Obituary for Anthony Bonavota

Anthony “Tony” Bonavota of Plainfield, IL was 71 years old when he suddenly passed away on Tuesday, August 6th, 2019. Born in Sant’Onofrio, Calabria, Italy on February 20th, 1948 to his late parents Caterina and Giuseppe Bonavota, who migrated to Toronto, Canada before moving to the Chicago area.

Tony was the lover of pasta, Lays Chips, and Italian salami. He enjoyed cooking and could definitely be heard at any gathering. Always the life of the party, he liked to rollerblade, play pool, and loved watching sports, including horse racing. He was nicknamed the “Mayor” of any place he lived because everyone knew who he was. He was also not afraid to tell you that he was a Democrat, and why you should be one too.

Tony is survived by his children; Cathy (Tommy) Pusch, Joseph Bonavota, Priscilla (James) O’Sullivan, and Alexis Bonavota. His greatest loves were his grandchildren. He was “Nonno” to Kailee (O’Sullivan), Chloe (Pusch), Rylan (O’Sullivan), and Kyle (Pusch). He is also remembered by his sisters, Maria (Nicola) Sinopoli and Anna (the late Giuseppe) Riga and many nephews, nieces, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his sister, Caterina (the late Ralph) Barbuto.
