Gerald A. Quagliaroli, 80, beloved husband of Sandy (Sheridan) Quagliaroli, passed away on Sunday, Nov. 14, 2021, at St. Francis Hospital with his family by his side.

He was born on Feb. 5, 1941, at 30 Church St. in Windsor Locks to Frank and Frances (Garini) Quagliaroli. Known to his friends as Jerry, he retired from the Air National Guard after 37 years of service. Additionally, his lifetime of dedicated work included multiple small business ventures, which he attended to throughout his life. Jerry was most at home in nature, cultivating his famous tomatoes for the family to enjoy throughout the year and foraging and drying mushrooms for the risottos and sauces that brought so much enjoyment to family meals. Meticulous in his habits, his routines were a constant – morning feedings of his pigeons, evening rounds to check in on business and dropping in on friends. These traditions brought peace to Jerry and joy to his friends and loved ones. He is remembered not only for his physical strength, as someone who's hands could fix anything but for his strength of character: gentle, wise and assured, whose reliability never wavered. Jerry was passionate about the Windsor Locks community where he spent his life. He was a faithful parishioner of Mary, Gate of Heaven Parish, St. Mary Church in Windsor Locks. He was most proud of his family.

He is survived by wife, Sandra; and his three children, James Quagliaroli of Windsor Locks, Beth Gill and her husband, Michael of Duxbury, Massachusetts, and Trina Quagliaroli and her husband, Michael Harris of New York City; his grandchildren, Michael and Olivia Gill, James and Lia Quagliaroli and Owen Harris; his nephew, Carl Quagliaroli; his niece, Hope Ray; and his sister-in-law, Faith Quagliaroli. He was predeceased by his brother Neil Quagliaroli in 2020.

Relatives and friends may join the family on Friday, Nov. 19, 2021, from 3 to 6 p.m., at Windsor Locks Funeral Home, 441 Spring St., Windsor Locks. (Facemasks are required.)

A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at Mary, Gate of Heaven Parish, St. Mary Church, Windsor Locks on Saturday, Nov. 20, 2021, at 10 a.m. (Please meet directly at church). Burial will follow at St. Mary's Cemetery, Windsor Locks.

I worked with Jerry for many years at the CTANG and will always remember his friendly personality and discussing numerous topics with him. May the Lord grant him eternal rest in the loving arms of his Savior, Jesus Christ. I also pray that the Lord will give his family the Peace and Comfort that transcends all understanding.

Dear Sandy With the passing of Neil, and now Jerry, a large portion of my childhood and young adult memories have come flooding back - Neil's boat on the lake, plowing snow, working on cars in Neil's garage and many more. Particularly after my father died, Neil and Jerry became a huge influence on my life and I am forever in debt to them both for their guidance and support during that time and many others. Pease accept my heartfelt and sincerest sympathy on his passing. The curtain has drawn on that wonderful generation and we are the poorer for it. Love and prayers to you and the family Jim Seaha
