Varrato, George M.




George M. Varrato George M. Varrato, 64, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018. George was born May 5, 1953, to the late Ann and Domenick Varrato, of Leechburg. His late Aunt Theresa (Vince), of Leechburg was also of great importance to his upbringing. He was a graduate of Leechburg Area High School Class of 1971, a 1975 graduate of Gannon College, and held an MBA from Gannon University. Following college, he worked in sales for IBM and Bell Atlantic in Pittsburgh. In 1992, he purchased a business, his first of several successful forays into business ownership. From an early age, George exhibited a passion for all things mechanical, giving way to a lifelong love of motorsport. He enjoyed spending time with his children, talking with friends, smoking cigars, and cultivating an encyclopedic knowledge of all things film and music. George was a loyal friend to many, some known since childhood and others made while he coached his kids' soccer team for Twin Boros. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a laugh that will truly be missed. He is survived by the mother of his children, Patricia Martinetti; his three children, Ashley, Matthew, and Evan; four grandchildren; and his beloved cat, Stewie. Friends and family are invited to partake in a celebration of George's life from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 4, at Cornerstone Restaurant in Aspinwall (301 Freeport Road, Pittsburgh PA 15215).
