Anthony (Tony) Bono

March 24, 1942 — September 1, 2023

Dix Hills, NY

Anthony Bono, a beloved husband, Father of three boys, Grandfather of six, and Great-Grandfather of one, passed away on September 1, 2023. He was born on March 24, 1942, in Manhattan, and raised in Queens NY. Tony's passing leaves behind a void in the lives of his family and friends who cherished him dearly.

Tony started working at an early age in the family Fish Store in the Italian section of Corona Queens, alongside his father and two brothers, Robert and Raymond.  

Deciding as a teenager that the life of a fish monger was not for him, he voluntarily joined the US Navy in 1959 and served in the Vietnam war where he earned a Bronz Star with a bronze “V” for Valor.   During his 35 years of Active and Reserve service in the Navy, Tony achieved the rank “Boatswain’s Mate, Chief Petty Officer”.

Tony spent most of his career as a System Analyst and eventually Director of Data Processing, for Henry Schein in Melville, NY.  His passion for technology and analytical skills made him an indispensable member of the company. Throughout his tenure, Tony consistently demonstrated excellence and creativity in his work. His dedication and expertise were greatly appreciated by both colleagues and clients alike.

It was in 1972 that he met and married Patricia Chiazzese, of Bayside Queens, who raised his children, became his wife of 52 years, and helped him become the man he was.  Tony doted on Pat right up until his death.

Tony is predeceased by his father, Alfonso, and his mother, Fay. Their parental guidance and unwavering support helped shape Tony into the remarkable individual he became. His parents' legacy lives on through the incredible life he led.

Tony Bono will forever be remembered as a compassionate and dedicated professional, a loving family man, and a true friend. The impact he made during his time with us will continue to inspire those who had the privilege of knowing him. As we bid farewell to Tony, let us carry his memory in our hearts and strive to live our lives with the same kindness, resilience, and passion that defined his admirable existence.  May Tony's soul rest in eternal peace.
