Stephen "Steve" Anthony Fazzary, 67, of Trumansburg passed away at home Sunday, Sept. 6, 2020.
Steve was described as a quiet comedian, unless of course enjoying any of the many family parties and work events over the years, at which time his out-going personality would emerge. Steve's humor was ever present, and he enjoyed a party no matter if he was attending or throwing it. His greatest accomplishment was starting two businesses where he could combine his love of beer, pizza and music; Northeast Pizza in Ithaca and then The Scale House Brewery in Hector. Employees and customers alike felt like they were at "home," and always enjoyed a great time, especially on open-mic nights, when Steve would get on the drums, which was one of his favorite things to do. He was an enthusiastic entrepreneur, always thinking and planning another great idea. Known for calling and waking his children up, just to bounce some ideas off them, he was always eager to try and never afraid to fail! His entrepreneurial spirit took him to five states and many moves in-between, where he pursued his passion for the family tradition of cheesemaking and later, brewing beer. He loved the adventure the entire way.
Steve enjoyed many years spending time with Jan at the house on Cayuga Lake, talking about sailing, enjoying campfires, and spending time with friends and family. He also adored his only grandson Charlie, happy to see his charm and good looks would be carried on.
Steve was pre-deceased by his mother, Jean Fazzary. He is survived by "my beautiful lake girl" of 25 years, Jan Ruzicka of Trumansburg; his father, James Fazzary (step-mother Marie) of Orange City, Florida; daughter, Jessica Robinson (Obin) of Norfolk, Virginia; son, Lucas Fazzary (Jennifer) and grandson Charlie of Jersey City, New Jersey and sister Suzanne Menio (Edward) and their children, Jade and Chelsea; and many nieces and nephews. Other family include Jan's son and daughter-in-law, Ryan and Allison Moore of Glenville, New York and their daughters, Aliza and Amelia Moore.
Everyone was invited to a graveside service at Holy Cross Cemetery, Route 14, Watkins Glen, Monday, Sept. 14 at 11 a.m. A private funeral service for the family will be held at the Royce-Chedzoy Funeral Home. You may join the service live on Zoom or streamed later, by sending a request to the family at StephenFazzaryFuneral@mail.com.

Beverly Flatt Riley of Odessa passed away peacefully Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020. Born in Medina, New York on March 3, 1933 to G. Arthur and Dorothy (Smith) Flatt, she moved to Odessa in 1938 and spent her life there raising her family. She graduated from Odessa Central School and Alfred Agricultural and Technical Institute majoring in secretarial science. She worked for several area companies before finding her niche at Odessa-Montour Central School, where she spent 25 years as the payroll/personnel clerk before retiring in 1995.
Bev married the love of her life, Donald Riley, in 1953. She spent most of her life at Far View Farms where she was raised and where she raised her family. Her spare time was spent tending to gardens (both flower and vegetable) and a fruit orchard, freezing and canning the bounty. Even in her later years, much to her family's dismay, she could be seen roaming around the grounds planting flowers and pulling weeds. She was a gifted seamstress, who made clothing and did alterations for family and local clientele. She loved to bake pies, a favorite at her church bazaars and Williams Sweet Shop, which she owned and operated with Don in the late 1950s. Her cookies, pies, breads and candy were loved by the community and her family, who still looked forward to returning home to enjoy her baked goods. Bev also enjoyed crafts, creating both artistic and practical items. She crocheted hundreds of scrubbies and knitted dish cloths for the church bazaars. Her faith was very precious to her as she was a 75-year member of the Odessa Catharine United Methodist Church.
The most important thing to Bev was her family. She was a loving mother, teaching her children the same compassion she had for all people, that hard work was a blessing, and faith could help you through the darkest times. She reveled in her children and grandchildren's successes and acutely mourned their losses. She was the ultimate Mom, always putting her children before herself. In her later years when she couldn't travel, she loved watching her children and grandkids grow through her electronic picture frame.
Bev lived a full life, making many friends through her work, church, and social groups. Remembered for her beautiful smile, kind heartedness and giving spirit, she will be missed by those whose lives she touched.
She is survived by her children, Douglas (Vanessa) Riley of Hilton Head, South Carolina, John (Sheila) Riley of Berlin, Connecticut, Donna Riley Roberts of Odessa and Kathleen (Stephen) Smith of Croton-on-Hudson, New York; grandchildren Scott (Katie), Colin (Jenna), Cara, Philip, Brian, Kevin and Jennifer; great-grandchildren Melissa, Quinn and Samantha; Carole Bahns of Horseheads, a special niece whom Bev regarded as another one of her children and many other nieces and nephews.
Beverly was predeceased by her husband, Donald Riley, her grandson, Sean Riley, and her three siblings Donald Flatt, Marjorie Brink and Barbara Flatt.
Services were held Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 2 p.m. at the Odessa-Catharine United Methodist Church, 305 Church St., Odessa. Burial followed in Laurel Hill Cemetery. Relatives and friends were invited to call from 1-2 p.m. Tuesday at the church.
Contributions may be made in Beverly's memory to the Odessa-Catharine United Methodist Church. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Vedder-Scott & Zinger Funeral Home, Montour Falls.

Mr. Scotchmer was a member of Wayne American Legion Meade-Price Post 1208. Terry was a self-motivated "jack of all trades" who enjoyed working with his hands. He liked fishing, but was happiest making people laugh, and sharing time with family and friends.
He will be missed by his three sons, Terry L. (Sarah) Scotchmer Jr. of Bath, James C. (Jill) Scotchmer of Savona and Anthony M. (Amanda) Scotchmer of Palmyra; seven grandchildren, his sister Nancy Campbell of Bath, the mother of his sons Patricia Gunderman Scotchmer, his dear friend Diane Sutton with whom he made his home and several nieces and nephews.
