Dan Matrese, 63, of Cleona, passed away on Dec. 23, 2021, after being struck with COVID-19.

Born in Albany, NY on March 29, 1958, he was the son of the late Neil and Louise (Fleig) Matrese.

He graduated from Bishop McDevitt in 1976 and had recently retired. Dan loved tinkering with cars and was a kind, thoughtful, and warm person who loved his family and friends.

He is survived by his siblings, Neil, Jr. (Diane), Adeline Hankins (Ronald); many nieces and nephews; and his companion, Arlene Nelson.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Stephen Matrese.

Due to COVID-19 surging at this time, services will be private. Burial will be at Calvary Cemetery in Glenmont, NY.

Dan’s family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks to the doctors, nurses, and aides at Good Samaritan Hospital for their dedication, compassion, and kindness.
