September 1, 1946 �" April 16, 2016

Gaetano was active in a number of organizations in San Francisco since he arrived here in 1983. He volunteered with the Shanti Project during the height of the AIDS epidemic and was proud of over 30 years of sobriety. Gaetano also helped many people rise above their addiction to once again join the world he so loved.

Gaetano died after a battle with heart failure that could not be won. His heart was failing mechanically but was filled with love for his husband, Ken Auletta, and his many friends. Gaetano put energy into his friends, his organizations, and his many travels with his husband.

Gaetano was born in Chicago and after receiving his drama degree from Knox College he went on to post graduate work at Northwestern. He worked in a number of positions with GE, Bank of America, and with Visa International. He was an artist and loved photography and spent hours on his website.

Gaetano had a big heart full of love and he will be missed.
