Bardales, Norman R.
Endwell: Norman Richard Bardales, 85, of Endwell, went to the Lord peacefully on July 30, 2014 after being diagnosed with lymphoma. Born in New York City to Emma and Elisio Bardales, Norman is survived by his sister, Eleanor Garvey; along with his niece and nephews, Arnold, Francis, Paul, and Warren; and his sisters-in-law, Barbara Lynn and Carole Start. He is predeceased by his wife of 47 years, Eileen Bardales; his sister, Dorothy Treuhaft; and brother, Richard Bardales. Norman will be lovingly remembered by his children, Joseph Bardales, Karen O'Connor and husband Michael, and Carolyn Yasharian and husband Robert. Through laughter and smiles he will be kept close and fondly remembered by his adoring grandchildren, Trish O'Connor, Daniel Norman O'Connor, Jonny O'Connor, Chloe O'Connor, and Sophie Yasharian. He is remembered by his special and enduring friendships with so many, especially his West 62nd Street Boys as "Bots," his Our Lady of Angels Paris Family that grew even more as the Church of the Holy Family, and neighbors old and new. With a BEE from Manhattan College and a JD from St. John's University, Norman Bardales held office in the Law Association, was a Central New York patent attorney, member of the Bar Association of New York State and a registered patent attorney. Upon moving to Upstate New York, he was a member of the Broome County Bar Association and the Broome County Legal Association. He retired from IBM as a patent attorney in 1990. In his spiritual life he was the President of the Midtown Catholic Association, a member of the Holy Name Society at the Church of the Holy Family, and in 2012 was the first recipient of the Diocese of Syracuse Immaculata Award. A devout Catholic, a United States Marine, a highly knowledgeable patent attorney, a friend, a spiritual adviser, a faithful Yankees fan, a devoted father and loving husband, Norm's strong faith, loving guidance, wit, and charismatic personality will be missed. He now dances once again with his wife to "Blame it on the Bossanova." A Funeral Mass will be offered at the Church of the Holy Family, Endwell, Monday at 10 a.m. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery, Johnson City. The family will receive friends at the J.A. McCormack Sons Funeral Home, 141 Main St., Binghamton, Sunday from 5-8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Norm's memory to the Church of the Holy Family, 3600 Phyllis St., Endwell, NY 13760.
