Pasquale J. Cardinale “PJ”
Big Flats, NY
Passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at his home at the age of 47, after a long and brave battle with leukemia. PJ was born March 27, 1972 to Pasquale and Carol Cardinale in Elmira NY. He graduated from Elmira Free Academy in 1990. Following high school, he enlisted in the United States Air Force where he proudly served from 1990-1997. He then went on to graduate from Elmira College in 2002, and attained his CPA license in 2008. PJ was the true meaning of a family man. He married his wife Jodi on June 10, 2006 and not a day went by that he didn’t make sure she knew how much he loved her. He was a very proud Dad of 2 boys, Dominic age 12 and Mario age 10, and always said that his boys were his greatest accomplishment. PJ’s greatest joy was time spent with his wife and boys, as a friend, coach and teacher. He was an assistant coach for their sports teams as they grew through the years. He loved vacationing with his family. PJ also loved finding new jokes to make his boys laugh and often had a joke of the day. He had a passion for cooking and loved preparing good food for others as much as he enjoyed a good meal himself. He loved teaching the boys new things, so you would often find the boys alongside him cooking in the kitchen or wood working in his workshop. He will also be missed greatly by his two four-legged companions, CeCe and Maisy, who never left his side. In addition to his wife and children, PJ is survived by his mother Carol Plate, brothers Jeff (Sue), Joe and Tony (Gloria) Cardinale, Tim and Mark Phillo, and one sister Pamela Woolman. His nephews Jacob, Caleb, Mason and Chad Cardinale and Nick Woolman and nieces Gina Woolman and Chloe Cardinale; in-laws, Micky Burke, Ron Burke (Carol McGill), Adam (Jodi) Burke and nephews, Ben and Drew Burke; grandmother, Betty Shaw; many aunts, uncles, and too many friends to count. The family will welcome relatives and friends to Sullivan’s Funeral Home, 365 E. Franklin St. at Rt. 13, Horseheads, NY on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 4-8 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Patrick’s Church, Elmira, NY on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 10 AM. PJ will be laid to rest at Bath National Cemetery at the convenience of the family. Condolences and words of comfort may be expressed in PJ’s Book of Memories at
PJ never let a day go by that he didn’t try to make someone smile. To remember PJ simply be an extension of his kindness, pay it forward, be kind, make someone smile today and every day.

Such a good person, I've never once in the 35+ years that I've known PJ,did I hear 1 even close to being bad about him,we've lost contact over the years,and when I heard he became ill,i always asked through mutual friends how he was doing,and I even said a couple prayers for him,I dont do much praying, but if anyone deserved it, Pj was the one I was gonna pray for,I'm so sorry for the grief the family is dealing with,..RIP Pj,I'll always remember that great smile....

Our family met yours through Big Flats Little League baseball & Big Flats Elementary. Every time we’d see PJ, he would have that big, genuine smile on his face. You could see the love he had for his boys in that same smile. He will be missed. Sending loving thoughts your way. ~The Loomis Family
