Stephen Richard Parelli

Jan 23, 1953 - Feb 19, 2024

location-icon

Bronx, NY

Stephen Richard Parelli was born in Syracuse, New York State on January 23, 1953 to Richard Parelli and Dorothy Mills. He was the eldest of three children. At a young age he became a follower of Jesus. He was actively involved in his church’s youth group and in his Senior year, lived with Christian missionaries on the island of Martinique, France for several months. There he gained a love of languages and the many cultures of the world. Steve pursued his love of ministry by attending Baptist Bible College where he attained his BA of Bible and BRE (Bachelors of Religious Education). He went on to seminary at Grand Rapids Baptist Seminary to get a Masters of Divinity. He married and had 4 children. His service as Youth Pastor and later Senior Pastor spanned almost 20 years. However, marriage and ministry did not change his orientation as gay man. In 1997 Steve became partners with Jose Ortiz. They later married in 2008 when NY State decided to recognize same-sex marriage licenses of couples who married in other states that had legalized such unions. In 2004 Steve felt the call to share their story of being gay Christians with the resistant yet increasingly aware Christian community worldwide. In Mexico, for the first time Steve and Jose shared their experiences and understanding of how their orientation and faith were reconciled. Thus began their involvement of 13 years of sharing the good news of God’s inclusion in 30 countries around the world when Steve became the executive director of an NGO called Other Sheep. This organization, which started in Argentina, worked for the full inclusion of sexual minorities within the respective faith traditions. He also earned a MA in Teaching ESL and for a time taught English to Spanish-speaking adult students in his home. Steve loved Biblical languages, history, nature, camping, and travel. His world travel spanned 60 countries mostly with his husband and sometimes alone. Steve is survived by his brother Jeff, and the children from his first marriage: Jennifer, Heidi and Christopher. His eldest daughter Rebecca Hamdy predeceased him in 2016 but left him a son-in-law Ammar Hamdy of Alexandria, Egypt, who is like a true son. Steve leaves behind his husband and life partner of 27 years - Jose Ortiz. He will be remembered as a joyful, witty, wise and caring person who loved making new friends everywhere he went, be it the subways of NYC or the crowded train stations of India. Those who met Steve noted right away his love of people, deep and intelligent conversations, adventure and seeing new places. He will be missed by friends world-wide as he is joyfully received in the realms of Glory where his Savior will wrap him the biggest, warmest, and most satisfying embrace.

Matthew Genovese

Aug 31, 1930 - Feb 21, 2024

location-icon

Bronx, NY

At the blessed age of 93, Matthew Genovese departed this world peacefully on February 21st, 2024. The final days of his long life were passed with his children and close family. Matthew, or Grandpa Matty as he was known to his grandchildren, was born to Henry and Edith Genovese on August 31st, 1930. Born in Newark, New Jersey, he was raised in East Harlem, New York where he met his future wife Rita (née Zanfardino). In 1952, while serving his country in the Korean War, the two wed. In the Pelham Bay section of the Bronx, Matty and Rita built a beautiful home together to raise their two children Robert and Deborah. After leaving the army Matty worked as an electrician in a family-owned business specializing in outdoor illuminating lighting servicing the Tri-State area. Throughout the city he would set up the annual Christmas lights and lighting for street festivals, which many longtime residents of New York now fondly recall for their vintage charm and nostalgia. He ended his career as a New York City rent inspector, however what Matty was most famous and admired for was his superb cooking. Whether it be the celebration of the seven fishes on Christmas Eve or a summer BBQ, family and friends always knew with Matty they could expect a delicious and lavish meal! A supporting father, and a doting grandfather, Matthew has bid farewell-for-now to two children, a daughter-in-law, eight grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. His death comes less than a month after his wife of nearly 72 years passed away on January 25th, at nearly 93 years of age. Their family’s sadness in losing both loved ones so rapidly, is soothed by the knowledge that Matty is reunited with his beloved wife Rita and his previously departed grandson and namesake Matt. A visitation is scheduled at Sisto funeral home in the Bronx on February 27th from 3pm to 8pm. A mass of Christian burial at the Catholic parish of Saint Benedict’s in the Bronx shall take place the following day on February 28th at 10:30am. Interment at Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York will directly follow the funeral mass.
