Obituary of Jack Joseph Vanasco Sr.
Jack Joseph Vanasco, Sr., age 95, of Brooklyn, passed away on Saturday, February 3, 2024. He was born on March 5, 1928, in Brooklyn, New York, to the late Thomas Richard Vanasco I, and Frances (DeAngelis) Vanasco. Jack was a devoted husband, and he was married to the love of his life, Theresa Vanasco, until her passing in 1988. He kept her memory alive by proudly displaying photographs of Theresa throughout the years, cherishing the moments they shared.
Sadly, Jack experienced another heartbreak just a few months ago when he lost his beloved son, Jack Joseph Vanasco, Jr., in December. Despite the recent loss, Jack found solace in the love and support of his surviving daughter-in-law, Diane Vanasco.
Jack was a proud veteran who served in the Army during World War II. His service was a source of great pride for him, and he carried the values instilled during his military years throughout his life. Jack was a simple, kind-hearted man who cherished the close bond he shared with his son.
A devout Catholic, Jack's faith played a significant role in his life, providing him with strength and guidance. His unwavering faith was a source of comfort and solace, especially during challenging times.
Jack is survived by his brother, Roy "Rocco" Vanasco, and nieces and nephews, Frances, Amelia, Patrice, Thomas, Mark, and Joel, along with their families. He is preceded in death by his brothers, Terry Vanasco, Thomas Vanasco, and Joseph Vanasco.
