Robert Emanuel Berry Sr.
July 4, 1928 – July 23, 2018
Los Altos Hills

Born on the 4th of July in Atlantic City, N.J., Robert Emanuel Berry Sr. went peacefully to God on July 23, 2018 at the age of 90. 

He lived an adventuresome life full of wonder and curiosity for the world, and while known for his remarkable career, Bob always kept his faith and family as his compass.

Predeceased by his loving wife of 61 years, Dorothy, and his siblings; Marguerite Prost (Marcel), Charles (Martha), Joseph (Carol) and William Berry. 

Bob leaves behind his devoted son, Robert E. Berry Jr., his daughter-in-law, Sandra Pollano Berry, his four grandchildren; Renee (Matthew Boitano), Robert Leo (Megan), Andrea, Valentina, and his three great grandchildren; Jude and Reese Boitano, and Pippa Berry. 

He received his Bachelors of Science from Manhattan College and his Masters in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. 

Bob served as Lieutenant in the United States Navy before his work as a pioneer in the aerospace industry.

Laying the groundwork for today’s modern communications, Robert’s vision for the future of satellite systems resulted in the development of innovations that have helped people all over the world. 

He served on the Space Systems Technology Advisory Committee for NASA, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee and was appointed as the Deputy Director of Defense Research and Engineering under President Gerald Ford.

From 1977-1990, Bob was the general manager of Ford Aerospace’s Space Systems Division (SSD). In 1999 he was named president of Space Systems Loral (SSL), and later became chairman. He served as SVP of Loral Space & Communications until his retirement at the age of 80 in 2008.

He led SSL through meteorological satellite projects for defense, civil and commercial applications and played an important part in what is today’s commercial satellite industry.

A resident of Los Altos Hills since 1978, Bob and his wife Dorothy also lived in London, England, Margate, N.J., Media, PA, Atherton, Laguna Beach and La Jolla, CA.

Together, they enjoyed traveling and learning about cultures and traditions from people all over the world, but mostly appreciated being home while graciously and creatively entertaining family and friends.

Bob, or “Bibo” as he was affectionately known by family, was an extraordinary wise, earnest, amicable, compassionate gentleman. His loving humor, humility and patient presence will be greatly missed. 
In Lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made in his name to Immaculate Heart Monastery, 28210 Natoma Rd., Los Altos Hills, CA 94022

A Rosary will be held on the evening of Thursday, August 2nd at 7:00 P.M., and a Memorial Mass on the morning of August 3rd at 11:00 A.M., both at St. Nicholas Catholic Church (743 Lincoln Ave., Los Altos, Ca. 94022)

Lindy Remigino, Olympic Champion Runner, Is Dead at 87
July 12, 2018

*** begin quote ***

Lindy Remigino, who had never won a major championship and was not even the best sprinter on his Manhattan College track team, but who nonetheless won the 1952 Olympic gold medal in the 100-meter dash in a monumental upset and then won a second gold medal in a relay, died on Wednesday at his home in Newington, Conn. He was 87.

His son, Mike, said the cause was pancreatic cancer.

Lindy John Remigino
1931 – 2018 
Obituary 

Lindy John Remigino, 87, passed away at his Newington, Connecticut home on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 in the loving care of his family.

Born on June 3, 1931 in Corona, Queens, New York, Lindy moved to Hartford in 1937 with his parents Stefano and Rose (Strada) Remigino and brother Rudolph where he later attended Hartford Public High School. He used a full scholarship to Manhattan College to earn a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education.

In the iconic race of his life, Lindy upset the talented field to win the Olympic gold medal in the 100-meter Dash at the 1952 Olympic Games in Helsinki, Finland. He then won his second gold medal as part of the U.S.4x100m relay team.

Upon his return from Helsinki, Lindy married June Haverty in 1953. He then became a physical education teacher and track and field and cross-country coach at Hartford Public High School in Hartford, Connecticut. For a span of over 40 years, he coached teams to 31 state championships that included many athletes as individual state champions and All-Americans. In addition to coaching, Lindy served as Meet Director of numerous State Championship and invitational track and cross-country meets, and he founded and was the Meet Director of the prestigious Hartford Public High School Invitational for 40 years (a meet that was later renamed in his honor). He was also highly regarded as a track official at meets such as the U.S. Indoor Championships and the Millrose Games where he officiated for 20 years.

Lindy was inducted into the Halls of Fame of several organizations, including USA Track and Field, the New York Athletic Club, the New York Armory Track Center, Manhattan College, the National Federation of High Schools, the Connecticut High School Coaches Association and Hartford Public High School. His 1952 Olympic 100 meters triumph is included in Bud Greenspan’s book, “100 Greatest Moments in Olympic History,” as well as his video “The World’s Fastest Humans.”

He is survived by his beloved wife for 65 years June (Haverty) Remigino, his daughter Patricia Geer and son-in-law Richard Geer of Glastonbury, CT; his daughter Elizabeth Remigino-Knapp and son-in-law Ronald Knapp of West Hartford, CT; his daughter Linda Moulthrop and son-in-law Jon Moulthrop of Haymarket, VA; his daughter Kathleen Remigino and partner Gail Briere of Rotonda West, FL; and his son Michael Remigino and daughter-in-law Meredith Remigino of West Hartford, CT. He also leaves 10 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents Stefano and Rose (Strada) Remigino and brother Rudolph. Lindy’s family would like to extend their thanks and gratitude to Dr. Jonathan Sporn and Nella Zydanowicz of The St. Francis Cancer Center, his aides Winifred and Nicki of Masonicare and all the nurses of Masonicare’s Hospice and Palliative program for their compassionate care shown to Lindy and his family.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00am on Monday, July 16, St. Mark the Evangelist Church on 467 South Quaker Lane, West Hartford, CT. In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions to the following organizations: the Hartford High School Athletic Hall of Fame or the Smilow Cancer Center at St. Francis Hospital.
