HOPEWELL JUNCTION – Ray Ialonardi, 76, a resident of Hopewell Junction since 1996 and a previous resident of Yonkers, died on June 8, 2020.

Born in the Bronx on August 22, 1943, Ray was the son of the late Mary DeLuca. Ray was employed as Director of Construction for Diamond Properties in Valhalla until his retirement in 2014.

On April 29, 1961, he married the love of his life, Marianne (Harney) Ialonardi. Ray lived his life to the fullest on his own terms. He enjoyed adventure, including travel, parasailing, hot air ballooning, and flying a classic combat fighter plane. He was an amazing dad who sacrificed much to provide for his family and always told his daughters that being a girl would not stop them from being anything that they wanted to be. He was also fortunate to have sons-in-law that he considered sons. He was a fiercely loyal friend, husband, parent and grandparent. He loved good food, a good bottle of wine and a good book. He loved his time in Arizona and found peace and solace in the desert. Nothing gave him more joy than his grandchildren, Alexa Rae and Jared.

Ray is survived by his wife, Marianne, his daughters Dina Finelli and Christine Cassetta; his son-in-law, Anthony Cassetta; his grandchildren, Alexa Rae and Jared; his siblings; numerous nieces and nephews; his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law; and life-long friends and colleagues. In addition to his parents, he was also predeceased by his son-in-law, Richard Finelli, on November 24, 2019.

The family will hold a private burial.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, Utah or Wounded Warrior Project. Please share stories, thoughts, condolences and memories at Ray’s Book of Memories at

It may seem a bit strange that I'm posting this, because Ray and I didn't know each other. I learned about him because I'm hoping to extend the happiness he and his wife experienced in Arizona as the next steward of his beautiful home here. If someone else is chosen for their home, I wish them much happiness. Then I realized that my husband and I share another deep connection with your family. A year ago on July 14 my sweet mother Marie left this world, and there's a hole in my heart that is gradually being filled by the love of others and by appreciating and loving others more than ever before. I'm not superstitious, but I do read symbolism into connections. Marianne, your name makes me smile at the beauty of Mom's name, which she gave to me and my sisters with our middle name Marie. The street your AZ home is on resembles the street of a home we previously loved and brought back to life on Fern Road in Gilman, MN. I sincerely don't want to intrude, but my deepest condolences to family and friends on the loss of a man who I wish I had known. - Marie Charlson

May God bless you always, every day.
Suzanne Riley

I've had the privilege and honor of having both a business and personal relationship with Ray for more than 40 years . As it says in his obituary "he is fiercely loyal" . From Ray's own business through his years at DP , he's always been a gentleman and interested in doing "the right thing" . I know from speaking to him how proud he was of his family and his love and adoration for his grandchildren . May he rest peacefully. Frank Abajian (Central Plg Spec. formerly Lexington Plg Supply)

Tough guy exterior with a heart of gold! Ray was always there to lend a helping hand. Loved by all that came in contact with him. He is surely missed by me and my colleagues at DP. Rest easy my friend.

Ray was always engaged in energetic work in both his professional and personal life.
He was a devoted son and husband, a loving father and grandpa.
And, he was a great story teller.
You will be missed, Ray. RIP
