Gary Caruso

Gary V. Caruso passed away at his home on May 21, 2015 after a courageous and lengthy battle with multiple sclerosis. Born on May 23, 1952 in Bradford, PA, Gary grew up in Niagara Falls, NY and graduated in his own time from Niagara University. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy and was a loyal and active member of the Brockport Lions Club and the MS support group.

Gary was a loving husband to Elizabeth "Libby" and devoted father to Matthew (Maureen) of Indianapolis and Ellen of Somerville, MA. He is also survived by his sister Beverly Caruso and loving nieces and nephews, family members and friends. He was pre-deceased by his parents Hilda and Joseph Caruso, mother-in-law Patricia Sacheli, and brother-in-law Steven Case. The family would like to acknowledge the support given to Gary by Kim, Chelsea, Lynne, Rachel, Kiescha, Laura, and the VA Home Based Primary Care. Throughout his extended illness, Gary's modest demeanor inspired many to participate in activities for and support the search for a cure of MS. We are all the better for having his courage and determination in our lives.
