Daniel Alphonse DeFillippo

Daniel Alphonse DeFillippo, 67 passed away on February 20th, 2020. He was born on February 13, 1953 in Wichita Falls, TX to Alphonse and Margaret DeFillippo. Daniel grew up in an Air Force family therefore much of his early life was spent traveling throughout the United States.

Daniel and his family eventually settled in the Village of Ballston Spa where he met his wife Carol Clas, together they had a son Matthew. Daniel spent many years as a respected and trusted construction worker who knew the business inside and out. He forever left his mark by laying foundations for countless homes and businesses throughout the tri-state area and beyond.

His life is defined by many cherished relationships, love of family, and being a good neighbor. Dan had the ability to bring a smile to just about anyone's face. He never fell short on friends, and his unmistakable laugh would announce his presence long before you knew he was in the room.

Daniel is survived by his parents, Alphonse and Margaret DeFillippo of Ballston Spa; Carol DeFillippo of Garner, NC; son Matthew DeFillippo and his family of Phoenix, AZ, step-daughter Denise Jones and her family of Ballston Spa; sisters Patricia Fitzgerald, Donna Kane, Karen Vandy, Deborah Bouchard, and their families all of Ballston Spa, and brother Peter DeFillippo and his family of Florida.

Dear DeFillippo Family,

My heart goes out to your today.
I have such fond memories of each of your family members, charming, smart, industrious-no two alike. But all of you good citizens and a credit to your mom and dad. Ballston Spa was graced by your commitment to our community.

A little story....when our sons, Dan and Matt were small, I’d bring them up to Doubleday field for the softball game. Hockey’s sons, Phillip, Tony, Jimmy, Nic, and John were on Ed’s team. Once, we were allowed to sit up in the announcer’s box. Each of the boy’s names was announced at bat. When it was Ed’s turn, our Dan called out, “Eddie De Fillippo Lake!”
It seemed that if you lived in B Spa, and played softball, you must be a DeFillippo, too!

Thinking of you all.
