Obituary for Harry Dominic Marinelli Harry Dominic Marinelli, 59, of Holiday Travel Cove Resort, Leesburg FL and Malone, NY ended his eight yearlong battle with cancer on Friday May 24, 2019 at 5 pm. He was a true warrior who overcame several bouts of lymphoma through a stem cell transplant, and then went on to battle metastatic lung cancer that moved to his brain. He fought to his last day bravely choosing end stage chemotherapy over hospice care. He was a true modern day hero. His strength and determination inspired many people, and his updates and posts on Facebook made a difference in hundreds of lives. Born on May 9, 1960 to Evelyn Grace Lengenfelder and Harry Thomas Marinelli in Philadelphia, PA, he was the first of three siblings. John Marinelli followed closely after and a sister, Cynthia Marinelli Bonanni, arrived last. He attended Catholic grade school in Florence, NJ and went on to graduate from Holy Cross Catholic High School in 1978. He then married his high school sweetheart, Anne Marie McDonough Marinelli Sheridan, and had one son, Dominic Marinelli, shortly after. The marriage ended in divorce. He worked in real estate through his family business of Marinelli Realty as well as a surveyor, but spent much of his career working at the Talk of The Town/Shop Rite as first a dairy manager then assistant store manager and was known and loved by many. He moved to Malone, NY after the store closed in the late 1990s where he owned a camp in Owls Head, NY as well as two apartment complexes in Malone. There he went on to meet his life partner, Alexander D. Pacific, and to earn his Associate’s degree from North Country Community College in Alcohol and Chemical Abuse Substance Counseling. He earned his CASAC certification and was hired full time from his internship at St. Joseph’s Treatment and Addiction Center in Malone, NY where he again touched many lives with his infectious humor, radiant smile, and compassionate ear until his battle with cancer forced him to stop work. He was known by all in the community and was a second father to Alexander’s two children, Alexander J. and Elinor Pacific, raising them along with Alexander and traveling with them throughout NY, NJ, and PA. He spent his final few years at Holiday Travel Cove Resorts in Leesburg, FL at first as a snow bird, and then, as his metastatic cancer advanced, full time to receive care from Orlando Health. He was again known and loved by many at the park and a valued member of the community. He is survived by Alexander D. Pacific and his children, his son Dominic Marinelli and his fiancé Amy Speegle, his two siblings, and several cousins in the NJ area. He was predeceased by his parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Harry was a bright light to all who knew him and a beacon of hope. His legacy of wit, determination, and bravery will last for all the lifetimes of those that he touched so deeply. A scholarship to North Country Community College in Malone, NY for the Alcohol and Chemical Abuse Counseling program is being established in his name and contributions can be made directly to Alexander D. Pacific via Facebook or mail until the details are in place. Online condolences may be left at www.beyersfuneralhome.com Arrangements entrusted to Beyers Funeral Home and Crematory, Leesburg, FL.
