Devin John (“DJ”) Vandermark

Rochester, NY passed away on June 17, 2022 at age 24

Devin was born February 13, 1998, in Rochester, NY to David and Marie K. (White) Vandermark.

He graduated from Arcadia High School, class of 2017, in Greece, NY.  He attended Double H Ranch in Lake Luzerne, NY, every summer from 2004-2019.  This was his favorite time of year and favorite place in the world to be and to be himself.  He was a valued employee at Best Buy stores in Greece, Saratoga Springs and Henrietta, NY.

Devin enjoyed many things.  He loved his animals.  He was a NY Yankees fan and a New England Patriots super fan.  He was an electronic guru, a computer builder extraordinaire and was at his happiest playing his guitar, listening to his favorite bands, Green Day and All Time Low, or especially when riding the open road on his motorcycle. He truly enjoyed helping others and making an impact on their lives whether at work or through his friendships.   

He is predeceased by his Great Nana, Sarah White.

He is survived by his Great Grandmothers, Dolores Schnacky and Beverly Whitney; Grandparents, Greg "Papa" and Mary White "Nana", Donna Ferrell "Nana" and Luke (Peter) Mahoney; parents David Vandermark and Marie Vandermark (Jeremy Belair); Aunts and Uncles Sarah, Lauren and Katie, Bobbi, Brian, Kim; Siblings Brenden, Caitlyn; Step siblings Brendon, Ava and Liam, Syrene, Cheyenne; and countless cousins and extended family members.

    You were always so happy and positive. I’ll never forget the day I gave you the set of colored pencils that were all the values of gray. You knew I understood…There won’t be any gray in Heaven- only colors, beautiful colors. And our mutual love for Green Day- keep on rocking., Devin. You will be missed. RIP

    It was a pleasure to know you and watch you grow. My only regret is moving away and you and my son took different paths. You were a kind and gentle soul and I know you are no longer in pain. Rest easy and one day we will meet again.

    Devin and I played football together for the Greece Cardinals. He might have been the smallest player on the team, but he always showed up and played his heart out. I’ll never forget his enthusiasm for the game or the excitement he experienced when he made a play against someone bigger. Rest in Peace, Devin.

    I will never forget the times I spent with Devin at Double H. He was a bright light whom everyone flocked to. He always had a kind word and a smile for everyone and anyone. He always put others before himself. He was truly a special person whom I loved like a brother. He knew how to encourage others in the best of ways. I’ll never forget our many chats. My heart and my love are with you all as you grieve. Devin’s light may have been dimmed, but it will never be extinguished—it’ll be carried in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. I’m blessed and honored to be one of those people.

    Another thing I have really noticed is that for many people, less-than-perfect credit is the consequence of circumstances past their control. Such as they may be really saddled with illness so that they have large bills going to collections. It would be due to a work loss or even the inability to do the job. Sometimes divorce proceedings can truly send the financial circumstances in the wrong direction. Thanks for sharing your ideas on this web site.
