Obituary of Stanley P Bruno


Babione Funeral Home

Stanley Bruno was born in the Bronx, New York on the 5th of June 1945 to his proud parents Raymond and Lena. He had one sibling Lucille. The two shared a love for family and were very close. They lived in the same home until Stanley married. Lucille had three girls after her marriage and he spent 10 beautiful years under the same roof, where he was fortunate enough to watch his nieces grow. He enlisted in the navy to serve the country he loved so much and is a Vietnam veteran. Stanley served three years before coming home and obtaining a degree at Mercy College. He worked on Wall Street as a Commodity Trader, at Goodbody & Company, where he met his future wife JoAnn. The pair knew each other from many years prior. They traveled in the same circles and spent time in the same neighborhood schoolyard as kids. They had an immediate connection upon this destined reuniting. Stanley and Jo Ann were married and created a beautiful life together during their 53 years of marriage. They lived in a home with her family, and had two daughters Claudine and Nancy, prior to purchasing a home in Lake Ronkonkoma, NY. There they resided next to her parents Joe and Beatrice and his sister-in-law Nancy. Stanley changed careers and spent the next 25 years working for the New York City Transit System. He took pride in everything he did. He started as a welder and worked his way all the way up to Superintendent. At one point, he was a chauffeur for the very same position that he had obtained prior to retirement. He instilled this pride in his children. Stanley always taught them to be whatever they wanted but to be the very best that they could be at it. They have carried this philosophy with them as adults and have a keen sense of the importance of family values and pride in all that they do. Upon retirement Stanley, Joann and their girls moved to Boca Raton, Fl. He lived here for the remaining years of his life and built a home with love and sacred memories. It is in Boca that his three grandchildren were born and raised. Cole, Nina and Christian loved him dearly and shared so many beautiful memories with him. He wasn’t just a grandfather but a man that taught them the value in all that is important in this life and the legacy which you leave behind. He and JoAnn purchased a vacation home in Lady Lake, Fl. where they enjoyed the simple pleasures of Lake Views and rolling hills with friends and family. They always enjoyed traveling. He enjoyed cars, photography, and cooking for his family. The legacy that Stanley left behind is that love and nobility. Stanley remained strong, through a brutal battle with his health and showed nothing but strength and fortitude, right until his final moments surrounded by his adoring family. Stanley passed peacefully, after receiving the anointing of the sick, on March 13, 2023, at 12:50 AM. There will be a viewing for him on March 16th from 4:00-8:00 PM at Babione Funeral Home, followed by a mass at St. Joan of Arc Church on March 17, 2023, at 11:00 AM, before he is laid to rest at the Boca Raton Mausoleum. His family will forever treasure the love and light that he has given him in this life. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Bruno family.
