Uncle Bard, My memories will always be of you teaching the boys and I how to fish, how to properly dive through the waves in the ocean, and just making us laugh on end as young kids. I will miss you Uncle Bard. I am so sad that you are gone, but I hope you are at true peace and happy to be reunited with grandma and grandpa❤️. All my love, Danielle

I met Bart in breezy point through John Kelly while in high school at LaSalle military Academy. There are so many great memories it would take a book to size of the Yellow Pages to write down which makes it difficult to pick one and share it. Let me pick one that probably no one ever heard before. My family left New York in 1986 to pursue a career with Meineke muffler franchises. Every year Meineke would give out franchise awards on board Royal Caribbean cruise line. I asked Bart if he would mind the shop for 10 days while my parents and I went on the cruise. He’s a person I trusted and I knew I could depend on him. Well, I guess I didn’t give him enough instructions before leaving. That week Bart proceeded to sell every customer a $19.95 muffler whether it was a Volkswagen or a BMW. The good news is the shop was still standing when we got back, but we may not have done as well profit wise as we had liked to. Bart was always someone I could call no matter what the situation. Thank you for always being there brother. What I would say to Bart is thank you for being my best friend and thank you for being you and sharing life with me. I considered Bart to be extremely intelligent. When I was in high school i learn about the new era of home computers. Bart was the one who lead me to Pace University where my destiny and love of computers began to shape my future. We had so many interesting conversations and that is what I will miss the most about my friend. In the past year, he spoke a lot about his father. I can tell through conversation how much he admired him. I got the feeling he wished he had listened more to all the great advice he had to share with his son. I remember the day when he got his father to drive into the city with us for work. Bart and I would take my 76 Grand Prix to school in the morning. That morning his father sat in the front seat while I drove. It was common to push the drivers seat back into a very reclined position. It was slow driving in traffic on the BQE so that recline position for a twenty year old seemed just find. I found out the next day that his father was terrified sitting in the passenger seat. Bart told me he kept looking over at me and couldn’t tell if my eyes were open in that recline position. Well, let’s say, I never got the opportunity to drive his father into the city again. That 1976 black Grand Prix was my pride and joy. The paint was like a mirror and the vehicle was meticulously, kept by a bodybuilder up the block from Bart’s house. Yes! Bart was the one who introduced me to that car that my grandmother bought for me. Thank you Bart, I truly loved that car. I’m going to miss you buddy.

We shared so many good times and so many bad times with Bard. He was difficult, to be sure. Sometimes impossible! But during this sad time, I prefer to focus on his virtues. He was generous toward his friends, family, and strangers. It was not unusual for him to offer a freezing mailman or a delivery boy a warm drink. Or send extravagant gifts to his siblings and family, like 20 lobster tails and 10 pounds of salmon! And no one loved his dog, Boots, more than Bard, except for our father. It is hard to express one’s feelings, so often marked by ambiguities and shadings. However, perhaps C.S. Lewis, no stranger to suffering, captures them best. "Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained." Did we make a difference? Did we show enough compassion and understanding? Perhaps not always. But we loved Bard, however imperfectly. Bard, you will always live in our hearts and minds. Rest in Peace. Love, Joanne and Richard

I am not sure if this is the Anthony Casino from Troy Avenue. We took the bus together to PS119, Kindergarten if it is. I am so sorry for the loss of Anthony and the loss to the Casino family regardless of if it were the Anthony I knew or not. May you be at peace and your family find comfort.
