George V. Stagno

Family & friends are invited to visit with the family on Thursday, November 7th, 2013 in the Vertuccio & Smith Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Route 107), Revere, beginning at 9 a.m. for George V. Stagno, who died on Monday, November 4th, following a long & courageous battle with Alzheimer’s Disease at the Annemark Nursing & Rehabilitation Center of Revere, at 74 years.  His funeral will follow the visitation, followed by a funeral mass in St. Anthony of Padua Church, Revere, at 11 a.m.  Born & raised in Boston’s North End, he attended Boston schools & was a 1957 alumnus of Charlestown High School.  His beloved late parents, Vincent “Jimmy” Stagno & Josephine (Bruno) Stagno, owned & operated “Jay’s Luncheonette” of Boston at two locations, on Cambridge St. across from Massachusetts General Hospital & the other nearer to “Scollay Square.”  As a young man, he worked with his parents as a cook, maintenance worker, manager, etc.  He left the family nest & together with his younger brother, Vincent F. “Jimmy” Stagno, ventured out to Colorado.  There they began their own business, a fast food stop, which exploded into a caravan of over 20 locations, known as “All Variety Sub-Marine Sandwiches.”  He & his brother owned & operated the entire empire until the early 1990’s when they returned to Boston to be closer to family.  Unfortunately, a childhood accident brought about early onset Alzheimer’s Disease for the past 13 years.  Although the disease became more aggressive, the determination of his sister, brother, nephews & nieces enabled him to remain at home until most recently.  He is the cherished brother of Nora Salamone & her late husband Salvatore M., Sr., & Vincent F. “Jimmy” Stagno, all of Revere.  He is also lovingly survived by many nephews, nieces, grand-nieces & grand-nephews.  Interment will be in the family lot at Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett.  Georgie was a long-time member of Boston’s West End Club.  In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to: Alzheimer’s Association, 480 Pleasant St., Watertown, MA 02472.

    Jimmy, Nora and family

    I just learned of George’s passing and am so sorry. Georgie was a fun guy when we were all much younger. It’s such a shame that his illness was so debilitating. I will remember him with that wonderful smile on his face.

    I am so sorry to hear about George. I have very fond memories from West End and Colorado. I had full intentions to go the the ceremony but ended up in the hospital on Thursday with a kidney problem

    Jimmy, Nora, and Family,
    I was sad to hear of the passing of George. He was a very nice man. I would see him walking home from Johnnies Foodmaster, and I always made it a point to drive him home when visiting my mom. God bless all of you at this time.
