DELMAR — Michael Fasulo, a graphic designer and salesman, was a man of faith who loved his daughters dearly.

He died unexpectedly at his Delmar home on Sunday, Dec. 17, 2017. He was 55.

Born in Pennsylvania, he grew up in Delmar, graduating from Bethlehem Central High School in 1980. He then went to the State University of New York College at Cortland, where he graduated with a bachelor of arts degree. It was at Cortland that he met the woman who would become his wife, Elisa.

“Winning awards for his performance on the track team, Mr. Fasulo was a long jumper and sprinter, still holding records at his high school to this day,” his family wrote in a tribute.

After graduating from Cortland, he earned a degree in advertising design and strategy from Parsons School of Design in New York City, and went on to found his own graphic-design business and game company, Reindeer Games Inc., before pursuing sales for the remainder of his life. He earned dozens of top sales awards and accreditations for his stints at corporate and boutique sales agencies.

Mr. Fasulo was a man of faith, and regularly attended Bethel Full Gospel in Rotterdam.

“His passions were his girls, whom he adored beyond words,” his family wrote in a tribute. “A man of animal compassion, he loved all the various pets he had over the years.

“Adored by his high school and college friends, Michael was perhaps best known for his humor. Nothing made his day more than being able to make people laugh. Known equally well for his art talent and musical ability, Michael was able to sit down at any instrument and start playing a song.”

****

Michael Fasulo is survived by his children, Alexandra and Allegra Fasulo. He was also a father to Eliza Rose Vera, and was a best friend and brother to Jeffrey Looman and his best friend, Lisa Fasulo. (This group was also known as “Squad Fasulo.”)

He is also survived by his mother, Marijo Dougherty; his father, Carmen Fasulo; his sisters, Gabrielle, Teresa, and Andrea Fasulo; and his brother, Patrick Fasulo.

Calling hours will be held at the Fredendall Funeral Home at 199 Main Street in Altamont on Thursday, Dec. 21, from 4 to 6 p.m. A brief service will follow at 6 p.m.

Memorial contributions may be made to Bethel Full Gospel Building Fund at 3669 Guilderland Ave., Schenectady NY  12306.
