Chuck Serritella

There will be farewell gathering for Chuck Serritella today, at 3 p.m. in Lab 6 in the Village.

Chas Serritella’s needed a helping hand for a job at Fermilab in 1980. Serritella volunteered, and it wasn’t long before Serritella was working at the laboratory full time. He retires on Oct. 5.

One of the earliest projects Serritella worked on was installing the double magnets in the Tevatron.

“The Tevatron was a milestone,” he said. “It helped make the laboratory what it is.”

With the recent Tevatron shut down, Serritella opted to begin his retirement.

“It’s been a good ride,” said Serritella, who lives in Batavia. “I’m just going to stop working.”
