Minotti; Cecilia (Minotti) DiLallo, and brother-in-law, John DiLallo; Angeline (Minotti) Lisano and brother-in-law, Richard Lisano; brothers, Serafino J. Minotti and sister-in-law, Serafina M.

Following a lifetime passion to play baseball, Tony became the catcher for the Elmira Pioneers, in August of 1941. Hopes for a major league career were suddenly put on hold when he received his draft notice to go into World War II after the first full season on the Pioneers. Tony was happy to play exhibition baseball with other major leaguers entertaining the troops throughout Europe before becoming disabled during military preparations for the Invasion of Normandy. In 1946 after having returned home from the war, Tony continued to receive invitations to try out for other baseball organizations. Even the Brooklyn Dodger's invited him to try out for a position in their minor league organization. Unfortunately, his war injuries prevented him from realizing any future career in baseball. Later in life, his love for the outdoors, photography, model trains, gardening, and reading, were only surpassed by his love of his family. He suffered from late stage Alzheimer's for the last several years of his life, but always maintained his wonderful sense of humor. Family and friends are invited to call at the McInerny Funeral Home, corner of Water and Walnut Sts., on Sunday, March 7, 2010 from 4 p.m. - 7p.m. A prayer service will be held at the funeral home on Monday, March 8, 2010 at 9:15 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. at St. Mary's Church, Elmira.

MONTE Joseph G. Monte
Age 85 of Horseheads, NY died on Friday October 8, 2010. It all began in Wilkes Barre, PA on August 1, 1925, the day I was born, Dead! That was what the doctor told my dad, and then put me on the dresser covered with a sheet. Dad kept telling the doctor he was wrong. The doctor told my dad that he had to take care of my mother. Dad continued to watch the sheet bundle on the dresser. After a while he saw the sheet move, "Doctor" he said "My Boy Is Alive" I coughed and the doctor heard me. Here I am 85 years later I'm now reaching my destiny. I grew up to do many things, held odd jobs here and there. I was brought up on a farm in Granville Summit, PA ten miles south of Troy and east of Canton, PA. I went to Windfall grade school and then to Troy High School. I left after 2 ½ years to join the Navy. Not for long, I ended up with a perforated ear drum and was Honorably Discharged. My family moved to Elmira in 1942, after more odd jobs I finished school at Southside High School. I decided I wanted to see the country. I went to Buffalo for 6 months and worked as a payroll clerk at the American Radiator. I then went south for the winter and from there went to California. After traveling with the boss of a cab company, I told him I wanted to see the country. He then told me I could see a lot by owning my own cab which he put me in. I did this for 3 years and then I got word that my dad wasn't feeling well and went back home. I couldn't find a job so I bought a pick-up truck for doing odd jobs. I went to work for Bendix and in 1958 was laid off and went into the restaurant business and worked in that field until I retired. I met my wife while I worked at Bendix. In 1966 I started running the Elbow Room which I named. In 1971 I built the El Monte Motel to run in conjunction with El Monte's Restaurant in Fisherville. I completely retired in 2002. During my life I belonged to the Elmira Eagles, Big Flats American Legion, Elmira Elks Lodge #62, Moose Club, Masonic Lodge #378 in Big Flats as a life member of all.
