Luis S. Bonanno
Luis Sheeder Bonanno, son of the late David J. Bonanno and Kathleen A. Sheeder Bonanno, brother of the late Leidy Sheeder-Bonanno died on 2/14/2022. Luis is survived by his daughter Isabella Rose (Bella), his daughter Alaina, his daughter, Emma, his life partner, Jessica, and several aunts, uncles and many other relatives.
Luis graduated from Springfield High School in 2000 and enlisted in the US Navy shortly after. He was proud of his naval service where he was assigned to the USS Juneau in Sasebo, Japan. After the service, he was trained in roofing and the building trades and had completed a real estate development course and at one-time owned a contracting company.
Luis struggled with addiction for much of his life but had recently been in recovery in a Veteran’s program and was doing well. He was well-liked by his peers, was engaged in the community and enrolled in a peer counseling class. He had reconnected with his family and friends.
Luis was personable, smart, a natural storyteller like his mom and had a mischievous sense of humor. He loved to fish and cook for his friends. He adored his pugs and other pets and especially enjoyed spending time with family.
Luis had to bear the terrible loss of his sister at an early age and the death of both his parents in recent years. May his life force be reconnected with them and made whole in whatever lies beyond.
Family and friends are invited to Luis’s Memorial Service on April 30, 2022 at 3:00 P.M. at the Unitarian Society of Germantown, 6511 Lincoln Drive Philadelphia, PA 19119 (please check their website for up-to-date Covid-19 protocol). Luis requested that his cremains be spread at Pastorious Park, Chestnut Hill where his parents would take him and his beloved sister for Shakespeare in the Park plays and Peace Valley Park where he spent time fishing and hiking with loved ones.
