Mark J. De Bellis of Cicero, NY, passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 28, 2010, at the age of 48. Mark was raised in Manhasset and graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1979, then graduated SUNY Brockport in 1986, with a degree in economics. Mark remained in the Syracuse area where he worked as an automotive finance manager and married the love of his life and proudly raised two daughters.
Mark was very active in the Cicero community where he was a religious education teacher and teen mentor. He was a devoted husband, wonderful father, true friend and a kind neighbor. His enthusiasm, laughter, and generous spirit will be missed by many. He is survived by his wife Michelle Efimenko De Bellis; daughters Alyssa and Brittany; brother Henry De Bellis of Port Jefferson: sister Kathryn De Bellis Sullivan, of Manhasset; brothers-in-law Marc Efimenko and Andrew Efimenko, as well as nieces and nephews.
Mass and burial were held at St. Mary’s in Mineola. Condolences may be expressed to the family at 8839 Lombardi Drive, Cicero, NY 13039.
