D'Addetta, DouglasSOUTH GLENS FALLS- Douglas D’Addetta, 60, passed away after a short illness, at Glens Falls Hospital.

Born on March 11, 1958, in Jersey City, New Jersey, he was the son of the late Anthony and Alice (Metzner) D’Addetta.

At the age of 17, he joined the US Army and served as a medic.

He was very active in his church, leading Men’s Ministries, as well as the Royal Rangers. He was the Northeast Sectional Commander of the Royal Rangers. He loved to cook and prepared many meals at his church. He also spent many hours renovating at the Gospel Lighthouse Church.  He was dedicated to the Open-Door mission and had an unwavering love for God. He was always available for the men of the Men’s Ministries, no matter the time or place.  Douglas touched the lives of so many people and will not be forgotten. He was also an avid NY Yankees fan.

Survivors include his wife of 17 years, Kimberly D’Addetta of South Glens Falls; his children, Danielle D’Addetta of New York,  Douglas D’Addetta of New Jersey, Roxanne D’Addetta of Florida, Jade D’Addetta  Deany and her husband Taylor of Florida, Spencer D’Addetta of South Glens Falls; two grandchildren, Cambria D’Addetta, Paxton Deany; his brother, Anthony D’Addetta of New Jersey; his twin brother, Dennis and his wife, Jeanine of New Jersey; his sister, Joann Giarratania and her husband, Richard  of New Jersey; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. He also left behind his best friend and beloved bulldog, Luigi.

It was Doug’s wish that in death, he could help someone else live on, so he generously donated his organs to Donate Life.

A memorial service will be held on Monday, March 19, 2018, at 11 a.m. at the Gospel Lighthouse Assembly of God Church, with Pastor Paul Mead officiating.

A gathering will immediately follow the service and folks are encouraged to bring a covered dish to pass.

    I’m so sad at Doug’s passing. Doug was a very generous man who loved helping people. He organized a group of men to help me move from my apartment to a house in Glens Falls. Even though he was in pain he tackled the job. He will be missed but I know he’s not in pain any more and he’s walking the streets of glory. God bless you his family. He’ll forever be in your hearts. Much love to u all.
