Michael Alexander (Alex) Volpe died unexpectedly on June 7, 2015. He was the son of Julie Rae Volpe and Mark E. DeLill. Alex was a senior expected to graduate from Waverly High School. He was accepted and enrolled at Morrisville State College in the Renewable Energy Program, and had accepted the invitation to be a member of the Morrisville Mustang Football “family”.
Alex was a gregarious, friendly and fun loving young man whose entrance into a room rarely went unnoticed. He had tremendous love for his family and was fiercely loyal to his friends, teammates and loved ones. Alex loved all athletics and participated in basketball, baseball, and football – even coaching the Powder Puff Squad. Football was his passion and Jason Miller, his coach, played an important role in Alex’s life as a teacher, mentor and role model.
Alex will be remembered as a compassionate, fun-loving, happy young man and a “stand-up guy”. He was a loving son, brother, cousin, grandson, great-grandson, nephew and friend.
Alex was predeceased by his uncles Alex Wayne Volpe and Robert William DeLill, grandmother Clarabelle Palmer DeLill, and great grandparents Ray and Edith Robbins and Gerald Volpe.
