Bruce F. Lupone, 78, of Fayetteville, died peacefully on May 14, 2020. Born in Syracuse, Bruce graduated from Eastwood High School. He worked as a civil engineer for the NY State Department of Transportation for 34 years.

Bruce loved to fish and make objects out of wood while he was enjoying his retirement and spending his winters in Pine Island, Florida. He was a Jimmy Buffet fan and often used quotes from his songs in conversations, such as, “if your phone doesn’t ring it’s me”. He attended Holy Cross Church in DeWitt.

He was a kind and gentle man who everybody loved. His love for dogs was well known, as he was often seen talking and playing with those he came in contact with. A special bond existed with his neighbor’s dog named Petey for many years; they absolutely loved each other. He will be remembered as a great husband, loving father and a friend to all.

He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Janette; daughter, Lisa Laquidari (Lupone); brothers, Frederick Lupone and David Lupone; sister, Jean Vella; several nieces, nephews and Godchildren. He was predeceased by his parents, Frederick & Lucille Lupone; and sister, Lucy Salatte in 2016.

Sincere sympathy for the passing of Bruce. Even though we haven't been in touch over the years, we are well aware of the kind and generous person Bruce was. Really wish we could of visited you both in Saint James City over the years. Take care of yourself.

Bruce was such a special man. As Petey's mom I know the unbreakable bond they had. I will never forget the times I came home to Bruce laying on the ground on one side of our fence with Petey in the yard on the other side. Petey's days were not complete without seeing Bruce, when you were in Florida he would mope around the house. I am certain that Petey was waiting for Bruce and they are together again enjoying each other. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Bruce was one of the kindest and genuine man I have had the fortune to have known... RIP my friend.. love, Debbie Patla Cheesman

I don’t know where to begin when describing my Uncle Bruce. His warmth was palpable, his smile ever-ready, his raspy laugh easily dispensable. Whether it was on the golf course or just sitting in the garage on lawn chairs, I valued every minute I got to spend with my uncle. Our talks were breezy because Bruce genuinely took interest in you and what you were doing in life (whether I was in college choosing a major or a 9 year old who wanted to show him my baseball cards). Bruce wasn’t just my uncle, he was also my godfather and I was always proud to tell people that because I thought he was so awesome. He was a Parrothead with a little ponytail and as a little kid I thought there was nothing cooler than that. Now as an adult, I’m certain nothing is. I saw Uncle Bruce for the last time at a Christmas. He got to meet my son for the first time. He got him to smile and laugh, just like he always did for me. To me, he’s not gone, he’s just moved on. He’ll always live in my heart, as a big part of me and the man I’ve become. I love you, Uncle Bruce.
