Hugh DeMartino, 90, Former Yorktown Heights Resident

YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. -- Hugo Albert DeMartino -- most recently of Ballston Lake and Venice, Forida, but a former resident of Yorktown Heights -- died on Thursday, Feb. 11. He was 90.

When DeMartino was 3, he emigrated from Italy to Yonkers with his parents. The family eventually landed in Hastings.

He became a U.S. citizen and served in the 91st Infantry Division of the U.S. Army during World War II, earning a Purple Heart. DeMartino earned his PhD in clinical psychology at St. John's University. He worked for many years in the Lakeland schools and had a private practice in psychology in Yorktown Heights.

He is survived by his five children, Richard of Ballston Lake, William of Atlanta, Georgia, Steven of Painted Post, Vincent of Winthrop, Massachusetts, and Alisa Estes of Edwards, Colorado; grandchildren Emily, Alison, Patrick, Sarah, Matthew and Laura; and "a vast network of friends made during his service as a clinical and school psychologist" and as a retiree.

DeMartino was predeceased by his wife, Alice, and his parents, Renato and Edna (Fasce) DeMartino.

A celebration of his life will be held at noon on Saturday, Feb. 27, at the St. Peter Armenian Church.
