ADAMS CENTER, NY —  The funeral Mass for Matthew F. Bondellio, Sr. will be at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, July 26, 2022, at Saint Anthony’s Church, Father John Demo officiating. Burial will be at a future date. Calling hours will be 4 to 7 p.m. Monday, July 25, 2022, at Reed & Benoit Funeral Home.

Matthew passed away Saturday, July 16, 2022. He was 55 years old.

Born Sept. 10, 1966, in Watertown, a son to John and Ruth (Massey) Bondellio, he was educated locally and graduated with the Watertown High School class of 1985. Following graduation, he received an associates degree from Delhi University.

Matt, at his core, was a self-starter. Through determination and persistence, he built an empire as the president of North Country Paving. He often referred to the shade of his fleet of trucks as “Bondellio blue” and strived to give his clients his very best.

On April 30, 2022, he married Sandra “Sandy” Daily at Honeyville Baptist Church; a church Matt recently began attending. The couple enjoyed being together and were supposed to go out in his father’s boat Sunday.

Matt enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson and his extensive Mopar car collection. He had many friends and loved to socialize, especially at, what Matt referred to as, “the biggest mancave in Jefferson County.” He will be remembered as a loyal man who, above all else, loved his family.

Besides his wife, Sandy, Matt is survived by his children, Matthew Jr., of Carthage, Michael, of Syracuse; his granddaughter, Raelynn Bondellio of Copenhagen; his daughter in-law, Andrea (Robert) Sherman of Chaumont; his stepmother, Sharon Bondellio; his siblings, John E (Rebecca) Bondellio, Portland, Maine, Thomas Bondellio, Watertown, Gregory (Karen) Bondellio, Barranquilla, Colombia, Linda (Molly) Bondellio, Fayetteville, and Heather Bondellio, Virginia; and his uncles, Frank (Sandra) Bondellio and James Kalk. Also surviving are his nieces and nephews, Aya, Blake, Dante and Jett.

Arrangements are with Reed & Benoit Funeral Home, Inc.
