Gerold P. Burdo

April 20, 1950 - May 15, 2014

MORRISONVILLE — PLATTSBURGH - Gerald P. Burdo, 64, of Monty Street, Plattsburgh, N.Y., died on Thursday May 15, 2014, at CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh after his long battle with cancer.

He was born in Plattsburgh, on April 20, 1950, the son of Homer and Mildred (Lucia) Burdo. Gerald grew up in Plattsburgh and graduated from St. John's High School. He was a member of Our Lady of Victory Church and worked at CVPH Medical Center and facilities for 43 years.

Gerald was a baseball advocate, coaching for 29 years and working as the vice president of Plattsburgh Little League for 25 years as well as fundraising for the American Legion Baseball League. Gerald was always a role model to children over the years, but his greatest love was his role as "Papa", where he traveled to every sport he could for his grandchildren, never missing their baseball, tee ball, softball, soccer, volleyball or football games. His lap was never empty and his heart was always full. Gerald received the Volunteerism award from former Mayor Clyde Rabideau and the Liberty Bell award by the Clinton County Bar Association. He was an avid fan of the New York Mets, Miami Dolphins and NASCAR driver Jimmy Johnson.

Gerald was predeceased by his sister, Karen VanNortwick, and his brother-in-law, Richard Maisano, and best friends, Gary Baker, Gary "Goose" Gagnon, and Gordie Coryea.

He is survived by his parents; and his wife Karen; his sons and their wives, who he loved as daughters; Kyle Burdo and his wife Nikki of Plattsburgh, Craig Burdo and his wife Lori of Stillwater, N.Y., Christopher Burdo and his wife Heather of Troy, N.Y.; his six grandchildren, Sydney, Sophie, Halle, Brody, Kaden and Aubrey; his sister Cathy Maisano; his brothers, Gary Burdo and his wife Cindy, Jimmy Burdo and his wife Diane, Steve Burdo and his wife Marylou; his brothers-in-law, Phillip VanNortwick and his companion Beth, Tom Maisano and his sister-in-law Michele Maisano, and Sue Baker; and several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
