Giuseppe Sortino Grave marker


This grave marker which is at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, located at
179 Hackensack Avenue, Hackensack, New Jersey reveals that Giuseppe Sortino served in the U.S. Army during World War I and died at the age of 81.

Giuseppe Sortino was not on the original World War I Honor Roll List, which was in the Bergen Evening Record October 5, 1918, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.
