Gregory D’Ascoli of Southold, New York died on September 12, 2009 of colon cancer, which he fought to the very end with dignity and strength.
Greg was a graduate of Iona Prep., St. Francis College and Fordham University. For 35 years, he was a math teacher at Mamaroneck H.S. After retirement, Greg and his wife Denise Finnigan moved to the North Fork which offered him the opportunity to enjoy his love of photography, gardening, cooking and boating which he did to the fullest. His generous and gentle ways touched the lives of so many and he will be deeply missed.
Greg is the son of the late Ralph and Helen (nee Kopka); husband of Denise; brother of Bonaventure (deceased), Raphael (Trish), Thais (Len) Duda, Virginia (Raymond) Koch, Joel (Anna) and Danielle Iagallo. Also survived by step-children Alison (Mike) McCarren, Joseph (Laurie) McCarren and their son Jack, and eleven nieces and nephews.
A Memorial Service is being planned for a later date. If you wish, a donation to East End Hospice, P.O. Box 1078, Westhampton Beach, New York 11978 would be appreciated.
