Andre Sorrentino, Jr., a lifelong resident of Huntington, is owner of Professional Automotive Services and Sorrentino Trucking, while currently serving as Director of General Services for the Town of Huntington and Huntington Fire Commissioner.
Sorrentino is devoted family man and local entrepreneur who has been giving back to his community for over 40 years. Sorrentino credits his parents, who became American citizens and achieved the “American Dream,” with teaching him the value of hard work and instilling the sense of obligation to give back to his community. Working as a contractor for the Town of Huntington Highway Department since 1983 and the Suffolk County Department of Public Works since 1984, Sorrentino opened Professional Automotive Services (PAS Automotive) with his brother Pat in 1986. The New York Avenue-based mechanic shop provides machines, trucks, towing and other services to the first responder rescue community, including the Huntington Fire Department, Suffolk County Police Department, and Lloyd Harbor Police Department.
As Director of General Services for the Town, Sorrentino has made Heckscher Park the most beautiful it has ever been. Sorrentino’s ingenuity, cleanups and beautification projects in previously-forgotten areas across town have added to the quality of life for residents whose neighborhoods have suffered from irresponsible property owners. While the Highway Department is the only department budgeted for pre-treating and clearing roads of snow, tree and other storm debris, Sorrentino regularly delivers snow plows, heavy equipment and labor from the Department of General Services to assist with road clearing efforts.
Formed over a decade ago, the Sorrentino Family Turkey Drive raises money and donates thousands of Thanksgiving turkeys to local families in need every year. Sorrentino has a deep respect for firefighters and first responder rescue workers and serves as a Commissioner in the Huntington Fire District. Sorrentino lives in Huntington with wife, Kim, and their two young daughters.
