GENESEO, N.Y., Aug. 17, 2023 – Livingston County joins with the Mount Morris community in paying tribute to the late Charles DiPasquale, who passed away earlier this week at the age of 80.
DiPasquale was a long-time member of the Livingston County Board of Supervisors where he served as Town Supervisor of Mount Morris from 2006-2022. He was a former Chairman of the County's Public Safety and Public Services Committees and was a reliable, steady, warm and professional presence at county meetings.
"Chuck was a kind man. He was a veteran, a police chief, a member of the fire department, a teacher and a town supervisor,” said David L. LeFeber, Chair of the Livingston County Board of Supervisors.” He was all about public service and community, especially Mount Morris, his beloved home. We are proud to recognize his contributions to Livingston County government and we join countless others in expressing our deepest sympathies to his wife, Mary, and his children."
A tireless advocate for others, DiPasquale served four years in the United States Army before returning home and joining the Mount Morris Police Department. He was promoted to Chief in 1971 and helped protect and serve the community for over 30 years. DiPasquale would later go on to serve as President of the New York State Chief of Police Association for many years. He was also a member of the Mount Morris Fire Department for over 50 years and was named Firefighter of the Year in 1976.
DiPasquale was heavily invested in the importance of education as well after teaching criminal justice at the Charles G. May Center in Mount Morris before becoming President of the Mount Morris Central Board of Education.
“Chuck’s impact on the Mount Morris Community and Livingston County cannot be overstated,” added Ian M. Coyle, Livingston County Administrator. “His dedication and commitment to improving the lives of those around him was exemplary. Chuck always thought of others first. He will be missed.”
