Help support the Bonanni Family

For those of you who don't know me, I am Colleen Bonanni's sister and Anthony Bonanni was my brother in law. 

We are devastated by the loss of Anthony. He passed suddenly on December 5th, 2020  leaving behind his wife, Colleen, and his young son, Anthony Junior (AJ).  AJ will turn 1 on New Year's Eve without his father.

Anyone who knew Anthony, knew he had a huge heart. He was kind, generous, and loved his family. He was extremely thoughtful, loyal, and delivered perfectly timed one liners.  Anthony was considered the "fun uncle" to his 9 nephews and nieces. He was the first one on the floor playing with legos, chasing them around the yard, and teaching them about his favorite sport, soccer. Anthony was a simple man who enjoyed staying home with his family and watching movies. 

But what Anthony loved the most was his wife and son. Colleen and Anthony began dating in 2008 and spent the last 13 years building a life together. They were married on June 17, 2016 and simply loved being together. Anthony loved my sister immensely and also loved to bust her chops and tease her any opportunity he got.  Anthony was over the moon to welcome his son, AJ, on December 31, 2019 and was completely devoted to him. Watching Anthony's love for  AJ brought a smile to your face. AJ adored his father and was excited each day when Anthony returned home from work. 

As some of you may know, as a result of the pandemic, Colleen was laid off in July.  Anthony started a new job in November and unfortunately, was not yet eligible for health benefits or life insurance. We are asking for donations to help with the cost of medical and funeral expenses and to also help support AJ with a college fund.  Any donations are greatly appreciated.
