Born Fe­bru­ary 24, 1947, in Troy, NY, Don is son of the late Do­minick and Mary (Klee) Carofano. He at­tended the SUNY Col­lege of Tech­nol­ogy in Al­fred, NY, fol­lowed by Clark­son Univer­sity in Pots­dam, NY, where he earned a bach­e­lor’s de­gree, and, fi­nally, Union Col­lege in Sch­enec­tady, NY, grad­u­at­ing with a mas­ter’s de­gree in en­gi­neer­ing.

He will be re­mem­bered for his kind and calm dis­po­si­tion, his silly sense of hu­mor and his love for fuzzy cats, ad­ven­tures big and small, and fam­ily above all. A memo­rial mass will be held Satur­day, June 16, at The Acad­emy of the Holy Names Chapel at 10 a.m., fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion at the Student Com­mons at The Acad­emy of the Holy Names; both are lo­cated at 1075 New Scot­land Road, Al­bany, NY, 12208.
