Mario Posillico, a former chairman of the family-run engineering contracting firm Posillico, died on Aug. 4.

The cause was complications from Parkinson’s disease, according to Newsday. A resident of Cold Spring Harbor, he was 87.

Posillico was the son of Joseph Posillico, who founded the Farmingdale-based firm in 1946, starting out as a small trucking contractor.

Mario and his brothers Dominic and Joseph Jr. greatly expanded the business, which grew to employ around 700 people, according to the report.

The company has been involved in some major construction projects, including the World Trade Center, Meadowbrook State Parkway, Sunrise Highway and Mitchel Field.

Mario Posillico stepped down as chairman in 2008. He is survived by six children and nine grandchildren.
