GILBERTSVILLE – Payton Allen Stirone, 22, of Gilbertsville, died suddenly on July 23, 2022 from injuries sustained in a car accident.
He was born on September 27, 1999 in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, the son of Christopher and Jennifer (Weiss) Stirone.
Growing up in the New Berlin area, he graduated from the Unadilla Valley Central School class of 2018.
Payton worked locally as a cell tower technician for Protel in Norwich. He often sent pictures to his mother of himself doing stunts on top of cell towers, much to his mother’s dismay.
For recreation, Payton enjoyed sports, including hunting and fishing, golfing with his brothers and friends, and riding four-wheelers. For several years he competed in the demolition derby at the Otsego County Fair and even competed in the derby at the Chenango County Fair once or twice.
Payton had a big heart and could always make you smile. He held a special place in his dogs heart. He was the “glue” who held his family together after his grandmother’s death, always urging his family to come together on special occasions.
Payton is survived by his parents, Christopher (Dawn) Stirone and Jennifer Stirone (Jerome Conroy); brothers, Nick, Chris, Xavier and Nico Stirone; sister, Mia Stirone; half-siblings, Jerika and Joe Conroy; sister-in-law, Abigail “Abbie” Stirone; niece, Rosemarie Stirone; and nephew, Luca Stirone; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.
He was predeceased by his grandmother, Rosemarie Weiss; and his cousin, Angel Vazquez.
A memorial rally for Payton will be held beginning at noon Aug. 20 at the Genegantslet Fire Co., 5229 State Highway 41, Greene. Please visit the Payton Stirone Celebration of Life Facebook page for more details.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to RJ Fahy Funeral Home, 116 N. Broad St., Norwich, to help Payton’s family with the cost of their final expenses.
