It is with great sadness to report that our friend and colleague Andre Bermudez has passed away. Andre was a rising star who was instrumental in bringing so many revitalization projects to the finish line. Always a true professional, Andre showed up to work with a smile on his face and was eager to take on new projects. He believed in the importance of public service to help others in need. He was the engine behind the Suffolk County Landbank’s many successes and will be impossible to replace.
Andre was also a devoted husband and father, and regretfully leaves behind a wife and two young daughters aged 4 and 7. I ask you to keep his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
