Michael G. Mandry died November 29, 2021, in St. Luke’s Hospital of Covid-19.
He was born May 28, 1956, in St. Luke’s to Helen and Alphonse Mandry. He attended St. Stanislaus grade school and graduated from Proctor High in the top ten of his class. He received his BA in mathematics from Colgate University and his BS in physics from Utica College. He then enjoyed a long career as a systems engineer at Integrated Sensors Inc. in Utica and as a research engineer at RAS, Research Associates of Syracuse, in Rome NY.
In his youth Mike played ice hockey, his favorite sport. He also enjoyed running and often participated in the Boilermaker. He took many long excursions on his bicycle covering most of Oneida and Herkimer counties. He also cruised the roads on his motorcycle. He liked being outdoors for work and for play.
He was generous and helpful to friends and neighbors and entertained them with his unique sense of humor. He liked solving problems, fixing and building things, and always relished the challenges of coming up with the right solutions in his woodworking shop.
Mike always had a pet cat or two or three and was devoted to caring for his feline friends.
He had a special fondness for the Adirondack region and, as an armchair history buff, he became an expert on its legend and lore. He also had an interest in the history of Utica and would visit the Oneida County Historical Society to learn more.
He leaves his longtime and loving partner Patty Pantola of Utica, his sister Kathy Mandry Cohn, a brother-in-law Martin Cohn, a nephew Aaron Cohn all of San Francisco, and a collection of cousins.
Many thanks to Mike’s caring nurses and physicians at St. Luke’s Hospital.
A gathering for friends and family will be planned in the coming year.
