Obituary for David Michael Kuzio

David Michael Kuzio, 32, of Easton, Maryland, passed away on Friday, February 2, 2024, due to an automobile accident in Easton. Born on March 19, 1991, in Bellefonte, was the beloved son of William and Barbara (Agnone) Kuzio, who are both surviving at home in Bellefonte.

David was a 2009 graduate of Bellefonte Area High School. Since graduation, he studied diligently and became a professional culinary chef extraordinaire and enjoyed developing new cuisines. Over the recent years, he made his way to Maryland to pursue his love of culinary arts. He was currently employed with the BluePoint Hospitality Group in Easton. Working in Easton gave him the freedom to be creative and explore numerous opportunities to showcase his work to culinary icons. One of the highlights of his time there was getting to work alongside his friend and head chef, David Kneller; they were able to serve a meal to the world-renowned chef, Jose Andres, who left extremely impressed with not only the menu that they created, but also the quality of the meal that they presented to Chef Andres.

He leaves behind his loving parents, William “Bill” and Barbara Kuzio, many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Also surviving is his longtime girlfriend, Melissa Interdonota, also of Easton, Maryland.

David was an avid lover of the outdoors. He enjoyed sports, kayaking, snowboarding, and target shooting. Over the years he was fortunate enough to forge many friendships and made sure to stay connected with his friends, celebrating their wins in life as they did for him. In 2015, he took his motorcycle on an off-road trip over the TransAmerican Trail with his best friend Dylan. He loved his family and cousins, and enjoyed spending time with them when he was able. David was a ball of energy – always positive and excited to be around others. He brought infinite light and love for life into any room and was well beyond his time.
