It is with deep sadness that LICA announces the recent passing of two members of our community. Mario Posillico, former Chairman of Posillico, Inc., and past president of our association, on August 4 and Christopher James Hogan, son of James Hogan of LICA member firm Komatsu, who passed away on August 8 and was laid to rest yesterday.

Mario-Posillico.pngMario was former President of J.D. Posillico, Inc. and Chairman of Posillico, Inc. and was instrumental in the significant growth of Posillico, Inc. in the 1960’s and 1970’s. He was a graduate of Lehigh University and served in the U.S. Navy.  After his retirement, Mario continued to be an ambassador to Posillico, Inc. You could always count on Mario to walk through their offices, recognizing every employee by name and always making everyone feel like they were an important part of the Posillico family. He participated in Posillico’s Mentor Program, motivating the next generation of leaders and ensuring the company’s success for years to come. Mario was a proud father, grandfather and great grandfather and will be missed by all. Mario (pictured here with Marc Herbst) was presented with the LICA Legacy Award in 2010 in recognition of his service, dedication and many contributions to both our association and the industry as a whole.

Christopher James Hogan passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 41. Chris lived in Cold Spring Harbor most of his life. As a child, he loved baseball and continued to play through High School. He was also a life-long skier and snowboarder. Most of all, he loved fishing, having grown up on the boats of his grandfather and father. He received a degree in Business Administration from Salisbury University, and thereafter, worked at multiple firms selling construction equipment and products. Christopher is survived by his parents James and Cynthia Hogan (Paterno) of CSH, his brother Michael of Huntington Bay, his sister Marissa of Northport as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery, 1660 NY-25A Cold Spring Harbor, NY 11724.
