BETANCOURT
SERGIO EDWARD
Age 79, of Pittsburgh, PA, and most recently Newton, MA, died on Thursday, July 31, 2014, after spending his final days surrounded by his treasured family. Sergio was born to Sergio Betancourt and Emma Eyerly on March 1, 1935, in Panama City, Panama. He graduated from The Hotchkiss School in 1953, and received his B.A. in English from Cornell University in 1957, where he was president of Sigma Nu fraternity and a member of the track team. Sergio received his M.D. from Cornell University in 1961 and went on to serve two tours in Vietnam as a surgeon in the Green Beret unit of the Army's Special Forces. It was in Hong Kong on one of his return trips to the U.S. that he met his future wife, Marilena Piazzi. They were married in Milan, Italy, in 1967. Sergio's love of travel and adventure led him to live and work in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America. He finally settled in Pittsburgh, PA, where he spent 32 years as a general surgeon specializing in gastric bypass surgery at Allegheny General Hospital. His indefatigable spirit and passion for his vocation were frequently noted by his colleagues and patients who remarked just how much of himself he gave to those around him. It was with this same energy and optimism that he approached all his relationships, particularly those with his two children for whom he was unwavering in his support and encouragement that they pursue their dreams. His happiest moments were spent during family get togethers, laughing, joking, and sharing meals, which preferably ended with immodest amounts of ice cream. Sergio is survived by his wife, Marilena; his daughter, Caterina and her husband, Pedro Arboleda; his son, Sergio and his wife, Danielle; and his four "nipotini," Sergio Andreas, Gabriel, Sofia, and Julia, all living in Newton, MA. He is also survived by his brother, Carlos and his wife, Christine, and their two children, Thierry and Alexia. His Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday, August 5, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. in the Chapel of the Newton Cemetery, 791 Walnut Street in Newton, MA. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Mass General Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease (MIND). To share a memory of Sergio, please visit:
