikado during his drama major years. Gaetano created a network of friends and could make anyone feel comfortable in a few seconds because he was so interested in other people and loved being part of the world. He will be greatly missed.
