Jim Gaglione
(Jimmy Gags)

Gaglione, James C.
The Buffalo News - August 23, 2020
Of Tonawanda, entered into rest on August 21, 2020. Beloved husband of the late Margaret (nee Pieri) Gaglione; devoted father of Jim Gaglione and Jeanne Brochowicz; dear brother of Jane (Samuel) Reitano.

Jim was a graduate of Buffalo Public School Nineteen in 1949 and of Lafayette High School in 1953, where he was a member of Tau Zeta Tau Fraternity
and lovingly known as 'Jimmy Gags'.

After graduating, he served in the U. S. Marine Corps.  On discharge, he began a thirty year career with the U. S. Postal Service, while also working as a stage hand, roustabout and stage manager for numerous live concerts and stage productions at Buffalo and Western New York venues including Shea's Buffalo, Memorial Auditorium and Rich Stadium.  Always a comic, he and his late wife Margie brought laughter to his friends at many gatherings throughout the years, and he was an 'elder brother' to younger TZT Alumni.   Private Service. Arrangements by Lombardo Funeral Home.
