Obituary of Gary Halperin

Gary Halperin, a well-known businessman from Monticello, NY, passed away peacefully with his loving wife, Chris, by his side on March 20, 2019. He was 73. He was born in Manhattan on January 12, 1946 to Dave Halperin & Caroline Spellman Halperin and grew up in Roslyn, NY with his loving parents and sister, Joan.

 

After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree from Long Island University and a Master’s degree from NYU, Gary went on to coach college varsity basketball. This was a dream come true, as Gary was an avid ball player and fan of basketball all through his life.  After his days of coaching, Gary went on to become a successful entrepreneur and had his first two children, Shaye and Brett. In 1980, Gary met the love of his life when Chris walked into his backyard on Swinging Bridge Lake. That day he gained a daughter, Jaed, a lifetime with his Aussie wife, and his fourth child, Kylie. From there Gary spent the remaining years of his life in Monticello NY, devoted to his family.

 

A special thank you to Mary Rundle and Rebecca Kent, for taking such good care of Gary over the last year and a half. And to the nurses, aides and staff at the Care Center at Sunset Lake, who went above and beyond to care for him with the utmost respect, love and support over the last six months. No words can describe our appreciation for these individuals.

 

In addition to his wife, Chris, at home, Gary is survived by his son: Brett Halperin of Long Island, NY; 3 daughters: Shaye Puntillilo (Frank) of Long Island, NY, Jaed Altman (Josh) of Monticello, NY and Kylie Hallett-Halperin (Martin) of NY, NY; his mother in-law: Betty Nana” Smith; a sister: Joan Halperin (Jeffrey); a sister in-law: Margie (Fraser) Green; 5 grandchildren: Max, Sage, Olivia, Chloe and Harper; a nephew: Peter Schwartz (Kathy); a niece: Cally Kallenberg; great nieces: Samara and Aviya; and a great nephew: Nate.
