Bronx, NY

Rosario Candela was born on March 11th, 1961 in the town of Torretta, Palermo, Sicilia. He was the son of Giuseppe and Vincenza Candela. Rosario was an immigrant that helped to change the landscape of Manhattan and greater New York City. He was the epitome of the American dream and why New York City flourishes. Rosario was a beloved son, husband, brother, uncle, God-father, and friend. Some human beings leave an indelible mark upon our lives and purpose. Rosario was one of those people who humbly impacted all the lives around him. Rosario was a free spirit who loved hunting, his dogs, his New Jersey roots, and worked immensely hard without complaint. Very few people can obtain the title of builder but that was Rosario; he was a builder who was gifted in envisioning and producing. Rosario was known for his many projects and building for his plants, his house, the dogs, and he loved to help his family. He leaves behind his beloved Wife Michelina Falciano whom he dedicated his love to for 34 years. He also leaves behind his brothers and sister, Nicolo, Calogero, Salvatore, Mario, Antonio, and Anna. He was a beloved brother-in-law to Nunzio Falciano and Lawrence Petersen. He was also the proud God-Father to Vincenzo, Joseph, Joey, and Steve. Rosario belonged to a village of family that loved him and he loved them in return; he is the uncle to 14 nieces and nephews as well as a grand-uncle to 3 nieces and nephews. Rosario built more than just infrastructure, he built a life for himself and was surrounded by love. Whenever you get sad or miss the life of Rosario, just look up to the sky or around you. The product of his hands and work can be seen throughout the skyline of New York City and the family he leaves behind. The humble, humorous, hard-working, builder has left his mark on this world in ways others have not.

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.
