Obituary of Sebastian Bentivegna
February 13, 2018 in the presence of family and friends. He was born in New York City, he moved to Rochester as a child. He graduated from Madison High School in 1955, attended The University of Buffalo, St. John Fisher College, and The New York College of Podiatric Medicine. He practiced Podiatry in Rochester for almost 30 years, before moving to Skaneateles, where he practiced for another 7 years and became an integral part of the community.
He is survived by Carol, his loving wife of 56 years, his children and their spouses: David (Annik); Stephen (Jeanne); Jeffrey (Rebecca); and Paula (Timothy Sullivan); grandchildren Stephen (Valerie), Valerie, Kristen, Anna, Wade, Janelle, Joshua, Brooke, Jack, Sebastian, and Jami; and great-grandchildren Sonny and Gabriella. He is preceded in death by his siblings Michelina, Salvatore, and Joe William.
To his family he was King, to his friends – an Ace. To all, he was larger than life itself, and blessed so many with his love, wisdom, and joy. A great man was lost, and he will be truly missed. We take comfort in the fact that he will never be forgotten, and that his was a beautiful life fully lived.t
