Obituary: Henry Dermigny

Henry Dermigny of Jamesport died Jan. 21 at Good Shepherd Hospice in Port Jefferson. He was 82-years-old.

 

Born Dec. 15, 1930, in Hempstead to Henry and Anne Dermigny, he had worked as a heavy-equipment operator in the Village of Mineola.

 

He was a member of many volunteer fire departments including Mineola, FDNY Aux. Stony Creek “ex-chief” and Garnet Lake. His last duty was safety officer for the Jamesport Fire Department. He was dedicated to preserving the history of the volunteer firefighters by restoring trucks and apparatus. He belonged to the Long Island Antique Fire Apparatus Association.

 

Dermigny was a semi-pro hockey player in his youth. Friends said he enjoyed fishing, boating and making model trains and fire trucks.

 

Predeceased by his wife, Marilyn, in 2005, he is survived by many friends.

 

Visiting hours took place Jan. 23 at McLaughlin Heppner Funeral Home in Riverhead. A funeral Mass was held Jan. 24 at St. Isidore R.C. Church in Riverhead, followed by internment at Nassau Knolls Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made in his honor to the Multiple Myeloma Foundation, Good Shepherd Hospice or the Firemen’s Home on the Hudson.


News

Peter Zuckerman is running as the Democratic Party’s incumbent candidate for 2nd District on the Town of North Hempstead Council. The district encompasses the villages in the Mineola area. 

 

“Nine months ago, I was recommended by Supervisor Judi Bosworth and approved with bipartisan support of the Town Board. This has been a dream job for me,” Zuckerman told the

Mineola American, on explaining why he is running for office. “I had the pleasure of serving the residents of the incorporated Village of East Hills for 11 great years, but this job has given me the opportunity to expand the area I represent and, thus, the opportunity to be of service to a greater number of people.”

The Mineola School Board will hold a public hearing on the much-debated New York State veterans exemption on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the Willis Avenue School. It is expected the board will either approve or disapprove the tax exemption during its regular meeting at 7 p.m.


Sports

Samantha Pastore

Samantha Pastore, senior and third-year varsity player, is also co-captain of the currently undefeated (11-0) Mineola Girls Varsity Volleyball team. She is an outside hitter and is often recognized in games by starting rallies with her quick thinking and nimble feet. She earns 20 percent of the team’s points and averages four aces per match.

The Mineola Mustangs varsity football team fell to the Seaford Vikings last week 27-21, missing their chance to tie the top seeds Locust Valley and Roosevelt’s 6-1 Nassau conference IV record.

 

After tying the game in the second half and having the opportunity to capitalize on Seaford’s failed extra-point kick on their final touchdown, the Viking’s senior wide receiver/defensive back Bobby Buell knocked away a pass from Mineola senior quarterback James Gerstner to senior wide receiver Brian Smith in the end-zone with 57 seconds left
