A short obituary in the Winston-Salem Journal marks the passing of Raymond Serrano, whom Ballet Talk-ers will remember as a member of American Ballet Theatre. It is noted that he was in the original cast of Tudor's Leaves Are Fading and was also a wonderful character actor-dancer. He is survived by his wife Christine Spizzo Serrano and other family. No service is planned.
This is sad news. 60 is far too young to pass. I remember him well at ABT during the 1970s. Seeminly shy and reserved, he was in nearly every ballet that required character or demi character dancing. I believe after his retirement from dancing he became the company masseur. He was one of the faces of ABT and will be missed.

My deepest sympathies to his family. Christine Spizzo was also one of my favorite ABT dancers. I still miss her feet in the "Swan Lake" pas de trois.
