Christopher passed away on August 1, 2019 at home. He was born on July 12, 1967 in Beacon, New York and was the son of John K. and the late Margaret (Peggy) Cataldo.
Chris is survived by his sisters Melissa Cataldo and Susan Cataldo who adored him, as well as his Aunt and Uncle Catherine and Joseph Lotsko, and Aunt Ann Marie Cataldo, cousins Peter Cataldo, Paul Cataldo, Jessica Lacalamita, David Cataldo, and Jason Cataldo. He was predeceased by his cousin James Burke.
He graduated from Beacon High School, attended Dutchess Community College and then re-located to Manhattan to work as a bartender in upscale restaurants such as Match Uptown and L'Artisanal, which he both loved and was absolutely great at. He was the long-time bartender at well-known restaurant Sushi Samba before moving back to his hometown of Beacon. In recent years he could be found entertaining from behind the bar at the restaurant at the Beacon Hotel.
Even as a boy, Chris was a sweet and gentle soul, quickly feeling the pain of others, healing loved ones and strangers and acquaintances with laughter and outrageous fun. He was highly intelligent, and his sly, lightning-fast humor was elevated to a higher level, perfectly tailored to his audience, always leaving us in tears laughing. The number of messages on his Facebook page are a testament to his generosity, his impact, and the extraordinary power of his incredible spirit. Chris was a prince. And always will be.
In lieu of flowers, Chris would want you to do an unsolicited act of kindness for someone less fortunate in his name.
Please join the family to celebrate the life of our adored Chris.
