Born in Hoboken, Sasso earned bachelor's and master's degrees in chemistry from Rutgers. He was a nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopist for 39 years. He retired from Hoffmann-La Roche, in Nutley, in 2012.

Sasso was an active member of St. Peter and Paul Orthodox Church, and a past choir member and treasurer.

He is survived by his wife Sandra (Kopycinski) Sasso; son Damiano and his wife Jennifer; siblings Louise Bloomer and her husband Tom, Frances Kovarcik and her husband Robert, Pat Romano, and Rose Scardigno and her husband Sam; and nieces and nephews.

Sasso was predeceased by his parents, Damiano and Biagia (Scardigno) Sasso, and his brother-in-law, Peter Romano.

The funeral will be held at the Calhoun-Mania Funeral Home on Friday, Feb. 17, gathering at 9:30 a.m. for a 10:30 prayer service, followed by interment in Graceland Memorial Park Cemetery, 1900 Galloping Hill Rd., in Kenilworth.
