Michael F. Marino, 64

M ichael F. Marino, 64, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, Jan. 28, 2011.

Born on Sept. 4, 1946, in Whitehall, he was the son of the late Michael and Louisa (Chamberlain) Marino.
Mike worked for the Village of Whitehall for a number of years alongside his best friend, Howard Jero. He loved spending time with his family and his dog, Diesel. He was always there to lend a helping hand whenever he was needed. He also had a passion for old muscle cars. Mike showed great interest in any sporting event his children were in and was the first to say, “That’s my son.” He loved cooking for family and friends and he was always there for his children and grandchildren. A big man with a bigger heart.

Besides his parents, he is predeceased by one stepdaughter, Elisa Stark.

Survivors include his children, Shane Marino and his wife, Leah, Sabrina Ferguson and her husband, Bruce, Michelle Marino, Kate Marino, Michael Marino; stepchildren, Herb Stark and his wife, Christine, Brenda Streeter and her husband, Jon, Michelle Stark, Tricia Stark; several grandchildren, nieces, and nephews; and one sister, Fanny Wilbur.

Calling hours were held Monday, Jan. 31, at the Jillson Funeral Home, Inc., 46 Williams St., Whitehall.

A graveside service will be conducted in the spring at Greenmount Cemetery.

Expressions of sympathy may take the form of a donation to the SPCA of Upstate New York, P. O. Box 171, Hudson Falls, N.Y. 12839 in memory of his loving dog, Diesel.
