John Orlando Leo Tramontine, 81, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY
 
<HR style="COLOR: #dfe1e1; BACKGROUND-COLOR: #dfe1e1" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->John Orlando Leo Tramontine, born to Susan Marie and Orlando Tramontine on September 21st 1932 in Iron Mountain Michigan, passed on from this world Saturday, September 21st 2013, on his 81st Birthday, in his home at St. Andrew's Golf Course in Hastings on Hudson, NY.

He died of natural causes following years of respiratory and pulmonary illness.

John is survived by his wife, Darby Macfarlane-Tramontine; his daughter, Margaret Ann Tramontine; his stepdaughter, Scarlett Macfarlane; and his sister, Susan Tramontine Abrahamson.

He is predeceased by his first wife, Nancy Ann McCabe Tramontine.

John lived a fun, loving, full and undeniably successful life. He graduated from Pacelli Catholic Schools in Austin, Minnesota; earned his bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from Notre Dame University; and his Law Degree from New York University. He served in the United States Marine Corps, and was a senior partner at Fish & Neave LLP Law Firm (later acquired by Ropes & Gray LLP) as a renowned intellectual property litigation attorney, and member of the American College of Trial Lawyers. He also served on the Board of Governors, was a beloved benefactor, and served as Chairman of the legal committee at Saint Andrew's Golf Club during its re-formation with Jack Nicklaus in the 1980's and for many years thereafter. It could be said that a few of John's greatest passions were Notre Dame Football (Go Irish!), the New York Giants, and keeping everyone entertained through his unrivaled repertoire of jokes and games. He was also a man of unique talents. It is of note that John was born into and left this world on the same date, September 21st. John was responsible for contributing to the lives of so many. In honor of his mother, who saved for his education at Notre Dame, he created The Susan Marie Tramontine Scholarship Fund donating scholarships in perpetuity for students from Austin, Minnesota, his family's home, to attend Notre Dame University. He was also a patron to many charitable institutions.

Reception and Visitation will be held at the Fred H. McGrath & Son Funeral Home (20 Cedar Street, Bronxville, NY 10708) on September 28th 2013, between the hours of 5pm and 8pm. For further information, contact the McGrath Funeral Home: (914) 337-6770.

Donations in memory of John should be sent to The Covenant House, NY or the Homeless and Hungry Bowery Mission, NY.

John was greatly appreciative of the support from his many friends, his colleagues, his family, his caregivers, and the medical establishments who all contributed so very much to him during his life and later during his prolonged illness.

John led a life of leadership and camaraderie in all aspects, which may be beautifully encompassed by his own statement: "I did it my way". He certainly did, and always will. We love him and wish him Godspeed.
