Daniel Robert Bartholomew

Age 70, of Watkins Glen, NY, passed away on December 10, 2019 after a long illness.
He was born in Montour Falls, NY, on August 31, 1949, the son of the late Daniel A. and Ann M. Bartolomeo. He graduated from Watkins Glen High School in 1967 and received his Bachelor’s of Electrical Engineering degree from Cornell University in 1971.

After graduation, Dan worked for Cornell Information Technology from 1971 until his retirement in 2008, initially supporting large IBM mainframes and later supporting Windows personal computers. Dan enjoyed taking annual vacations to Hawaii and Cancun with family, gardening, movies, scuba diving, music concerts, and continued to do computer programming during his retirement.

Dan is survived by his sister, Nancy (Jack) Culligan of Watkins Glen, NY, nephew Darrin (Tina) Culligan of Burdett, NY, niece Danna (Culligan) Watson and great-nephews Aaron Culligan, Dylan Watson and Alex Watson of Hagerstown, MD, and his long-time friend Elaine LaRocque of Ithaca, NY. He was predeceased by great-nephew Joshua Culligan. Dan enjoyed maintaining contact over the years with friends that had moved away.

Dan wanted to express his thanks to the Cayuga Medical Center Radiation/Oncology departments, and the Cayuga Hematology Oncology Associates. Special thanks are given to Dr. Charles Garbo and all of the CHOA Chemo Suite nurses, staff, and volunteers for their dedicated care and treatment during his illness.

A private family service will be held at a later time and burial will be at St. Mary's cemetery next to his parents and grandparents. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Schuyler County Volunteer Ambulance Association, PO Box 2, Watkins Glen, NY 14891, or becoming a blood donor through the American Red Cross.

You may express condolences to the family online at Arrangements entrusted to Royce-Chedzoy Funeral Home, Watkins Glen.

Dan was such a vibrant soul that I could hardly believe the news of his passing.

I met Dan almost four years ago when his sister Nancy decided to adopt Thunder, the family’s beloved Doberman Pinscher, (who is the son of one of my dogs and the brother of another.) Nancy told me that Dan enjoyed walking and playing with Thunder. I also know Dan enjoyed the conformation dog shows which he attended to show Thunder. It brings a smile to remember how much joy Thunder brought to Dan’s life (particularly after the family made it through Thunder’s terrible twos!)

My most favorite personal memories of Dan are of his brilliant and genuine smile and the sparkle in his eyes, which to me suggested an insatiable interest in experiencing all the precious moments life had to offer.

May all the kindness Dan so generously bestowed upon others be abundantly returned to him in the after-life. Blessings of peace to Nancy and her family as they navigate the void left by such a dear soul…

So sorry to hear of your loss. Dan was a great co-worker for all my years at Cornell, a friend and a great man. Always there to help when I had a problem.

I am so sad to hear of Dan's passing. I worked with him at CIT for over 30 years. He was such a caring person and would help with any computer problems I had. He was a true friend.

I hired Dan to work in our Cornell computer labs when he was in college. Needless to say he was outstanding and we hire him full time when he graduated from Cornell. He and I became great friends and we worked together for over 30 years. He would always go out of his way to help students and staff with their computer problems. I would be number one on his help list. My wife and I got to enjoy a vacation trip to Hawaii with Dan and fellow Cornell staff members. The one thing I learned was when Dan was laying in the sun you better leave him alone. He loved his sun. When we had coffee at work we would always talk about our families and I can tell you he loved each one of you. I also want to thank Elaine for always being there for him. Rest in peace Dan you certainly deserve it.

I lost my best friend to cancer this week. We were emailing back and forth on Monday and he passed on Tuesday.

I’ve known Dan Bartholemew all my life. Our parents were friends and so were we. He was the strongest person I've ever known but this terrible disease that gives you a glimmer of hope, got the best of him and hit him hard.

He was the best man at my wedding, the guy I confided with and the one person I always saw when I came to town.

Dan was never upset with anyone, was always funny and was the smartest guy in the room. I looked up to him and always knew he had my back. Dan loved his sixties music, cars and electronics, going on vacation and was the driving force of the personal computer department at Cornell University, personally helping thousands of students over the years.

I’m told life is about loss and how you deal with it. I’m having a tough time with this one, but I think Dan would want me to go out and have some fun.
