Obituary of Peter Bruno

Peter J. Bruno, age 88, of Flemington, NJ died on July 20, 2022. Born August 8, 1933 in Sicily, Italy. He was the son of Cosimo & Carmela Bruno. His family moved to the United States in 1947 when Pete was 14. He met the love of his life, Carol Elaine Mizerek in 1953 and married her three years later on April 21, 1956.

Peter enlisted in the Army in 1955 and moved his new wife to Alabama while he was stationed there. For all who have known Peter, they know how much he loved to tell stories about his many adventures in the Army during the Korean war.

After the Army, Peter and Carol moved back to NJ and settled into their first house in Dunellen NJ in 1960 to raise a family. They eventually moved to Bridgewater where they lived for over 30 years. He opened up his own business “House of Styles” in Fanwood when he was 35. The business was active until he retired at age 75.
Pete and Carol loved to travel especially to the Caribbean. The family has many fond memories of going to Island Beach State Park every Monday in the summer. In the winter, Peter was known to let his son play hooky to take him skiing. He had a passion for flying and took every opportunity to share his passion with his children. His greatest love, though, was his family and most of all his grandchildren!

Peter was the cherished husband of Carol Elaine. He is survived by one son, Peter (Connie), two daughters, Tina Grose (Rob), Kathy Kohler (Rich); a brother, Mario; 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his brother, Carmelo A. Bruno.

Cremation was private.  A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 AM on Monday, July 25, 2022, at St. Joseph Church in Bound Brook.
