I had the honor of meeting Mr. Buster Lofaro in the 8th grade at Kirwin High School when his son Johnny and his three brothers Junior, Sammy, and Alfio became lifetime friends. So many memories of Mr. Lofaro during high school, college and adult life. My fondest memory was watching Mr. Lofaro set up scaffolding in the living room of his house and laying on his back to paint the The Lord’s Last Supper on the ceiling. The guy had some skills. The way he painted Jesus eyes to watch you as you walk throughout the house. Unbelivable! Michelangelo would tip his hat to Mr. Lofaro. Walking throughout the house was like walking through a world class museum. All the paintings were created by one gifted artist - Mr. Sabastian “Buster” Lofaro. Of course, this was accomplished by the unconditional support of his wife Mrs. Grace Lofaro. I can only wonder what St. Peter will task Mr. Lofaro to paint in heaven.

Our heartfelt and deepest sympathies are with you at this most difficult time. May our, Lord, Jesus Christ, be with you and give you the strength to carry on.

Time stands still for no one. We enter into this world a blank slate. Our parents, our cousins, our relatives and our friends all provide strokes of paint on our canvas of life. We become who we are because of those around us. Buster was brought up with the best life had to offer, "I Trezotti". I remember the parties outside by the pool, I remember the movies, the card games and for me the music. Buster and his mandolin, playing "Double Eagle", Roll Out the Barrell", O Solo Mio, Santa Lucia and Ce La Luna to name a few..and so many other tunes as everyone gathered around enjoying the memories of the moment. He lived a long and impactful life. He demeanor and his talents drew many to his side, and as a result many were influenced by him. Because of this, Buster will never be forgotten. Wherever he was during his life, he left a little bit of himself behind, and that moment will be remembered and the stories that follow will be told for generations. A good man who loved life, a good husband who loved his wife Grace, a good father who loved his boys, a good grandfather who loved his grandchildren. Can anyone ask for anything else in a life? I suppose we could ask to life forever.......and in fact.....that is exactly what he is doing now in the Glory of God, with all the others who have gone before him and with those who will follow...including ourselves. Thank You Sebastian for impacting my life and making me a better person through your example. I will never forget you.

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Lofaro. Growing up I just lived around the corner from Mr. and Mrs. Lofaro. Mr. Lofaro fixed my blessed mother statue that I got from my grandmother and I have attached a picture of it. It is simply beautiful. I keep it on my dresser. This was about 15 years ago. Prayers for the family especially Mrs. Lofaro. God has called one of his angels home.

It is with a saddened Heart that we offer our sincere condolences to your families at the loss of such a wonderful person. We never truly know who we touch in our lives yet Mr. Lafaro was one of those rare people who did. He was always supportive of his family and friends. We became a extended part of the family through being a part of his son’s life. Thanks Sir for being such a great example. Chuck & Patty
