    Today is November 2nd, the Feast of All Souls. I remember you today my dear husband and pray that you are peacefully resting in the loving arms of our Savior. When I visited you at the nursing home I brought to you Holy Communion and we would say the rosary together praying for our daughters and their families. However on this feast day our rosary was for our dearly departed families and friends. So today as I prayed for you I prayed also for them and felt peaceful that you were all in a restful heavenly place.
    May our beloved Savior and His merciful love be felt today for all the departed souls of our loved ones and the souls of those in past generations. Rest well my darling and pray that one day soon we will be together again.

    I remember the first time I met Uncle Bruce was thanksgiving at 10 Henry avenue.

    That Irish guy walked into the house with Aunt Amy…he was cool as a cucumber admits all the Pisano’s in the house!

    Over the years we’d go riding our bikes around Bay View Terrace and stop by to see him and Aunt Amy. He was always laughing and joking around, played those Beatles records and talk about the Navy.

    He taught me how to drive a car, how to repair copper pipes under the house on Beaks Road in Cornwall and gave me a beer or two when I was 17!

    I joined the Navy and life took over. 30 something years later I put on Chief anchors and he would tell me how proud he was.

    Always the consummate sailor testing to gain favor with the Chief! Lol.

    I always loved Uncle Bruce like like my dad. He was an amazing man, funny, patient and above all my favorite sailor.

    He’s literally my last Uncle to pass away and there is a void in my life that cannot be filled.

    Fair winds and following winds BT2 Lennon you will always be in my heart.

    Love you forever

    Johnny

    I want to express my appreciation for all of you who visited this site and lite candles and/or left tributes for Bruce.
    Bruce and I were married on December 11,1971 at a candlelight ceremony at Sacred Heart Church in Newburgh, NY. We lived there, worked and raised our two beautiful daughters until we moved to Sebastian, Fl in 1995 where we lived, bought a home and saw our Mary Kate and Julie grow into beautiful women. We saw them married and celebrated the birth of our beloved grandchildren, Jaden, Bryon and Chloe.
    Bruce converted to the Catholic faith after an epiphany which occurred in the ICU unit just before he was taken into surgery. Although he recovered Bruce’s health was deteriorating and had to be placed into a nursing home as he required 24hr nursing care. Bruce remained in nursing care until be passed in the early morning hours on September 25th at Emory Bennett VA Nursing Home in Daytona,Fl
    He was loved dearly by those who cared for him every day.
    Bruce’s legacy will be cherished. He was a loving and patient man. Always ready to smile and be verbally grateful to anyone who did anything for him. He always made u feel valued. Bruce always had a kind word, a cheerful hello, a good day whether you were a grocery store checkout person, man on the street, neighbors or anyone who crossed his path that day.
    His unselfish and caring nature is what endeared him to anyone who knew him.
    Rest In Peace my love. You will be forever remembered and cherished in the hearts of your family and friends.

    I got to know Bruce when I had the privilege to bring Holly Communion to his room at the Emory L Bennet VA Nursing Home. We shared memorable discussions about our love of God, the books he was reading, our love of country, politics, his faith. I got to watch Amilia and Bruce’s love and devotion to each other. God has blessed me by giving a chance to to get to know such a faithful couple. Amilia, take comfort from all your cherished memories and your family until you and Bruce met again. ✝️ ❤️

    Always upbeat, no matter the circumstances. A man with integrity, a true and kind gentleman. A qualm and quiet man took on our loud and dramatic Italian clan.
    You’ll be missed, Uncle Bruce.
    Have a blast where you are, with limitless cups of coffee and the wind at your back.

    Bruce and I lived on the same block of homes in Newburgh, NY. We didn’t go to the same schools or same churches but he secretly admired me from afar for many years. He finally got up the nerve to ask me out for a pizza and movie, and I said yes. Then he ask me to go to the swimming pool at Anthony Waynes, Storm King and I said yes. Then asked me out to dinner and I said yes. One beautiful Saturday afternoon in July he asked me for a drive to Bear Mountain then to Stewart’s for a root bear float and I said yes. However we never got to Stewarts . He parked his car at the Bear Mountain overlook, turned up the volume on the radio and asked me to dance. He opened the door on the passenger side , helped me out of the car and we danced to Johnnie Mathis “what are you doing the rest of your life “. Then got down on his knees and asked me to marry him and I said yes !
    Bruce was a true romantic and devoted son, loving partner and husband and the best friend anyone could ever have. He loved his children with so much pride and devotion. He loved his country and served America proudly in the Navy for four years.
    Bruce and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary last year and this year we had planned to do more together as a couple but sadly that was not to be.
    I cherish the man I came to know and dearly love. My loss of him has taken a part from me that cannot be replaced. I can fill it with loving our children more and appreciating our life together. I will move forward with my life by being of service to others in memory of him. Always keeping him alive in my thoughts and words throughout the days and years of tomorrow.
    I know he’s with his Savior waiting a little impatiently for me and that one day we’ll be together walking the footsteps of eternity.

    May you forever Rest In Peace, Bruce. Heaven gained an irreplaceable angel. I’m grateful for the amazing lady he helped raise in Julie, my best friend and inspiration. Always in awe of the love he showed for his family. To see Jaden’s smile instantly lit up his face. He loved his family immensely and they the same of him. That speaks volumes in and of itself. He left a lasting legacy and a lifetime of memories they’ll cherish always. God grant them the strength to get through this awful feeling of loss. Thankful to have known this good man. The kindness shown by his roommates and friends was humbling. Proof of the loving, generous and fun loving spirit Bruce was ❤️‍

    I am so very sorry to hear about Bruce's passing. He was a wonderful person, and so very special to me. I'll miss talking with him. He was always there for me and me for him. I loved him like the brother that I never had. He will be forever in my heart, thought and prayers. There will forever be a void in my life. I believe with all my heart that Bruce is in Heaven and without pain, he is with my Dad, his Uncle Bill. His family is in my prayers.
