John Bamonte Obituary
John David Bamonte weighed in his last string of reds and signed his last scorecard on February 12, 2014. Born June 7, 1953 in Mahopac, New York, John had just turned sixty when he began his courageous fight against cancer. John graduated from Western New England University in 1971. He spent a long career in the fastener industry where he gained many friends and much respect. Most recently, John and Preston Quenette were co-owners of Albritton-Groves, Inc. located in Houston and Grand Prairie, Texas. John is survived by his wife, Jo Miller Bamonte of Conroe; his father, Benjamin P. Bamonte, of Mahopac, New York, Karen Bamonte and husband Martin Stubenrauch of Spoleto, Italy. Survivors also include his in-law family, Donis Miller, John and Mary Lynn Langley and Chuck and Cindy Miller. He was preceded in death by his mother, Vera Vetter Bamonte. Besides his family, he leaves behind a special group of friends who are also counted among family. John was the consummate competitor, which long ago earned him the nickname "Bulldog," an endearing and enduring term. His life-long love of golf began at age thirteen when he began caddying at the Mahopac Country Club. John played with his golfing buddies at Panorama "The Village" for almost thirty years and also enjoyed his friends at Walden on Lake Conroe. John got his first fishing pole at age five and was hooked. He began fishing with his Dad, first by practicing casting on the family lawn. He found nothing more peaceful than throwing top waters on the bay, wade fishing with friends for specs and reds. John and Jo loved to cook. Both enjoyed sharing their food and home with family and friends and did so frequently, whether it be their holiday Buon Natale Italian dinners, their back yard fish fries, or a simple trout almondine dinner around the coffee table. John was long time lover of Labrador retrievers. He and Taylormaid shared a love and indelible bond sealed by hour upon hour of "ball over the roof" in the back yard. John leaves an unsurpassed legacy exemplifying values of honesty, professionalism, integrity and friendship. "Love leaves so much more behind than death can ever take away." We're going to miss you, Bulldog. The family will receive and greet friends on Sunday, February 16, 2014, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. in the Cashner Colonial Chapel, 801 Teas Road, Conroe, Texas 77303. On Monday, February 17, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. a Celebration of John's life will be held in Cashner Colonial Chapel with Rev. Jerry Neff officiating. You are invited to view our webpage and leave written condolences to the family at www.cashnerconroe.com
