Obituary

GEORGE SPERO CHACONA

   George Spero Chacona, long-time resident of Ithaca, New York, passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, May 1, 2006. George was born in Goritsa, Greece on February 1, 1945, and immigrated to the United States at the age of five. He spent much of his life living on South Hill and attended Ithaca City Public Schools. George also attended State University Colleges in New Paltz and Cortland, New York.
   From a very young age, George was drawn to music. He was deeply touched by melody and lyrics, and lived his life through the messages conveyed in music. Although he never played an instrument and could hardly carry a tune, he found many other ways to utilize song as his great communicator of love and life.
   George began his lengthy career in the music industry as manager of the local band, Boffalongo. In the late 1960's, George moved to New York City. While working for a sound company, he would often run the sound board for many well-known artists including Richie Havens, the Chambers Brothers, Humbel Pie, Van Morrison, and Santana, in the legendary venue, the Filmore East. Later George took a position at Walter Kane and Son, one of the country's largest print music publishers and distributors. In 1977, George moved back to Ithaca with his wife and son. Upon his return, he established a successful music distribution company with his long-time friend, Robert Makitten. VIP Music Distributors, Inc. located in Syracuse, New York, sold sheet music to stores throughout the United States and Canada. During the same period George rekindled his relationship with high school friend Bernie Milton, and went on to produce a number of Bernie's recordings. In recent years, George collaborated on Bernie's long running weekly radio show, "Looking Back" on WICB.
   Although George's love for music was the catalyst for his successful career, his joy and fulfillment in life was helping people. Working with various support groups, he offered his time, energy, and encouragement to others. George would often open his home to ensure that others would have a safe and comfortable place to stay. When someone was feeling down, he always knew the right thing to say or do to make them feel important, valued, and loved. Quoting a very close friend, "He saw the best in me before I could see it in myself."
   George is survived by his loving wife, Laura, devoted son, Nickolas, sister, Maria Shirmer, his loving caregiver and adopted son Carlos Lugo, and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.   Friends may call at Bangs Funeral Home Thursday evening, May 4, 2006 from 5 to 7 p.m. with Trasagion services to be held at 6:30 p.m. Funeral services are Friday, May 5, 2006 at 11 a.m. at St. Catherine Greek Orthodox Church with Rev. Stephen Lilly officiating. Memorial donations may be offered to Gadabout Transportation Services, the Finger Lakes Independent Center, or St. Catherine's Greek Orthodox Church, all located in Ithaca, New York.

Obituary

GORDON EUGENE COGGSHALL

Boonton, NJ: Gordon Eugene Coggshall, known as Gene, Papa, or Boss, age 67, died Tuesday, January 24, 2012. Born in Ithaca, New York on March 1, 1944 to the late William L. and Josephine S. Coggshall, Gene was a 1962 graduate of Ithaca High School and earned his Bachelor's degree in English from Cornell University in 1966. He went on to earn his Master's degree in Fine Arts, also from Cornell University.

After a year gallivanting across the country with his close friend Bill Snyder and a stint playing bass and singing back-up in his band, The Back Alley, Gene taught writing at Ithaca College and then worked as a technical writer at Perkin-Elmer in Danbury, Connecticut. Later, he was an executive with Lab-Volt Systems in Farmingdale. At each stop, he fixed up a fixer-upper, culminating in the complete rehabilitation of a beautiful Victorian in Allenhurst.

In his early thirties, Gene was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and retired to focus on his writing and his four children. Whether he was patiently teaching them to drive, repeatedly turning their socks pink, or making math homework complicated, Papa never let his children go without his gentle, affable presence. He attended every concert, recital, soccer practice, baseball game, and Brownie meeting. G.E. Coggshall was a prolific writer of short stories, plays, and poems, scores published by small presses and hundreds written with care and humor for his many friends and family.

Gene was predeceased by his beloved wife, Donna Brogle Coggshall, for whom he wrote clever poetry and made black coffee every morning. Surviving are his children, who inherited his love of language, cats, and ice cream, Emily Coggshall Kahn, and her husband, Daniel, Mountain Lakes, Jane Gordon Coggshall McConnochie, and her husband, Timothy, University Park, Maryland, Paul Daniel Coggshall, and his wife, Vanessa, Fanwood, and Elizabeth Learn Coggshall, and her husband, Paul Ellis, Jersey City. His grandchildren, to whom he surely passed on his love of music, puns, and ice cream, are Lily Josephine Kahn, Max William Kahn, Charlotte Simone Coggshall, George Muir McConnochie, and Emaline Lynn Coggshall. Also surviving are his siblings, William L. Coggshall, Jr., Menlo Park, California, and Joanne C. Thibadeau, Ithaca, New York.

Memorial contributions in Gene's name may be made to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation, 1359 Broadway, Suite 1509, New York, NY 10018

Gene…

I'll remember you as one of us three kids who were inseparable. It was always you, Dickie Dropkin, and me. We were pals even before kindergarten. We all lived in the same neighborhood, but we mostly played at your house. Your house was the gathering place in winter for sledding down your back hill directly into the gorge. What fun and, in retrospect, only moderately suicidal!

It was the place at the end of the block where we went exploring and looking for animal bones in the gorge. It was where we found all those dinosaur bones that suspiciously looked like horse bones. None of the books ever showed a dinosaur that looked like a horse. Nevertheless, imagination was a wonderful thing.

It was where your Grandpa's candle factory was located where we watched candles being handmade, where the bee hives where honey was collected were located, and where we helped bring in the yearly crop of peas, many of which needed to be tested before they were ready for the market.

It was the place you parked your Nash rambler (the ultimate you-know-what), we listened to your amplifier that for some reason required about 100 coats of varnish before it was perfect, and we appreciated your family who let us run wild all over the fields.

You were a key reasons we all have such great memories of growing up at the same time, in the same place, and with the same friends. Now that you're gone, it's never going to be the same again. I am really sorry to see you go.

…Bob

Coach Donald Culligan

Donald James Culligan, son, husband, United States Marine, father, grandfather, great-grandfather; former teacher, coach, and Tompkins County Representative, departed from his beloved South Hill for the next world on Sunday, November 6, 2016. Born on May 8, 1923 to Leontine Myers Culligan and George E. Culligan, Jr., Don lived an outsized life that profoundly influenced his family, students, athletes, friends, and community members. He and his late wife, Jane Elizabeth Kimple Culligan, were married for 71 years and raised 5 children: Thomas J. Culligan (Patrice, Amelia Island, FL.); Nancy J. Culligan (Ithaca, NY); Mary Ann Culligan Pitzer (Brian, Ithaca, NY); Kathryn Culligan Simon (John David Jones, Lexington, KY); and Paul G. Culligan (Michele, Troy, NY). Their home was always a lively gathering place for their extended family that included 13 grandchildren; Christa, Burke, and Brad Culligan; Patricia (Hohman), Joseph, and Susanne Yengo; Scott, Brent, and Matthew Pitzer; Claire Eileen Simon; Michael, Brian, and Kasey Culligan; and 12 great-grandchildren.
 
An alumnus of Ithaca High School (Class of 1941), Don entered the United States Marine Corps on February 12, 1943 where he was assigned to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing - Marine Night Fighter Squadron 533 based at Cherry Point, North Carolina. He served in the Pacific Theater of World War II in the Marshall Islands. A beneficiary of the GI Bill, Don earned his bachelor's degree in 1948 and his master's degree in 1951 from Ithaca College. He was a loyal supporter of Ithaca College and its athletic teams, attending many basketball and football games with friends well into his 80's.

Two years later he moved to Sherburne, NY where he coached football and basketball teams to undefeated seasons and conference championships. The Culligans had a lifelong affection for Sherburne, returning many times to visit friends and former students at class reunions.

I'm afraid I don't have an obituary for him. I have a copy of his death certificate and that's where I got my information. I do know that he was born 01 July 1943, eldest of three boys, to Marc and Daisy (Mix) DeMarc in Elmira, NY. He married a girl named June (don't have her last name) and as far as I know, had 2 children, a boy and a girl (named Jeanene and Timothy de Marc). They did divorce and he moved to Toledo and spent many years there.
I am his 1st cousin once removed. Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you with!

Obituary

Robert F. June, of 93 Old Peruville Rd., Groton, passed away peacefully in his winter home of Arcadia, Florida, Saturday, February 11, 2017 after a long battle with cancer.

Born Aug. 12, 1944 to Robert and Carmella June in New York City. He grew up in Ithaca, NY after his father returned home from WWII. He considered himself a "West Ender", playing around the train station, inlet and the West Side House. He retired from the Ithaca post office as a mail carrier in 1998 after 32 years of service. Bob, Bobby, Junebug, Juney, as he was affectionately called, was a traveler. He loved to drive and see the country in his silver van with the US states map made out of carpet remnants on the floor. Every summer he would venture to a new corner of the country, national park or curious destination. He and his two sons would spend weeks on the road, making endless memories and building bonds that will last forever. Later in life, he and his wife Jinnie explored the US in their minivan and later with their RV, from NY to Alaska, Mexico to Florida. They would eventually find that Florida, in the winter, was the place to be, hopping from state park to state park. They finally settled in "Big Tree" RV resort park, their second home, where they spent the past 12 years. Bob loved to hike, canoe and bike ride. He loved to show others the places he had been and showed them the beauty of this land through his eyes.

Bob is survived by his wife of 18 years, Jinnie Rice June; two sons, Brian (Judy) June and Timothy (Kimberly) June; two grandsons, Josh and Adam (Jenny); three granddaughters, Jackie, Mikayla and Alysha (Danny); along with several great-grandchildren. Bob is also survived by his wife's three daughters, Denise (Rob) Woods; Kimberly (Kenny) Meddaugh and Danielle (Nate) Manzer; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Bob's two sisters, Lorraine Hamilton and Karen (Richard) Wilson, along with several nieces and nephews, two aunts, an uncle and many cousins also survive him.

Family was the most important thing to Bob, but a close second were his friends. He was loyal, supportive and grateful for every relationship he had. He sustained lifelong friendships from childhood, long distance ones, and with his ex-wife Lynne and her family.

It is a comfort knowing that near the end, Bob was saved. He will be joined by his loved ones and the Lord on his final journey. Imagine when he greets you, takes you on a tour and shares his perspective of the glorious place called heaven.

A memorial service is set for Sunday, April 23, 2017 at 2pm at the Dryden Veteran's Memorial Home, a fellowship for family and friends to celebrate his life with memories, photos, music and laughter.

DAVID GERALD LIGHT
 
David Gerald Light, 61, passed away after a brief illness on February 1, 2006, at his home in Nairobi, Kenya.  David is survived by his wife, Wendy Stone and their eleven year old daughter, Mara, whom he loved so very much.  He was predeceased by his father, Ben Light, who passed away in 1971, and is survived by his mother, LaVerne.  He is also survived by his brother Gordon and Gordon's children, Kimberly (Kiki) and Cory; his brother Charles; and his brother Terry (Amina), and Terry and Amina's children, Sabah and Abi; and many cousins, friends and colleagues too numerous to mention.
 
Born in Ithaca in 1944, David graduated from Ithaca High School in 1962.  A talented musician, he studied violin and then the guitar.  After high school he could be found playing with bands at venues throughout Ithaca.  Called into the Army in the late 1960's, he was first stationed in Asmara, Ethiopia (now Eritrea).  He formed a small band there, which became a favorite of then Emperor Haile Selassie.  After a year in Viet Nam, where he earned the bronze star, David returned to Ithaca College to obtain his degree.  He studied guitar with Professor Steve Brown, and became a highly accomplished classical and jazz guitarist.
 
After graduating in 1972, David bought some camping equipment and set out to explore Ethiopia.  While wandering the mountains and high deserts, he met his future employer, and accepted employment with Service & Supply International, a logistics company doing business in Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, ultimately becoming Managing Director of SSI.  His brother Terry joined him as a camp manager, also quickly becoming a vital part of the company.
 
In the 1980's, David left SSI and joined a company started by Terry in Kenya, Africa Expeditions, Ltd., initially provided tented safaris in East Africa.  David brought his business skills to the company and he and Terry expanded its mission to serve relief organizations in East Africa, including most recently in the Darfur region of the Sudan.  David met Wendy, a professional photographer, in Nairobi, and Mara was born there.
 
David was laid to rest in Laikipia, in the foothills of the Aberdare mountains north of Nairobi.  He was buried under a boscia tree, known as the Tree of Life, for the shelter and sustenance it provides to humans and animals in that beautiful part of the world that David came to love so much.  He will be deeply missed by his family and all those who knew and loved his gentle soul and warm smile.

From Gary Iloff on December 5th, 2012
Image OK, Here is what was said in the Annual picture on page 168:

"Bullwinkle, it's cold out here today and you need a hat on." said Coach Moresco.

"Yes, Coach, it is and by the way Coach, I had one just like yours." said Bullwinkle who thought..."Then I GOT A JOB."

You can clearly notice that I am not too close to the Coach and that is because I was sure he would pull me up off the ground by the back of my pants. It was called...THE SINGING WITH THE GIRLS. The attention getter. He later wrote in my '62 Annual, "WE SURE HAD A LOT OF FUN." and signed it, "COACH MORESCO". And we did.
 
From Bill Thomas on December 27th, 2012
I had the pleasure and good fortune to be in the Geometry class that Coach Moresco taught.  It was loaded with jocks and he really explained everything extremely well.  I think if I had been in a different class I woulda flunked but instead I almost aced the NY State final exams.   My hat's off to you Coach.  My glass is raised to a wonderful person and a great teacher.  Thanks for all you did!

If........ (by Preeti Kaur Khalsa, part of her poem)

If everyone takes, then who will freely give?
If all innocents die, then who can truly live?
If we covet the power, can we hold the trust?
If we live for the moment, what is future, but dust?

Truth has been told, but so few have lived it.
Doors to healing are open, but we create limit.
Courage, prayer, kindness can open each gate,
But caught in the fear, we don't think/walk/talk straight.

If everyone takes, then who will freely give?

Obituary

MILLER, Sandra S. 72, of Newfield, NY (formerly of Norwich, NY and Ithaca, NY) passed away Saturday, June 18, 2016 surrounded by family at Cayuga Medical Center.
 
Sandy was born in May 1944 in Lafayette, IN. As a child, Sandy was fortunate enough to travel to many locations across the world due to the demand for her father's expertise. She worked for many years at Ithaca College, most recently as Warehouse Supervisor. She enjoyed buying and selling collectibles at various antique shows, including the long-term booth she had at Tioga Downs Antiques and General Marketplace. Sandy also sold advertising and collectible toys with her son Mark through their shared website. Sandy was well known for her quick wit, great sense of humor and her knack for puns. Frogs were her favorite and her fear of spiders might be seen as comical by some. Sandy was a loving mother and grandmother.
 
She is predeceased by her mother and father Margaret and Floyd Slate, and her daughter Denise VanAmburg of Watkins Glen. She is survived by her sister Sally (Tom) McEnteer of Owego, NY and brother Rex (Maggie) Slate of Bulgaria. She is also survived by her son, Mark (Alicia) Miller of Moon Township, PA; son-in-law Tom VanAmburg of Watkins Glen; and three grandchildren, Brian and Jessica VanAmburg of Nashville TN, and Emily Miller, of Moon Township, PA, as well as several cousins, nieces and nephews.
 
Relatives and friends may call Friday, June 24, 2016 at Royce-Chedzoy Funeral Home, 212 E. 4th St. in Watkins Glen from 4-6pm. A Graveside service celebrating Sandra's life will take place at 9:30am Saturday, June 25, 2016 at Pleasant View Cemetery in Reading Center, NY.

Sherry was especially devoted to her husband not allowing the disease to affect her running a household up until the day before she entered the hospital. Sherry attended Ithaca High School and was a member of the cheerleading squad and was elected "Miss IHS" in her senior year. Sherry had a passion for modern and interpretive dance and for her palomino horse, Pyewacket. She was an active member of the Tompkins County (NY) Horsemen's Assn. and became their "Horsewoman of the Year" for 1970. She was a 1966 graduate of Cortland State Teachers College with a major in Health Education.

Obituary

ITHACA - Bunny O'Brien/Schassburger, age 63, a retired head nurse and manager of Ithaca Dialysis, and nurse practitioner for its medical director, Dr. Robert Hesson, died Saturday morning, January 26, 2008, at her residence.

She was born in Ithaca, a daughter of Edwin and Betty Watson. Bunny had been with her husband, Ron Schassburger, since March 30, 1989, and the two had been a loving couple ever since, with their formal marriage on May 12, 2007 at their home. Theirs was a fairy tale courtship and romance that grew in love and affection day by day from the time they met until she died, and will live well beyond.

Bunny was formally trained as a nurse and nurse practitioner, with her care touching numerous lives over the past forty years. While highly respected for her medical competency, she was even more widely known for her compassionate care, kind bedside manner, and always placing the needs of her patients above all else. Her peers recognized not only these qualities but also remember her for her vibrancy and how she lit up a room with her very presence - always a warm smile and a twinkle in her eyes. Bunny's children and grandchildren were among her highest priorities, providing her with her greatest sense of self-satisfaction. Her unconditional love brought Ron into their family and the house they built became a home. As she cared for her children, she cared for Ron and gave him equal love. Her character can be summarized in one word… unselfish, as she always placed others needs first and was most fulfilled in helping and watching others succeed.

She will be greatly missed by her loving husband, Ron Schassburger, and their two dogs, Brandy and Lily; a daughter, Kelly O'Brien; two sons, Christopher O'Brien and Sean (Amy) O'Brien; three grandchildren, Mary O'Brien, Rachel O'Brien and Finnegan O'Brien; her parents, Edwin and Betty Watson; a brother, Robert (Karen) Watson; three sisters, Mary (David) Bernstein, Sarah (Nicholas) Prisco, and Judith Atkins; as well as several nieces and nephews.

A private service will be held on Tuesday evening, with an open memorial reception to be held on Wednesday, January 30, 2008, from 5-8 p.m. at Willow Restaurant, 202 East Fall Street, Ithaca. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Bunny O'Brien/Schassburger Pancreatic Cancer Memorial Fund, P.O. Box 285, Freeville, NY 13068.

Obituary

ANTHONY WOODWARD

Man's Death is Reported in Austria
     The death of Anthony Woodward, 22, an Ithacan who was reported missing Dec. 26, 1967, in the Austrian Alps, was confirmed when Danish tourists found his body last Saturday in the vicinity of Maryhofen in the Austrian province of Tyrol, it was reported today.
     Woodward was discovered at the base of the 600-foot cliff, partially buried under some stones, about three hours walking distance from the hotel at which he had been a guest.
     It is presumed that death was instantaneous.
     The body of the victim, the son of Mr. and Mrs. William H. Woodward of 927 Cayuga Heights Rd., was identified by Luis Bachmann, a family friend, who is a professor at the University of Innsbruck in Austria.  Bachmann was at Cornell for a semester and lived at the Telluride House at the same time that "Tony" Woodward was a Telluride scholar.
     A Memorial service for Woodward, organized by his friends from the Ithaca community and Telluride Assn. and some friends from London who are currently in the United States, will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday in the One World Room, Anabel Taylor Hall.  There will be no burial, the body will be cremated in Austria.
     Besides his parents, he is survived by a sister Gracia, who will enter Cornell this fall as a freshman.
     Woodward was graduated from Ithaca High School in June 1962 and entered Cornell the following September.  In 1964 he took a leave of absence from the university and went to England, where he worked, studied drama, and last fall enrolled at the University of London for the study of literature.
     Because there was little snow in the town of Maryhofen last Dec. 26, and consequently no skiing, Woodward apparently thought it was safe to hike alone.  He had written glowing accounts of the scenery of the area to his family, and he possibly wanted to see some of the picturesque plateaus again.  At higher altitudes there apparently was snow covering a bed of dangerous ice beneath and it is believed Woodward may have slipped and gone over the steep cliff.  There is also the possibility that he may have been in the line of an avalanche.
