Daniel Gelsomino Obituary

PRINCETON - Daniel Scott "Danny" Gelsomino, 44, of Addison, Ill., formerly of Princeton, passed away and lost his heroic battle with cancer on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, at Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, Ill.

He was the beloved son of Jeanie and Vince Gelsomino of Princeton. Danny was born on March 21, 1969 in Joliet, Ill.

His parents survive, along with a loving sister, Amy Gelsomino of Peoria, Ill. Also surviving are two children, Kasey and Nathan Gelsomino of Elmhurst, who were the joys of his life and who inspired him to fight so bravely during his 25-month battle.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Mary and Arthur Residori and Josephine and Joseph Gelsomino; a special aunt, Mary Ann Stasko; two uncles, Ronald Stasko and Richard Mikuska; and a cousin, Ronnie Stasko, all of Joliet.

He attended Princeton schools and was a 1987 graduate of Princeton High School. During his high school years, he was active in band, basketball and baseball. Danny loved playing the drums. Danny attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind., and graduated in 1991 with a bachelor's degree in communications. He avidly followed Purdue football and basketball programs, even after graduation.

He had an illustrious career in software sales, achieving many awards for his expertise and work ethic. He was an inspiration to friends and co-workers all during his career. He most recently was Director of Alliances for Accenture and traveled to New York regularly.

Danny was happiest when he could attend Kasey and Nathan's activities, including Kasey's Irish dance competitions and Nathan's hockey, basketball and soccer games. He was a die-hard Cubs fan and also loved the Blackhawks, Bears and Chicago Bulls.

Danny was the recipient of proceeds from the 2013 Jay Braida Memorial Golf Open, an event that truly celebrated his life. He felt very humble to be selected for this outstanding event.

Cremation rites have been accorded. Inurnment will be at a later date at Oakland Cemetery in Princeton. No public visitation will be held. All services will be private.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to The Gelsomino Children's Trust Fund, c/o Ron Griggs, 4205 Royal Fox Drive, St. Charles, IL, 60174.
