Both Hoppy and Anita will be greatly missed by all the Buonos of Gaston Avenue. Hoppy and his family lived across the street from us and he was always a good friend and wonderful neighbor to us all. And when he married Anita, we all got to know and love her as well. They will be remembered as a loving couple who always went to great lengths to be helpful and kind in all that they did. My sisters and I each had our own "visits" with Hoppy and Anita before they left this earth which were moments of great grace and privilege. And my mother and Anita often spoke to each other by phone recently and commiserated about their mutual health challenges. May they rest in peace together...and Hoppy, hoping you get to join our Dad, Frank,and also your long-time friend and fan, on that big golf course in the sky!
