Obituary for Attilio "Sonny" Venturo

Attilio "Sonny"  Venturo
Attilio “Sonny” Venturo, 93, a lifelong Roselle Park, N.J. resident passed peacefully on February 9, 2018, surrounded by his family and was truly of “The Greatest Generation.”
Funeral is from the Mastapeter Funeral Home, 400 Faitoute Ave., Roselle Park, on Friday, February 16, 2018 at 8:30am. A Funeral Mass will be offered at 10am in Church of the Assumption in Roselle Park. Interment will be at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield.
Visitation is Thursday 4 to 8pm.
Born in the house his father built, Sonny would always live in a home built by a Venturo.
After graduating from Roselle Park High School, Sonny enlisted in the US Army Air Force serving his country during World War II in the Pacific Arena, he held the rank of Sergeant and was the recipient of four Bronze Star Medals. Ever the story teller, he would often regale his friends and family with tales from these times.
After returning from the War, Sonny spear-headed the family construction business, N. Venturo & Sons. A true “Contractor’s Contractor,” his opinion on engineering and construction issues was often sought out within the professional community. Sonny served as the Commissioner on behalf of Roselle Park to the Rahway Valley Sewerage Authority for many years. Never truly retiring, Sonny was always happy to offer his opinion on anything construction related.
Sonny would say his greatest achievement was raising his family.
In 1952, Sonny married Thatiana “Tina” (nee: Bazuk), together they raised three sons, Gregory, Robert and Perry in a home he built.
His unconditional love for his five grandchildren was undeniable and he spent every hour he could with them. Family dinners were always an important ritual for the Venturo family. Even in his 93rd year, Sonny could be found enjoying dinner and a glass of wine with all four generations of his family.
He is predeceased by his beloved wife of 54 years Thatiana “Tina” in 2006, and his loving son Gregory in 1996.
Attilio is survived by his two loving sons, Robert and his wife, Cynthia, and Perry and his wife, Teresa; his five adored grandchildren, Brian and his wife, Heather, Candace, Christopher, Mason and Brooke; and his cherished namesake great-grandson, Attilio.
