Love Emblem

It is with great sadness that the family of Vincent J. Bonanno announces his passing on Saturday, December 12, 2020 at the age of 52 years. Vincent will be lovingly remembered by his mother Grazia Bonanno, by his sister, Rosemary (Timothy) Stewart, and his brother Joseph (Jeanne) Bonanno. Vincent was predeceased by his father, Joseph J. Bonanno and younger brother, Domenick J. Bonanno.

Vincent attended Regis High School in New York City. He continued his education at Vassar College, graduating in 1990 with a degree in English Literature. Vincent studied law and graduated from Quinnipiac University School of Law in Connecticut. He went on to work at Schulte Roth and Zabel and Quinn Emanuel LLP.

He was not only our wonderful son and big brother, but also a loving uncle to his nieces and nephew.

A private graveside ceremony will be held for family on Friday, December 18, 2020, at St. Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale, Long Island.
