John A. DeMasi of Millbrook, NY and long time resident of Mahopac passed away on July 22, 2017 at the age of 82. He was born on July 24, 1934 in New Rochelle, NY the son of Frank and Natalina (Cirillo) DeMasi. On February 6, 1955 he married Sandra Grosso, his high school sweetheart; they were married for over 62 years. John worked as a sales manager for Prudential for many years and was a proud veteran of the US Army having served during the Korean War.

John was a die-hard Yankees fan and an avid golfer. The New York Yankees offered him a tryout, but he could not attend because he was already drafted and deployed overseas. He was a man of family, spending as much time with his wife, children, and grandchildren as possible. Even when his children were young, he never missed their games and would often time show up to events in the suit he wore to work that day.

John is survived by his wife Sandy, his son John, Jr. and his wife Janina, his daughter Debbie Omuleski and her husband Ed, his daughter Dawn Oddo and her husband Dominick, his sister Mary DiMaggio and her husband Frank, his grandchildren John III (Christine), Christopher, Dominick, Anthony, Kaitlyn, Natalie, Tara, and Nicholas as well as many nieces, nephews, and brother and sister in laws. He was predeceased by his sister Isabella Camillone and her husband Lou.

Friends and family are welcome to attend a visitation on Tuesday, July 25th from 4-8 PM at the Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home in Mahopac, NY.
