Michael A. Zelesnik, 60, of Mattydale, passed away on October 15th at home unexpectedly. He was born in Syracuse to Beverly A. (Stone) Coville and J. Barry Zelesnik.

Michael was brought back to his property in Canastota where he enjoyed the beauty of the view and land. A special thank you to Jackie and Dana for all their love and support through this difficult time. We would like to also thank Michael Nichols for the memories that made us all smile.
