David James Buscemi, Sr.

Marines simple cremation

David James Buscemi, Sr. passed peacefully on January 20, 2024. He was 86 years old.

David is survived by his wife, Ellen; his daughter, Denise; his son, David Jr.; his two brothers: Edward (Marianne) Buscemi and Carl Michael (Kathy)Buscemi. Also surviving are several grandchildren and, soon, one great grandchild. David was predeceased by his parents, Carl and Angela Buscemi; his sister, Linda (Richard) Daudelin; and three grandchildren, Nylah and Zain Syed, and Evedene Buscemi.

David was proud to be a United States Marine. He was a sharp shooter and a straight talker. He excelled as a handyman, a roller coaster inspector, and was a beloved bus driver. Known as Bruno to many of his friends, David was gregarious and brought community and a good laugh where ever he went. He was an extremely hard worker and, if you needed it, he would give you the shirt off his back (even if he wasn’t similarly inclined to share his spaghetti). David will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

There will be a celebration of life for David on February 3, 2024 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at Spinelli’s Restaurant, 303 Macedon Center Road, Fairport, New York.
