STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - Remembered for his compassion and community service, Michael P. Bruno, 82, a New Springville resident since 1989, died Monday at Eger Health Care and Rehabilitation Center, Egbertville.

Born in the Bronx, he moved with his family to Staten Island, grew up in Dongan Hills, graduated from PS 11, and attended McKee High School.

A Korean War veteran, he served in the U.S. Army from 1951 to 1953

Mr. Bruno was employed for over 30 years as a field maintenance supervisor for Texaco, and retired in 1992. "He maintained many wonderful friendships made during his decades of service there," said his younger daughter, Dianne Luberto.

"He was a wonderful husband and father, the most caring and compassionate person I've ever known, and he spoiled me rotten," said the former Rose Lichinchi, his wife of 62 years.

"He was my hero," added his daughter, Susan Bruno. "And he's an angel already looking down on us."

"He always helped out his neighbors," said his daughter Dianne. "He enjoyed reading, being involved in his community, and most of all spending time with his family, especially his new great-grandson, Caleb Sherry."

Mr. Bruno was a member of the Staten Island Historical Society, and volunteer at the Bennett Cafe in Historic Richmond Town, where he was an expert meat-carver. He served on the board of directors of the Elmwood Park II Condominium Association, and was a parishioner at St. Patrick's R.C. Church in Richmond.

He was also very active in the former Ostomy Association, family said.

In addition to his wife, Rose, daughters Dianne and Susan, he is survived by four grandchildren and one great-grandson.

The funeral service will be Saturday from the Hanley Funeral Home in New Dorp, with a mass at 10 a.m. in St. Patrick's Church. Burial will follow in Moravian Cemetery, New Dorp.
