My dad wants to get into hobby beekeeping.  He lives in Rochester NY.  Are there any local sources of package bees?

Betterbee will be a little better than a 4 hour ride from Rochester.

And, Betterbee gets their packages from the south.   I'm not aware of any local package providers in or around NY.  You probably have a better chance of finding a local nuc provider,  but it might be a challenge.

I've had good luck the last two years having packages delivered through the postal service from Rossman Apiaries.  Order soon for the earliest delivery.
