Biography

He worked full-time as a jeweler while competing, but later became a gymnastics coach at Panzer College in New Jersery, started his own gymnastics school in Westchester County and also judged gymnastics competitions. After moving to Sarasota, Florida in the 1960s, he became involved in several business ventures, including the development of two condominium projects on Siesta Key and co-owning a Shells seafood restaurant. D’Autorio was inducted into the US Gymnastic Hall of Fame in 1971. In 1988 he carried the Olympic Torch as it passed thru Sarasota.
