Marc Mace Malorzo passed away on Saturday, November 12th, 2022 at the age of 58. Marc, the third of six children, was born to Gerald and Sandra (Hildreth) Malorzo, in New Hartford, NY on December 11th, 1963. Marc was preceded in death by his mother and father, Gerald and Sandra, and is survived by his loving wife of 28 years, Wendy Malorzo, daughter Gianna Malorzo, brothers Christopher (& Laura), Tory (& Stephanie), and Todd Malorzo, sisters Desiree Bauerkemper Malorzo, and Leda Messineo and several nieces and nephews.
Marc enjoyed playing many sports at school, including Little League baseball, which his dad coached for several years, and hockey. Marc was known as ‘Spy’ and everyone went to Thomas Street in Rome to hang out together, play games, build snow forts, and later organizing parties. After he graduated from high school, he worked in the construction industry as a carpenter. He loved to cook and travel, as well as yardwork, fishing, camping and winter sports. He also enjoyed working on cars and motors.
Marc and Wendy met in Atlanta, GA, then married and moved to England for 5 years, where they still have many friends, and made several memorable trips to France with family. They moved back to Rochester, NY and had their miracle daughter, Gianna Mae. Marc was a dedicated husband and father. Wendy fondly remembers Marc playing dress-up or tea party with Gianna. He also built her a custom dollhouse and an extravagant backyard playhouse.
Marc was always helping people, whether it be a homeless person, or someone who had broken down in their car. He loved visiting his parents and his British parents-in-law, and he always brought a toolbox and asked how he could help with home repairs. His outpouring of caring and love is already deeply missed and our hearts are heavy today as we grieve his loss.
