New Paltz Man Is Heart Victim
Americo Stephen Tenedini, 35, of New Paltz died of a heart condition Sunday night while working under a floor with an electric drill at Mossy Brook House, which is operated by his father, Frank Tenedini in the High Falls area.
It was first thought, authorities said, that Tenedini might have died of an electric shock, but an autopsy revealed death was due to the heart ailment.
Sgt. Arthur Reilly of the state police, and Coroner Michael Galietta, who investigated, said a sewer line in the boarding house had become plugged, and Tenedini went under the floor with the drill between 6 and 7 p.m. to loosen the stoppage.
Coroner Galietta said a mark on his body indicated he had been burned, or possibly shocked due to the dampness under the floor near the sewer line, but, if so, this was not the direct cause of death.
The cause of death was described as a "severe heart condition." Authorities said he was dead on arrival of Dr. Anthony Tocco, of Stone Ridge, at the house.
An employee of the engineering department, of IBM, Poughkeepsie, Tenedini, is survived by his wife, Livia Zandonella Tenedini, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Tenedini two sons Richard and Kenneth and a sister Mrs. Rocco Castoro.
Funeral arrangements were made by the George J. Moylan Funeral Home Rosendale.
