Rotterdam – Cesidio “Sid” DiMascio, 78, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, August 23rd, 2018 at Ellis Hospital with his family by his side.
Born in Saranac Lake, NY, Sid was the son of the late Patrick and Angela (Tagliaferro) DiMascio.
Sid graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School and the College of St. Rose.
A member of the GE Quarter Century Club, Sid worked in many capacities throughout General Electric, retiring as a supervisor in the Steam Turbine Department.
Sid was an avid outdoorsman and member of the Tribes Hill Fish and Game Club, enjoying hunting and fishing whenever he could. Throughout Sid’s life he loved music, specifically playing the accordion in his band, the Four Sounds. For 14 years, Sid, along with his wife, Fran, called Ormond Beach, FL home. While there they enjoyed socializing with their friends and their family members who came to visit. Once returning to the area, Sid and Fran became members of Open Arms Church. Sid’s compassionate heart and sense of humor spread joy to all who were around him. Above all things in life, Sid loved his family and spending quality time with his children and grandchildren.
Besides his parents, Sid was also predeceased by one grandchild, Esme DiMascio.
