Dana M. Cilley
Dana M. Cilley, 55, of Endwell, NY, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, February 22, 2021.
Dana Cilley was born November 15, 1965 in Riverhead, NY, to David and Patricia Cilley; the immediate family's only true New Yorker. After Dana graduated from Union-Endicott High School in 1984, he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business from SUNY Binghamton.
During his high school and college years, Dana worked at Sugarman's in Vestal, NY. After college, he began his 25-year career at Olum's and became one of their top salesmen. His passion for learning the new products and their capabilities as technology continually changed was only outdone by his enthusiasm for taking awesome motorcycle rides, enjoying relaxing days at his in-laws' cottage, and the strong loving relationship with his family and friends.
Dana is survived by his loving wife, Cathy Ling-Cilley, married since October 1988. In addition to his wife, Dana is survived by his beautiful mother, Patricia, his brother David, his sisters Diane and Dawn, his brother/sister-in-law Stan and Karen, many nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews, and extended family of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Dana was predeceased by his father, David Maurice Cilley, his mother-in-law, Helen Ling, and his father-in-law, Otto Ling.
There will be a Celebration of Dana's Life planned in the spring. To those who wish to donate as an offer of sympathy during this difficult time, please consider a donation to the American Cancer Society
in memory of his late father and father-in-law, or a charity that is personal to you.
