Daniel J. DiCaterino Sr. of McKay Rd. died peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday January 27, 2013. He was 74 years old.
Born on December 8, 1938 in Amsterdam, NY, he was the son of the late Vincenzo James DiCaterino and Mary Robilloto DiCaterino.
Mr. DiCaterino proudly served his country in the United State Marine Corp from 1957-1960.
Daniel owned the Dajim Corporation with his father for many years before he was employed as a plant manager for Transworld Fixture Company in Johnstown, NY for over 15 years, retiring in 2008.
He donated many hours to community youth organizations for several years.
His life was centered around his children and grandchildren. He loved attending all of his grandchildren's activities. Somehow he was able to fit every one of their special events into his schedule.
