Gerald (Jerry) A. J. Warnero, 57, died on Sunday at Regional Hospital of Scranton.
Born June 30, 1956, in Scranton, he was the son of the late Gaetano "Tono" G. Warnero and Jean M. (Fiume) Warnero, Dunmore, who lovingly cared for him throughout his courageous battle with cancer. Jerry was a 1974 graduate of Mid Valley High School. He held an associate degree from Penn State University
in electrical engineering technology and biomedical equipment technology from Johnson School of Technology. Throughout his career, Jerry was a dedicated worker in electronics, telecommunication and technology fields. His most recent employment was at Regional Hospital of Scranton.
Jerry had a heart of gold and, once a friend, you were a friend for life. He dedicated his life to his children, whom he loved more than anything else. He was a devoted father, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend who will be dearly missed by all.
He died peacefully with his family by his side.
A special thank you is extended to the employees of Regional Hospital of Scranton for the care, love and support they provided throughout the final days of his life.
In addition to his mother, Jerry is also survived by a daughter, Olivia Warnero; two sons, Julius and Ulysses Warnero, all of Scranton; a sister, Janet M. (Warnero) May; three nephews, Jared, Jacob and Joshua May, all of York; an uncle, Alfred Fiume, Olyphant; and a group of supportive cousins and friends who will always be remembered for their unconditional love and support, especially throughout his illness.
