Santos Pastoriza, 78 Combat Veteran, Sailor, Husband and Father, Marine Oiler and Grandfather Santos Pastoriza, 78, of New Brighton, died before his time on Thanksgiving at the VA Hospital in Brooklyn from Covid-19. Santos was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico and emigrated to Brooklyn in 1950. He never finished high school as he had to help support his family. He was drafted into the Vietnam War in 1964 and then continued to serve our country in the warzone as a merchant marine. He met Marylou, who would be the love of his life for over 40 years, in 1978. He became a step-father to Kristie, Tony, and Nicole and had his only child, Alyssia, in 1979. He continued to sail the world until he chose to give that up to be home with his family. He went on to become a deckhand for the SI Ferry and then later a marine oiler for the SI Ferry. Santos is predeceased by his brother Jaime and parents Gregorio and Crucita. He is survived by his brother Anthony and sister Diane. Santos was a loving grandfather and helped in raising his grandsons Gregory, Javan, Morgan, Cullan, and Logan. He died continuing to care for his daughter Alyssia, son-in-law Jermaine and their 7 children. The hole he left in their home when he passed will never be filled. .
