Rotterdam - John L. D’Amico, 75, passed away Sunday, November 10th, 2019.
He was born to the late Francesco and Angelena D’Amico on April 18, 1944 in Schenectady and married Maria Liparoto, the love of his life on August 17, 1969. They lived together in Rotterdam for over 50 years.
John was an electrician, retiring from the State of New York in 2003. He was also a skilled mechanic, plow and heavy equipment operator. A “jack of all trades”, he was often seen tooling around Schenectady in his dump truck.
